We stopped in here for a wine tasting on a stinking hot day. Their cellar door was wonderfully cool and welcoming and offered tastings of a bunch of excellent wines. I was hard pressed to choose a favourite. Additionally, Kate was informative and professional.

I am very disappointed with the lack of service at Margrain. I will never be returning here and will recommend to all my friends and family that they do not come here also. Be aware, the worst service we’ve had in Martinborough. Congratulations!
