One of the smaller vineyards that we visited yesterday and so lovely to be entertained by the actual owner rather than someone just doing a job! The passion for the business certainly shone through. These guys produce some great wine and I would definitely recommend a visit

The cellar door here is tiny but Bladen sell really nice wine at reasonable prices. The owner seems to really enjoy having people visit, he answered all of our questions and was happily answering some highly technical questions from another visitor too. The other guy didn't buy anything either, just loaded up on tasters and info but the owner didn't... More

Many thanks for your comments and I am pleased you enjoyed your visit. For the record I am always disappointed if people leave without a purchase as this is our livelihood, but would never show that disappointment as that would not be professional and there are many reasons why someone does not purchase. I would love everyone to understand the... More

One of the more relaxed and family run cellar doors. We enjoyed these wines but also learning the origins of the winery.

What a pleasant surprise this winery was, with its tiny tasting room, hand made wines and expert and friendly staff, not to mention some of the best wines in the region! You must visit this winery while in the Marlborough.

Bladen Wines is nestled in on Conders Bend Road in Renwick, just on the outskirts of Blenheim. Lovely award winning wines, great hospitality, friendly & knowledgable team & open cellar door most days. You can arrive via car, mini van if there's a crowd of you or hire a bike. Take your credit card. You won't want to leave empty... More

Superb overall tasting experience. Extremely welcoming host who showcased a good range of his wines in a relaxed and informative manner. We spent more than an hour chatting about a whole range of things, which culminated in sending a half case home, such was the excellent quality of what we tasted. No shipping charge to U.K. addresses. Highly recommend.

This was by far the best vineyard we visited during our cycle trip. It's a small family run business and the people there are very passionate and knowledgable. All the wines were delicious, we could have spent the whole day there.

A small family owned and run winery. We had a great time chatting with the owner, tasting his handcrafted wine. The wine was superb! A very relaxing and enjoyable experience indeed. If you're not a fan of large winery, Bladen is your top choice.

We were taken to Bladen on the recommendation from Dave our fantastic guide from Highlight's wine tours and it turned out to be our favourite winery of the day. A small family run winery with beautiful wines. We had a great tasting session with Dave the owner who has passionate and genuine and it was just simply delightful.
