“Really nice location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Really nice location. We couldn’t sit outside as it was too windy but the indoor seating was very pleasant and not noisy. The food was OK, but nothing exceptional. Will go back and try again when in the area.

“Absoutely awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

If I could rate a 6 for awesome I would have. This is a lovely secret in Richmond foothills. Lovely setting, fresh beautiful foods. I really enjoyed the wine tasting with 4 wines for $9. Accompanied by the mini platter with lovely breads and their own olive oil. The meals were fresh and well presented. Priced about right and excellent service. This is the best local winery/cafe I have been to and i will definitely be going again. Unfortunately it is open for summer only and closes at Easter weekend for the grape harvest. A wonderful place and it was so nice sitting out over the water with the water lillies and lovely trees. Couldnt fault anything.

“Fab Fossil Fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

We found one of the best little boutique wineries and restaurant/cafe on the outskirts of Richmond, Nelson. Fossil Ridge Winery has award winning wines, and fresh tasty cuisine at its summer-only restaurant. The landscaped surroundings - ponds, decks and vineyard - are a fantastic backdrop to the food and wine experience. We did a tasting to choose the wine we each wanted with our lunch. The service was excellent, and our party of four were all impressed by the indoor/outdoor environment and the quality of the food. It's so handy to Nelson City too. We love the wines. Well worth more than just a look.
