This wonderful dinning experience started with a late arrival due to
poor signage. The food preparation and matching wine more than made up for our initial difficulty. All the wines were described by the
wine maker Peter. The ambiance was enhanced by the guitar player and his music.

We visited not for the wine, but to catch the view of the whole valley and even saw the south coast of the North Island. Beautiful facility. Also watched a video that gave a good overview of this ground breaking winery.

The view is nice but so are the views at many other wineries. Long walk up the hill as car park is a long way up a hill. I found the Staff were very rude and judgemental. Others I spoke to said they have made a lot of mistakes and upset a lot of people.

There are many better places to eat and enjoy the wines.

I won't be drinking their wines any more. They sure left a bad taste in my mouth.

Had lunch today and it was superb
The menu read so well I could have eaten everything
I went for fish special and my wife for an entree. The quality presentation and taste were superb
We also took the recommended wines for both dishes and they were delightful
Eating and drinking in a restaurant with lovely views doesn’t get any better

Thank Martin D
