This is a quaint little place to sample some wine($) or purchase some. There are a few different shops for souvenirs and a cafe for a hot or cold drink and eats. Also a quilting and wool shop.

We were disappointed with this $5 wine tasting. There were four small tastes of the standard wines... no reserves or special tastes offered. Don’t waste your money or time.More

Very nice lady at the cellar door, full of information and answers to our questions. It was 4 dollars to taste 4 wines which was reasonable. Definitely a good spot to stop along the Marlborough wine trail
