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

We stopped for lunch after ringing up to book a table, we sat outside with our dog as we’d read Rockferry is dog friendly and they definitely were! They made us feel so welcome and provided water for our dog and lots of pats haha....More

We had lunch at Rock Ferry after a lovely wine tasting. The food was delicious - our open steak sandwich and our tarakihi was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. It was quite reasonably priced too.....

Rockferry Wines is owned by husband and wife team Tom and Fiona, proud producers of world-class certified organic wines, made right here in New Zealand. 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
