This is one of those serendipity stories. Young American travelling back to Nelson grinds farmer uprooting Apple tress. Falls in love with the place, arranges finance, works ground at weekends and finally makes wine. We loved several of them but in particular the Pinot noir

The lady owner here was excellent. The seeing of the vineyard and the views across the vines to the inlet were stunning. A very informative tasting which led to purchase of their delightful Rose. We have not been to rimu bar down at water front.

We were able to walk to this winery from our B&B and had a great time interacting with Thelma. She explained each wine she poured and made the whole experience lots of fun - and of course we bought some wine.

Dear Gumtree - my sincere apologies. A family emergency left us short-staffed and with the throngs of people, we were overwhelmed. I encourage you to visit again so that we can show you a sample of the great wines Nelson has to offer. Regards, Patrick
