Smaller eco estate, aiming to get the biodynamic label too. It was just the two of us, but the hostess was very friendly and told us a lot about the winery. I can recommend the Tory, a wonderful blend of three grapes.

Hey Tim, So glad you enjoyed your visit. We really enjoy sharing our wines and our enthusiasm for what we do and we love showing visitors a different side to Marlborough than the more mass produced version. Cheers, Anna

Small personal experiences are why we love places like Te Whau Ra. Our host was great and the wines were very good. Marlborough can be a little commercial so it's nice to find small places like this to do a tasting.

We visited Te Whare Ra as part of our tour of the region with Wine Tour By Bike. The wines were amazing and Anna was extremely friendly and informative. The Reisling D and the Toru were amazing. Make sure you visit.

thanks for the kind words and for being so understanding. As you were aware we are a very small team and once harvest starts we have to close for tastings as it is all hands on deck
