My friend and I basically hiked from Obsidian (it was closed) to Te Motu and were disappointed in the inattentive staff (they may have been understaffed). The wine was good but seemed a bit too pricey.

This former goat farm was the epitome of a winery within the vines. The bouquet of reds were amazing and the tasting abundant! This was a vineyard included in a wine tour and it was quite charming.
