Marsden Estate is one of the best winery lunches in NZ, and has been for many years. Food is always good, and the setting is to die for - glorious views over the vines and grounds, with a beautiful lake and waterfowl. It's a family...More

The winery setting, makes for a relaxed feel, the wine tasting added to the ambiance. Lunch was served on the patio overlooking the pond and grapes beyond. My seared tuna salad was so satisfying that I had no need for dessert.

After a minor hiccup start (they hadn't written our booking down in the reservation book) the lunch was delicious. We tasted a range of wines before deciding which one to accompany lunch - both the wine and the food were both excellent.

Nearly two centuries ago, the first grapevines were planted at Kerikeri That was the work of Samuel Marsden, the driving force behind the establishment of Anglican mission stations in New Zealand. Nearly two decades ago, Rod and Cindy MacIvor followed in his footsteps with the establishment of the vineyard and wine estate they named after him. Marsden Estate is youthful by comparison, but the vineyard, the gardens and the estate building look well settled into the sub-tropical landscape of New Zealand’s Far North. Just a few minutes’ drive from Kerikeri village, Marsden Estate offers wine sales, tastings and tours, with innovative cuisine to complement its award winning wines. It’s known for the relaxed atmosphere of its courtyard dining space overlooking the lake and vines, with innovative cuisine that showcases the unique flavours of the region.
