I think Vynfields have had a couple of unfair reviews lately. Firstly most vineyards are charging tastings around Martinborough so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Vynfields are also charging for their tastings too. However, they do give a range of prices for their tastings as you can choose to have a full, 1/2 or 1/4 size glass tastings... More

there is a big bit of steel in their driveway, put hole in our oil sump. When l phoned & told them what had happened all they were concerned about was if we were in the way. When l asked if they could help us sort something out they just hang up, they didn't even bother to come & see... More

Used to be a great place to visit for tastings and hospitality, what has gone wrong guys ?. Haven't you heard of no charge for tasting if you spend over &$200 on wine. This place is dead in the water compared to the rest of the vineyards in Martinbourgh. We know and love wine, will we be back not a... More

We enjoyed our 5 organic wines in the tasting-the sparkling Riesling & classic Rieslings, being complex but relatively dry, suited us best. Came with tasting notes too. We had 2 'small' platters between the 2 of us-a cheese one which also came with fresh figs, 2 types of nuts, quince paste & relish and a wild mushroom French terrine one... More

Beautiful setting. Sat nibbling platters and drinking a crisp bubbles late afternoon in relaxing surrounds, table outside in the sun. Attentive service. We're used to various vineyard dogs coming out to welcome us, but in this case we got a cat bounding out and keeping us company!

Beautiful spot. Enjoyed the wine and friendly man who served us. The wine was well priced. The cheese platter was expensive for what you got ( we got the large). It was tasty and filling but could have been more gourmet as advertised.

What a dissapointment. When walking onto the property, hopes and expectations are set. One walks thru the vinyards, where a beaitifull property is set. Unfortunately inside you are assisted by somebody who has no clue about wines whatsoever. he does know how to ring the register though... A wine-tasting platter is served in a weird way, not in the right... More

We visited this place a year or so ago and it was packed, well organised and well presented. This time it was deserted and the gardens overgrown and untended. We still gave it a try, having driven a reasonable distance to be there. We tried to order a couple of dishes from the menu but the server talked us out... More

We'd been to Vynfields 3 or 4 years ago and remembered it as being packed to the gills, standing room only, with the feel of a well organised tearoom. We half expected China teacups and cucumber sandwiches. How different this time. The place was deserted, and we could soon see why. The wine tasters seemed watered down, and not in... More

Obviously this is on the route when your here for toast. Stopped off here last and it was definitely glad we saved it for last. Had the best wine and food was delicious. I prefer this to a lot of vineyards in the area.
