Excellent winery experience.
Mar 2020 • Friends
Lawson’s Dry Hills was the first winery we visited on our self guided tour today. Nevena was welcoming,friendly and very knowledgeable and the wines she offered were all delectable. It was a great start to our day as she gave us lots of tips for the Marlborough area and other places to visit too. We would highly recommend anyone visit here and we are sure you will enjoy your visit as much as we did. Thank you again Nevena.

One of the best wineries in New Zealand!
Feb 2020
This is a must do cellar door visit when in Marlborough as we think it is one of the best wineries in New Zealand. Our cellar door experience with Nevena was delightful.....she was welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. Disappointed that their Gewurztraminer wasn't on tasting....but then most people probably already know how sensational it is already :) All the wines we tried were delicious, well made and value for money but the stand out for us was the reserve chardonnay that we will patiently (or maybe not) wait for it to improve over the next few years!

A fantastic cellar door experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
Enjoyed the wine tasting experience greatly. Attendant was most friendly, knew their product and local knowledge extremely well! Able to combine awesome wines with some other local produce onsite to prepare our picnic in the valley. Best cheers to the Marlborough wine growers and their teams. A quality product that was worth the long journey to NZ. Highly recommend this cellar door! We eagerly the next gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris releases.

You are invited to bring your own lunch or buy from them. They have a lovely range of wines to taste, a picturesque setting, welcoming staff ,my type of place. A great place for tasting the delights of the region and also appreciating the landscape.

Must visit cellar door in Marlborough

They have a tiny and cozy setting cellar door. Visitors may be welcomed by Nigel, the Cellar Door manager who is always keen to share his knowledge and experience about Marlborough wines.

One of the best wineries in the Marlborough Region, New Zealand
Mar 2019 • Couples
We visited several wineries around Blenheim and this was our favorite -- informative and gracious "host," no charges, no pressure to buy, and, most important, excellent wine. The tasting center is small, but attractive with a nice cold cabinet of cheeses to purchase to take home and which complement the wines. Highly recommended!

An instructive tasting of some of Marlborough's great wines
Feb 2019 • Couples
Lawson’s Dry Hills was our first stop at a Marlborough tasting room and we were well taken care of by Nigel, who professionally coached us through a good selection of the vineyard's wines including their delightful aromatics, their engaging Sauvignon Blancs, and their remarkably full-bodied Pinot Noirs. The wines are terrific, and competitively priced, and the cellar door itself is a very attractive room. We -- of course -- ended up buying a couple of bottles to drink over the next few days. Highly recommended!

Great wines in a beautiful setting
Jan 2019 • Couples
We discovered the Blind River Sauvignon Blanc at a tasting in Blenheim, and decided to check out the vineyard behind that label. The tasting room is surrounded by beautiful, neatly kept vineyards. We were greeted by a friendly, knowledgeable staff, who guided us through the tasting. Some light fare was also on offer.

Thank you for your review and for coming to see us at Lawson's Dry Hills. The Blind River wines come from our small vineyard in the Awatere Valley - we're delighted you enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc!
