“Fantastic platters for lunch”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Poppie herself explained her wines and showed us around their lovely premises. We felt so welcome and thoroughly enjoyed her wines. Would love to taste this years vintage.

“Elegance all the way!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

On my brief visit to Martinborough recently, it was recommended by 2 local businesses that I visit the relatively new Poppies. From the meet and greet at the door by Pip, followed swiftly by the warm welcome from Poppy and Shayne, I was hooked! The wines were elegant and refined, service was warm & friendly and the venue itself was just beautiful - gorgeous venue for a wedding!

Can't recommend their wines enough - definitely a stand out from anything I had tasted before and I have been in the wine industry in the Hunter Valley for nearly 10 years. I was very impressed and would (and have already) recommend them as a "must see' in the region. Keep up the great work guys!

“A relaxing lunch”
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

“Nice little boutique vineyard /café only recently opened so not yet on the tourist maps.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

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.
