We were here as part of a small group day trip visiting 5 wineries. All were very good, but in our opinion the overall quality of the wines at Hunter's were the best on the day. Apart from the pleasure of tasting the wines, the tasting was done in an idyllic location, and the service of the staff was both personal and professional. Highly recommended.

We had a great experience stopping in at Hunters for a wine tasting on our wine tour on bikes! The tasting was really good value for money, getting to try 8 different wines. We were served by a really lovely lady, who was so friendly and knowledgeable about the wines. We were sat in a lovely garden
Went home with a bottle of the delicious Reisling

We arrived on Wednesday, 16 November around mid-morning. We didn't see the black on black sign saying that the cellar was closed. We entered the building and the staff were so rude. Apparently the cellar and restaurant were closed for a private function. We were treated as persona non grata. They reluctantly sold me a bottle of Riesling after I explained it was a gift for a friend and we wouldn't be able to return as it was the last day of our trip. Disappointed and definitely won't recommend.

We popped into Hunter Wine for a tasting at about 3.20pm knowing they close at 4.00pm.
We were greeted in a most friendly way and invited out to the garden to sit and enjoy the surroundings and a tasting. The lady taking care of us (and please accept our apologies for not remembering your name) was a delight, so friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We were so impressed with her.
There is a great variety of wines to taste and whilst we were not necessarily looking to buy we ended up purchasing 12 bottles of different types. They even arrange shipping for only $8.
This is an unpretentious winery clearly operated with love and we highly recommend a visit.

Whilst right on the "main" road it was a peaceful place in a lovely building. Great setting and knowledgeable staff who were engaging and insightful about not only the wines but the history. The wines was delicious, so much so it made a dent in the bank account!

Our group of 11 arrived out of the blue on a Saturday morning, we received a very friendly greeting and were seated out on the terrace. Wine tastings followed, accompanied by information about the wines and a brief history of the winery. Thanks so much for our warm welcome, the wines were delicious and several bottles were purchased. We definitely hope to be back.

Spent a nice few hours in the sun here for lunch a few weeks back. The garden is delightful, a real credit to them. The friendly service was warm and welcoming and the tasting plates were delish. Way more choice than I thought would be on offer - everything from a bowl of olives to a specialty pie. We did a wine tasting which was great - the lovely lady brought each bottle out to us to pour and educate us about meaning we could sit and relax in that gorgeous garden! Lovely way to unwind at the weekend for sure.

This was our FAVORITE stop we made along our wine trail in Marlborough. The wine here is so good and the service even better! They are so funny and personable. I think we ended up buying 6 bottles here. I especially liked the riesling, late harvest sauvignon blanc, late harvest riesling and MiruMiru NZ. The vines outside are also super cool and have a neat history.

We were made welcome when visiting for wine tastings. Great selection of tastings and each wine tried was explained in detail of its history etc.
