What a pleasant surprise this winery was, with its tiny tasting room, hand made wines and expert and friendly staff, not to mention some of the best wines in the region! You must visit this winery while in the Marlborough.

Bladen Wines is nestled in on Conders Bend Road in Renwick, just on the outskirts of Blenheim. Lovely award winning wines, great hospitality, friendly & knowledgable team & open cellar door most days. You can arrive via car, mini van if there's a crowd of you or hire a bike. Take your credit card. You won't want to leave empty... More

Superb overall tasting experience. Extremely welcoming host who showcased a good range of his wines in a relaxed and informative manner. We spent more than an hour chatting about a whole range of things, which culminated in sending a half case home, such was the excellent quality of what we tasted. No shipping charge to U.K. addresses. Highly recommend.

This was by far the best vineyard we visited during our cycle trip. It's a small family run business and the people there are very passionate and knowledgable. All the wines were delicious, we could have spent the whole day there.

A small family owned and run winery. We had a great time chatting with the owner, tasting his handcrafted wine. The wine was superb! A very relaxing and enjoyable experience indeed. If you're not a fan of large winery, Bladen is your top choice.

We were taken to Bladen on the recommendation from Dave our fantastic guide from Highlight's wine tours and it turned out to be our favourite winery of the day. A small family run winery with beautiful wines. We had a great tasting session with Dave the owner who has passionate and genuine and it was just simply delightful.

This was the last vineyard I visited, a family run establishment, I was made to feel very welcome, the wine was superb, this is a small vineyard and has a pleasant nice touch, the owners started by planting all the vines by hand, blood, sweat, tears and a lot of hard work has gone into producing this outstanding vineyard with...

This is a small boutique family owned winery and was the smallest of the wineries we visited in the district. I wasn't a huge fan of the wines but that's what its all about right? Very relaxed and pretty setting. Well worth the stop.

This is possibly the smallest cellar door we visited on our entire trip. We tasted some great tasting wines and we can even get them back in the UK. Worth looking out for.
