This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed the wine, food, environment and staff. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. The food very tasty and wine so good we just had to buy a few bottles. We definitely recommend.

Lucky we were warned to book only got a 2pm booking but glad we did. Pate was substantial and plenty for two. Duck was exceptional and well balanced. Mussel soup and bread was very good. No room for desert. Highly recommended.

Must visit in Marlborough, every time I visit the food and wines are great so you must stop for lunch when in the area!

We planned to sit outside and sample the wine but no sampling today and only one outside server apparently meant we had to eat inside. Food was ok but salty and expensive. An average experience compared to many others. Enjoy....

We really liked this place. The wine was delicious and very affordable compared to many places around. We bought three bottles and can't wait to break one open!

On our day in Marlborough we enjoyed ourselves at many wineries, but Wairau River stand out because it serves delicious food along with their lovely wines. The wine tasting experience was very enjoyable and educational. The staff helped up with great pairings as well. We took some lovely photos and enjoyed our time at Wairau River.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here sitting on the patio. A beautiful setting.

Our food was really tasty. We shared the bread to start with dips, and then one of us had the salmon salad which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the burger. For the vegetarian version of the burger they use roasted cauliflower and it was truly divine. And I must say, the best fries I have ever had in my life. Fantastic.

Oh, and the wine was good too :)
We would recommend.

Stayed in Blenheim for the month of January with my daughter who lives on Rapaura Road - so we visited a number of wineries.
This winery at the very end of Rapaura Rd is delightful. We had booked for lunch. We arrived ordered our food then then went for a wine tasting whilst the food was being prepared.
The person who conducted our wine tasting was charming, knowledgable and full full of enthusiasm.
It helped us make a decision of which wines to pair with our food.
The food menu is not extensive but the food was beautifully prepared and the whole experience was relaxed and totally enjoyable.

Go here and have the Chicken Burger, it’s immense!! The pavlova and coffees were great too. Tasting next door was good and complimentary for having eaten there.
