Stayed one night as part of Maui Camper Van package. This included wine tasting first, when we selected a bottle for drinking with the hamper of food provided. We were advised we could select any extra salad we required from their vegetable garden to top up the hamper food. The food was excellent, particularly the selection of salads provided.The site...

We were booked in for lunch with a group of friends attending a reunion weekend in Cromwell. It was a pleasant sunny day and a table was set up for us outside. The surroundings were lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. But alas, the lunch was very disappointing. We had pre-ordered platters for 16 of us to share.... More

A little less known than Mt Difficulty over the road, Carrick is a hidden gem! The view is georgous, the wine is my absolute favourite Pinot Gris and Rose, and our food and service was perfect.

We did a tasting and had lunch here. Wine was very good and food was even better. We walked away with a few bottles.

Took a drive from Wanaka to the wineries and stop at Carrick Winery for lunch, excellent location and very good food and of course wine, very pleasant on a sunny day sitting outdoors and admiring the vineyards and lake.

Wide views from the restaurant out over the valley. However too windy to be outside the day we went which was unfortunate. Food was very nice as was the wine. The Pinot Noir was very smooth and greatly enjoyed.

A lovely place to take in the stunning views alas to be told that the kitchen was closed before even asking us if we intended to eat,was slightly off putting but other than that the waiter who attended to us was charming .
