“Ok!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

They no longer offer meals. However a platter is available which was quite nice though not exceptional.
Wine is excellent with tasting charge waived when we bought a bottle to enjoy with the platter.
Staff Pam pleasant and service good though there were few patrons

“friendly, and loved the platters”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Looking at the other reviews just reminds us how important service is. We had good service during our lunch visit to Alana, enjoyed tasting the wines before we selected which ones we wanted with our lunches, then enjoyed platters of good food – one of the best platters we had in a week of touring wineries. Perhaps a few more additions to the eating area (plants, pots, other features) as feels a bit bland, but we still enjoyed sitting outdoors and relaxing….

“Stop by for a tasting”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Reading some of the reviews of others, I would have to disagree with the negative remarks. Having said that we did visit at 11am on a Wednesday, so not a peak time and no events. Staff were friendly, wines were great and the tasting cost was waived when we bought a bottle. The grounds are also well kept.
The short of it is - they are a winery not a pub and do this well.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This winery appears to have gone back since our last visit in 2008. Unfortunately it lacks staff. We visitied for a wine tasting & lunch. After waiting 15mins & no one came to take even an order for drinks as we sat in the restaurant, we then left. There was only one person to manage the tastings & the restaurant.

“K&K Farmer”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Location is outside town area of Martinborough. Long walk down past grapevines to the ampitheatre area. Have a ttended 6 outdoor concerts. Each concert has been unique in its enjoyment factor for different reason. Venue to professionally laid out, well serviced with different areas designated for toilets, food and bar facilities. Staff wander among the concert goers with wine, beer and ice creams. Food has limited options but is freshly made and enjoyable. Recommend attending a concert as everyone is friendly and crowd is always in good spirits
