Owner description: Poppies Martinborough is the tasting room cellar door for our wines we serve a simple but beautiful vineyard platter for lunch that we believe will enhance our wines
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A highlight of our wander around the Martinborough wineries - and our tour of NZ! It's a little way out of town if you're on foot but well worth the effort.
A lovely warm welcome, an informative talk by the enthusiastic winemaker (Poppy) and a VERY relaxing lunch on the terrace (summer platter to share followed by lemon and coconut tart - both wonderful - with a glass of our choice of the wines we'd tasted). We didn't want to leave!!

This is a new venue with a very limited menu i.e, a platter or a platter. But is was excellent. Wine tasting friendly with an informed smile. Very busy over Easter weekend. Attentive staff and a passionate owner called Poppy Hammond

Despite only a small selection of wine and a limited menu, we enjoyed a very tsty Mediterranean style meal along with a wonderful young Pinot Gris.
Unfortunately our unsophisticated palates did not really "get" the Martinborough specialty - pinot noir. Or possibly this is a case of the Emperor and his special new suit of (invisble ) clothes?
Anyway we enjoyed the food and wine at Poppies and would recommend including this venue on your tour of the area.
Not yet on the local tourist maps hence this recommendation.

Recently opened just outside Martinborough township - this one really is worth putting on your vineyards circuit.
Great front-of- house person in Poppy (the winemaker) presenting their wine and very well supported by the team including Shayne (in the kitchen that day) and as the viticulturist out and about the vines. This is a great new venue fitting its locale - and they produced a tasting platter which was very good indeed (along with excellent service).
A very enjoyable couple of hours - and ('bye the way) Poppies wine is good as well.

Fabulous location. Wonderful, friendly staff. Beautifully and tastefully appointed overlooking the vineyards. This is sure to become a destination in Martinborough, and a sought-after location for weddings and family gatherings.
