Description: Come and 'taste the terroir' at Gladstone Vineyard, one of the most beautiful vineyards in New Zealand. TASTINGS & WINE SALES Our cellar door is open daily from 11.00am–4.30pm (except public holidays). Discover the story behind the wines, get some great cellar door specials, and walk away with some wines to enjoy and cellar. Free tastings of our award-winning Gladstone Vineyard and 12,000 Miles wines are available at cellar door or sit down in the wine garden to enjoy a tasting tray of our current release red (4x50ml pours $20) or white (4x50ml pours $15) wines. We also welcome larger groups (10 people or more) for tastings and winery tours. Please call ahead or email us to book ($5 pp for tasting, $10 pp for a winery tour and tasting). PLATTERS & REVERSE BYO The sunny and sheltered wine garden overlooks the vineyard and is a great spot to spend a long, lazy afternoon. All our wines are available by the glass or bottle to be enjoyed in our relaxed and family-friendly setting with a petanque court and childrens' play area. You can pick and mix from a selection of New Zealand cheeses, local pate and crackers, which we will serve to you on a platter with relishes and chutneys to enjoy with your wines. We also operate a Reverse BYO – which means you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the wine garden or on a picnic rug down by the pond, as long as you purchase your beverages from us. As well as our wide range of wines, we have beer, soft drinks and tea/coffee available. A BBQ is also available for hire on request ($10 for gas and cleaning). OUR BEAUTIFUL PLACE After you've enjoyed some of our beautiful wines, discover there's more to Gladstone Vineyard. Take a stroll around the wetlands, check out the weta hotel, feed the ducks by the pond, or play a game of cricket or frisbee by the windmill.

“Hidden gem.”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

We risked a slight detour to visit this restaurant, based on only one review, but were pleasantly surprised. Although we arrived after two in the afternoon and chef was concerned they had run out of most of the main menu items, they seated us with a smile and managed to rustle up a ploughmans and a seafood platter for two (which they only charged us for a single). Food was lovely, home baked bread, good selection of cold meats and cheeses. The setting was delightful and the service was not to be faulted. We would definitely return. Note. I think the location in trip advisor may be slightly off so check the website to be sure.

“Great rural location”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

Very relaxed atmosphere with a good cross section of people visiting this place, great menu which changes (I have become familiar with as I bring my ailing Dad here every few weeks for a nice getaway in a great setting) It is his place of choice for lunch. There is a relaxed outdoor area with tables and umbrellas; you can be seated far enough away from smokers. Great service, for meals and at the bar.
