What a fabulous setting for wine tasting overlooking the vineyards and Waimea inlet. Michal was a great host, describing the wine making and nuances of production. Great variety of good wines.

The lady owner here was excellent. The seeing of the vineyard and the views across the vines to the inlet were stunning. A very informative tasting which led to purchase of their delightful Rose. We have not been to rimu bar down at water front.
