Rock Ferry was recommended by our host and our experience was fabulous. The wine tasting was lovely and that enabled us to choose a wine for lunch. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. The best meal we had in Blenheim!

This was a nice enough winery (and casual restaurant) but although it is not one of the more glitzy places can find in the region it is a pleasant place to visit with good wines. The restaurant was not sampled.

Chose Rock Ferry for my wife's birthday lunch. First visit so was hoping it would be good. It was great! Settings in the garden, fabulous staff and 5* presentation of dishes made for a great occasion. We will definitely return.

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
