Charming boutique winery with a hands on label to represent all of their hard work in creating these vineyards and wine! We really enjoyed their Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

I visited Bladen as part of an organized wine tour. It was our final stop of the day, and our guide said he had been saving the best for last. The cellar door has a cute little outdoor bar where we tried delicious wines in...More

They were full of hospitality and have a great passion for their wines. A lovely couple that really look after you. And amazing wines! Their property is not far from Blenheim so a lovely bike ride.

Great time on our bike tour around the wineries. Bladen were particularly special for their quality, size and welcome. John hosted a tasting with a small group of us and spun a good yarn. We picked up a few bottles of their Gewürztraminer 2017 and...More

A great place to try wines with the family that created them. Very laid back cellar door and great wines. Don’t miss this spot on your tour. They were rated as the best for 2017.
