    Wine tasting experience to remember
    A hidden gem in Kurow. A choice of Valli wines to taste - four different pinot noirs from Gibbston, Bannockburn, Bendigo, and Waitaki; or a selection of four different. whites. At the same time hearing the story of how the wines came to be ably told by Andrew MacFarlane. A great place to wile away some time.
    Hi Elaine, Thank you for stopping in and tasting our subregional Pinots. I’m glad you got to enjoy them and thank you for the entertaining conversation. Cheers, Andrew

    A lovely afternoon at Valli Wine Bar
    We had a lovely afternoon at the Valli Wine Bar in Kurow. We were a party of eight, with guests visiting from Australia. Both the food and the wine was beautiful. Thank you to Andrew, Grant and Nicole for both teaching us about the wines and the wonderful service. Would highly recommend a visit.

    A wonderful way to wile away an afternoon
    Wow. What a wonderful surprise to come across such a fabulous venue in the Waitaki Valley. The wine bar has changed hands and has been given a new lease on life. The renovation of the Old Post Office is incredibly sympathetic and pays homage to the era it was built. A warm, inviting and interesting space. We were blown away by the wines - the Chardonnay is our favourite tipple, closely followed by the most versatile wine to accompany food - The Real McCoy Orange wine. We had the pleasure of chatting to the winemaker himself, Grant Taylor, his lovely wife Nicole Schofield and their bar manager Andrew MacFarlane. Such a wonderful way to end a challenging year and bring in the new year with a top drop. Thanks team. An afternoon to remember. Cheers Drea

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great oasis with wonderful Valli wines and good beers. Andrew was the perfect host. As a bonus Grant Taylor was there to chat with. Couldn’t have been a better experience.
