Come and visit Saint Clair Family Estate Vineyard Kitchen to relax, sit back and enjoy the Saint Clair experience. The newly renovated establishment is situated within a unique vineyard setting with views extending past the vines towards the ever changing and dramatic Richmond Range. The sunny courtyard offers outdoor dining with some dining options amongst the vines. On a cooler day an extended veranda section can ensure customers continue to have the vineyard feel while being sheltered from the elements through extensive floor to ceiling glass sliding doors. A cosy fire provides ambience and warmth during the New Zealand winter, an ideal settling to relax and enjoy Saint Clair's award winning wines. A perfect place for a visit for morning or afternoon tea with a selection of muffins and hot drinks available all day. The extensive menu constantly changes reflecting some of the best seasonal produce and finest delicacies Marlborough as to offer. There are a range of options available to meet any dietary requirements. The wine tasting counter is an area to discover the diversity of Saint Clair with a large selection of award winning wines available for tasting daily via an impressive wine preservation system. In addition to these wines there is an extensive range of craft beers from kiwi breweries including Pan Head, Parrot Dog and Marlborough's own Renaissance. A couple of different flavours of locally produced Adam and Eve Cider are also on offer and New Zealand owned brands make up the eclectic array of non-alcoholic beverages. The Saint Clair Vineyard Kitchen is available for private functions and offers catering options to suit all budgets with flexibility to ensure a successful event. Please contact us to discuss further. When visiting the Saint Clair Vineyard Kitchen make sure you cross the car park to Pātaka - a gourmet food store proudly specialising in New Zealand artisan food and offering uniquely New Zealand inspired gifts.

Very welcoming staff, providing lots of experience and wines to sample, while expertly detailing the wine. Not rushed, just a good pace. Worth a visit.

We arrived on bikes and, like all the wineries in the region, they were well used to sweaty bods turning up wanting to sample some wine and to be fed. However, what we were not used to was the standard of the food. Wow. What a fantastic find! We kicked off with a tasting. We sampled a good few wines,... More

What a great place to visit, we already knew of Saint Clair wines so it was great to be able to go to the home of 'Pioneer Block' and sample some wines we knew as well as those that we were not aware of. Our sommelier was passionate about the wine and 'knew his stuff'. Thank you for a great... More

Went for lunch as two other places we went to were poked out on a sunny Sunday. There were plenty of spare tables. The menu was a bit limited for vegetarian and prices were up there with dinner prices. Approx $25 average. Not any options for a light lunch so we ordered the fish and a starter of bread a... More

Excellent service with delicious food and wine. Absolutely recommend the chicken breast and pasta. Can't wait to return for some more Sauvingnon Blanc and to try the rest of the dessert menu.

Oh Dear Looked forward to this cellar door as we have always enjoyed the wines. However the wine tasting was so disappointing, staff disinterested, no enthusiasm for what they were selling, no explanation of the wines they were pouring, just poured each one from the list and put it down in front of us. And on top of that we... More

The Saint Clair vineyard is very close to the Pataka Foodstore and Makana Confections Chocolate Factory. I decided to sample the wines of the day there and was impressed with the charge being $3 for 3 wine tastes or $5 for 6 wine tastes. However, the barman was too busy serving other people and didn't really take much notice of... More
