I will just say I have eaten a lot of chicken in my life..... I am 40 & showing signs of all my worldly eating. The chicken lunch I had at Villa Maria was quite possibly the nicest chicken I have ever eaten. Sides of fresh broccolini & the softest potato gratin..... WOW.

A great Pinot Noir with the meal & the slightly industrial concrete meets winery meets resto feel was perfect.. over looking the vineyard.

A definate must try if you have time in Auckland.

We came here last Thursday (17 July) for our work Mid Year Function (9 people). We arrived at 2.30pm to a very warm friendly welcome. We had a variety of different entrees - I chose the Vegetarian Platter to share as a starter (between 3 of us) - it was absolutely amazing and was more than enough for 4-5 people. Followed by the fish of the day - another delicious meal - Harpuka cooked to perfection on a bed of spagetti with cray fish broth. The wine was also devine and very reasonably priced. We had the sav blanc/Pinot Gris and a Sav Blanc Reserve both highly recommended. The service was very attentive without being too obtrusive. Highly recommend a visit to Villa Maria if you are in the area and I will definately be going back sometime soon I hope. Thank you and well done

We pent a few hours here before flying home to Australia, We met Sir George and his wife who were the perfect hosts and amazing people to have created such a magnificent winery - the restaurant is world class with the freshest of NZ produce prepared beautifully - and of course the Villa Maria wines are crafted with a great love of wine which is so obvious from all the team at Villa Maria. well done and thank you all for the experience
