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 July 9, 2014

We stayed at a beautiful B&B (Old Manse) in Martinborough and did a walk of the wineries. we arrived at Poppies hoping to get lunch, they were just about to shut their kitchen as they had a wedding that evening however they said they would still serve us something and we left it to Poppy's husband - forgotten his name, and he came out with this beautiful platter, we had wine tasting with Poppy she is very passionate about their vineyard and a terrific host. We had a lovely bottle of wine with our platter and a very pleasant afternoon highly recommend, all staff were friendly and even thou they had a function to get ready for we were by no means 'hurried along'.if you are in Martinborough definitely visit.

Poppies cafe is part of Poppies winery, run and owned by Poppy (winemaker) and her husband, who is the viticulturist. They were both there on the Sunday that we visited, Poppy hosting the wine tastings, and her husband helping with serving the platters. One can taste the wine then sit at a table, or as we did sit in lovely old leather chairs by an open fire. We were then served a beautifully presented platter with a fresh baguette and a wide variety of foods such as thin slices of pork belly and beef fillet, smoked salmon, grilled zucchini, stuffed vine leaves, hummus tapenade, brie, roasted red peppers, marinated mushrooms and so on . It was all absolutely delicious and a great accompaniment to the wines. The ambiance is casual, friendly, but efficient. I imagine in the summer it would be just as pleasant sitting outside. If you are wanting to eat as we did, it might be a good idea to book first, especially around lunch time. It was very busy when we were there, and we can understand why !

My husband and I had a lovely visit to Poppies this afternoon. It had been recommended to me by a shop assistant in Greytown who is a Martinborough local.
We were greeted on entry by Pip who was very friendly .She served us several wines to taste and seemed knowledgable and enthusiastic about the wines we tried. She, just as importantly had a way of making you feel at ease and welcome. After trying four or five wines we sat down to a beautiful platter for lunch. With sixteen different things to try, all freshly prepared on the premises, it was delicious and great value at $40 for two people. The platter is gluten free so if you want bread you can order it for an extra couple of dollars, which to me is a very good thing because so often when you order an antipasto platter, it comes bulked up with loads of bread and not much of anything else. This platter is great for both meat eaters and vegetarians( my husband eats meat but I don't) There was such a great variety on the platter that we were both very satisfied . Our waitress was lovely too.I would recommend this as a lovely place to spend a relaxing afternoon and we will definitely be going back in the summer when we can really make the most of the beautiful setting.

When in Martinborough you can't bypass this place. Not only are the grounds and wine amazing. It also serves up great food for something for substantial than the other wineries in town. The owner is lovely and friendly and was more than happy to participate in photo taking for us! Has an amazing function room - perfect for a wedding! Looking forward to going back.
