Stopped for lunch while on a bike tour of Martinborough wineries. It was busy and raining so tables were limited as we couldn't sit outside. We sat at a table just inside the door, across from the kitchen, and outside the main dining room. It...More

Well the sun was shining and the setting was splendid. Our anniversary lunch went down a treat. This is a better way to do wine tasting - relaxed, with food and ample sufficiency! A highly recommended way to experience Martinborough.

This vineyard is situated a coupple of km outside the small Town of Martinborough. Still Walking or cycling distance. The wine is superb and the wine tasting is very good. If you should buy any wine in Matrinborough, this is one of top five.

The restaurant here is separate from the cellar. My advice is not to bother with the cellar door tasting but go straight to the cafe where you can buy a flight of 5 wines to enjoy with your meal. Very attentive service, excellent food and...More
