A real great meal and their own wines very nicely matched in a great setting.
Service was very good and menu simple but adequate.
Food very tasty with ample salads.

This vineyard cafe near Nelson is only open in the summer months (up to end of March). It is the prettiest vineyard I have ever eaten at (I I have been to nay here and overseas) and the food, service and wine are terrific too. You need to book to be sure you can get in. The menu for lunch is not extensive but it is fresh , delicious and excellent value for money.

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.

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.

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.
