We stopped at Rock Ferry for lunch today. Highly recommend. Excellent food with great suggestions for wine from their cellars. The lemon tart for dessert was perfect.

We didn’t eat here but enjoyed a wine tasting and the expert commentary from the guy there. Was the first of a number of winery visits that day, but was one of the best.

Popped in for lunch and a wine tasting on our way back to Wellington. Great food, especially the chicken with risotto and the steak sandwich. Wines were very very good too especially the Chardonnay and the aged Sauvignon Blanc. Thoroughly recommend it

Our philosophy is to make real wines which speak of their home; to express the pure distinct flavours from our organic estate vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago. It's the way we live. We welcome you to visit our team and taste our wines at our cellar door and restaurant in Marlborough. Based around seasonally inspired cooking and our range of organically grown wines, the cellar door and restaurant is a great showcase for the honest, down-to-earth produce that New Zealand's South Island is justifiably famous for. We look forward to seeing you soon
