Our final stop on our wine tour of the Marlborough region which didn't disappoint. A lovely boutique winery with an intimate and friendly atmosphere. All the wines sampled were great - in particular the Pinot Blanc. You can't find Rock Ferry wine in a lot...More

We found this vineyard almost by accident as we were taking a shortcut around Blenheim heading up to the Picton ferry. We decided to stop for a wine tasting and were not disappointed. We especially enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc, but they were all very good.

If you are dining in, then there is a complimentary wine tasting which was fantastic. The staff were wonderful. Beautiful setting and it was very busy. Definately need to book in ahead. Food was very good, presented nicely.
