It took us a while to find the vineyard but the drive through the wonderful countryside is well worth it.
The ambiance is a little dated or perhaps it needs a little TLC. The food was very good and the service and welcome was very friendly. We had a very relaxing afternoon and especially enjoyed our long chat with the chef and completion of service.

Woke to a beautiful day so decided to go for lunch at a winery. Moutere Hills is in a lovely secluded spot well away from the highway. Had not been here since the change of owners so was keen to see and taste the changes. Good selection on the menu although I would have liked to see an antipasto selection. Wine list is restricted to their own as one would expect. Ordered the Pinot gris which was pleasant but a little like a chardonnay. My wife ordered cannelloni and I had the stuffed mushrooms. Both were very tasty and with the included sides more than enough for lunch. The french fries were great but I was disappointed to learn that they are available in supermarkets and not home made. Only downside was the length of time from ordering to being served which was 40 minutes. Not sure how they will cope with a big crowd when summer comes around. Still well worth the money.

A lovely place to relax and enjoy wonderful food, exceptional wine, and the service is first class. We had a tour around the vineyard and winery, seeing where the wine is made was very interesting!

Had lunch here yesterday in a group of 8. Food was excellent. Beef Wellington was delicious. Pasta of the day declared exquisite. Even the fries were voted to be the best in Nelson. Wine was very good. The churros were a hit.

The outside, enclosed balcony was warm with a lovely view over the garden, pond & vineyard.

Well done Rusty & Lisa! We'll have to come out & experience your Friday night bar next.
