Come and visit Saint Clair Family Estate Vineyard Kitchen to relax, sit back and enjoy the Saint Clair experience. The newly renovated establishment is situated within a unique vineyard setting with views extending past the vines towards the ever changing and dramatic Richmond Range. The sunny courtyard offers outdoor dining with some dining options amongst the vines. On a cooler day an extended veranda section can ensure customers continue to have the vineyard feel while being sheltered from the elements through extensive floor to ceiling glass sliding doors. A cosy fire provides ambience and warmth during the New Zealand winter, an ideal settling to relax and enjoy Saint Clair's award winning wines. A perfect place for a visit for morning or afternoon tea with a selection of muffins and hot drinks available all day. The extensive menu constantly changes reflecting some of the best seasonal produce and finest delicacies Marlborough as to offer. There are a range of options available to meet any dietary requirements. The wine tasting counter is an area to discover the diversity of Saint Clair with a large selection of award winning wines available for tasting daily via an impressive wine preservation system. In addition to these wines there is an extensive range of craft beers from kiwi breweries including Pan Head, Parrot Dog and Marlborough's own Renaissance. A couple of different flavours of locally produced Adam and Eve Cider are also on offer and New Zealand owned brands make up the eclectic array of non-alcoholic beverages. The Saint Clair Vineyard Kitchen is available for private functions and offers catering options to suit all budgets with flexibility to ensure a successful event. Please contact us to discuss further.

We had a great Ruby wedding anniversary lunch at St Clair today. Food, wine and service absolutely first class. Would love the recipe for the braised beef and bacon, best I have ever had - please keep on the menu forever.

Staff offered a vegan meal when nothing on their menu was suitable. The meal was fantastic and much appreciated. I will definitely return.

We enjoyed a fantastic wine tasting with a very knowledgeable host who was happy to share stories about the wine and family with us, all very interesting. We then enjoyed a wonderful lunch looking out to the vines, the food was delicious and the perfect size for lunch. We will definitely be back next time.

This wonderful restaurant has two listings, shame as they need to be combined to give a better understanding of how great it is.

We had family visiting from Canterbury and decided a Sunday lunch would be a good idea. St Clair was wonderful. A great menu, although a selection for entree would be good. Our mains were all delicious and the recommended wine was beautiful. Dessert was a real treat. We all had beautiful meals and good value for money. We will be... More

We arrived cold and wet after walking from our accommodation to St Clair's and were greeted with a warm fire, friendly service and the best wine we had in the region. The meals were perfectly presented and wine matches excellent. We stayed 4 hours wining and dining. St Clair's was one of the highlights of our trip

We make an annual midwinter trip to Blenheim with another couple and each year we chose a different vineyard for what we hope will be a truly delicious 3 course lunch (plus local wine of course). By choosing St Clair we were not disappointed. The menu was varied (although the only entree is bread and dip/olive oil/olives) and we could... More

You get a great sense of the fun family behind the estate with quirky Saint Clair estate trivia etched into pieces of furniture and fixtures. Our lovely guide in Saint Clair wines was a very warm and welcoming German lady who educated us on the great range as we awaited our DELICIOUS lunch...my new husband had the chorizo pasta, myself...
