Smaller eco estate, aiming to get the biodynamic label too. It was just the two of us, but the hostess was very friendly and told us a lot about the winery. I can recommend the Tory, a wonderful blend of three grapes.

Small personal experiences are why we love places like Te Whau Ra. Our host was great and the wines were very good. Marlborough can be a little commercial so it's nice to find small places like this to do a tasting.

We visited Te Whare Ra as part of our tour of the region with Wine Tour By Bike. The wines were amazing and Anna was extremely friendly and informative. The Reisling D and the Toru were amazing. Make sure you visit.
