Our Marlborough winery and tasting room are nestled in amongst our vineyards in the heart of Sauvignon Blanc country just outside of the town of Renwick, 10km from Blenheim. The atmosphere is relaxed and family-friendly, you may even catch a glimpse of Frankie the family dog. The tasting room has a casual feel with comfortable seating in and out, and bean bags to enjoy a lounge in the sun. An eclectic selection of wines from the Forrest and Doctors range are available to taste or be adventurous and try a tasting tray with your choice of seven wines for $12 We pride ourselves on providing informative discussions about our wines, winemaking and our region. A selection of different food platters are available. Throughout the summer our Sunday Sessions will see us hosting a different local musician every Sunday afternoon. Open Thursday-Monday 10.30am -4.30pm and seven days a week from December. Closed Christmas Day, Good Friday, ANZAC Day morning. Enjoy this world famous wine trail.

We had high expectations after local recommendations and reviews here but from our initial phone reservation we felt unwanted and like an inconvenience. As soon as we arrived we had a frosty reception from the staff member who greeted and seated, the 2nd staff member who looked after us however was awesome, passionate, personable and explained the wines with zest, however we left underwhelmed and wished we had skipped this stop on our girls day out and spent out time and money elsewhere.

We booked a wine tour through Wine Tours by Bike (also recommended) and this was our favorite stop along the way. If you can get Becky to treat you to a tasting, make sure you do. She was AMAZING and you could tell how passionate she was about making wine. The wine was amazing but her personality and explanation of it made us feel like we were sitting in someone's living room learning about what they love to do.

We visited this winery while biking the Marlborough Wine Trail. It was our favorite "cellar door" of the day for several reasons: the staff was friendly and welcoming, the outdoor seating was lovely and comfortable, and the food and wine were terrific. The options offered at this winery were a great value, in particular, a flight of seven premium wines for $10. We also enjoyed the cheese platter, which included dried fruit and venison terrine in addition to the typical cheese and crackers.

Some of the nicest staff we experienced in 3 weeks in NZ. The ambiance, inside was quite pleasant and super outside. The cheese platter with accoutrements was delicious. The wines were enjoyable and the value, both for wine and food, were excellent. And having patrons dogs there was fun, although we didn't have one.

Our tasting host was incredibly friendly and answered all of our questions. The wines were also quite delicious! They have a great outdoor space if you can hang around.
