We were able to walk to this winery from our B&B and had a great time interacting with Thelma. She explained each wine she poured and made the whole experience lots of fun - and of course we bought some wine.

We had an excellent wine tasting and two fantastic pizzas and the platter between six. Patrick talked us through the wines. We will definitely return when next up this way!

Rimu Grove winery has just opened in Shed4 on Mapua Wharf. A great write up in the local paper saw us go there on Saturday 2 January. Wine tasting and light lunch attracted us to take our overseas visitors. We asked what could be tasted and was told everything. The young woman behind the counter was totally unhelpful as to...

Dear Gumtree - my sincere apologies. A family emergency left us short-staffed and with the throngs of people, we were overwhelmed. I encourage you to visit again so that we can show you a sample of the great wines Nelson has to offer. Regards, Patrick More

Visited on a quiet afternoon, sat on the deck and tasted the wines, while admiring the view. Our host knew her wines and was delightful. Had to take some with me!

Visited on a sunny afternoon on an impromptu DIY winery tour through Nelson. Was great to sit on the sunny deck and listen to the quirky stories behind each wine. The wines themselves were delicious. Definitely worth a visit!

Our host Theresa has been involved with the vineyard for a very long time, and was an expert on the wines and food matches, she was happy to explain the best way to cook scallops (in a little butter then add a glass of chardonnay and poach for a couple of minutes), make sure you drink a glass as well....

The Rimu Grove winery was the highlight for us on a tour of 5 in the Nelson region. Fantastic views are only bettered by the excellent wines, and the friendly and knowledgable patter of Thelma at the cellar door. Enjoyed a beautiful tasting and went away with a couple of great bottles.

This winery is in a beautiful setting and the lady who helped us with the tastings was friendly knowledgable and witty. She was generous with the tastings and we enjoyed the bottles we took home. Well worth a visit.

Really lovely wines, unfortunately however the beautiful view and wine was ruined by the very rude guy with dreads that clearly didn't like his job that day. We found him very unprofessional and did not interact with us at all. In fact if he had it his way would of just carried on playing on his ipod. We had a... More

Rimu Grove Winery is a boutique Nelson winery focused producing small quantities of hand-crafted, very high quality, wines. They produce outstanding wines that remind us of why wine can be such a pleasure. Their Pinot Noir is a true joy. In fact, after tasting the Rimu Grove wine I literally had to throw out the bottle of Australian Shiraz I... More
