Went for a wine tasting. It was somewhat hurried although there was a good range of wines. Went back to the restaurant the following day. The menu selection was quite limiting and the service was poor. We gave it 6.5/10.More

Nice wine tasting, followed by lunch. Great choice of food, though the seafood carbonara style dish was a little lighter than I thought it could be.

Description
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.
