Stopped off for lunch. Decided to go with the bread platter, small plates and a shared dessert given it was a mid day meal. Fantastic food and the venue on the hillside looking back towards Blenheim and the hills was almost like being in Tuscany or Aix en Provence

This was our first visit this summer although we had seen this menu before.

As usual the staff make one feel very welcome, they are attentive without being overbearing. Nice mix of customers with young couples with babies through to elderly people using the ramp from the car park as opposed to steps.

Beautiful Marlborough day so we opted for an outside table.

We selected the breads to share and the duck (locally sourced) along with the potatoes cooked in duck fact (exquisite).

With a local recommended Chardonnay.

Superb meal.

We bought an additional 2 bottles of their latest release Rose. I would recommend a set of tasting glasses (3) of their latest vintages.

A wonderful Sunday lunch.

We had been drinking Wither Hills wines for a couple of weeks as we traveled the North Island, so, upon arriving in Blenheim, nothing would do but to have lunch at their winery. The cellar door and restaurant are magnificent, sitting up on the east side of the valley. We thought we would do a tasting and then have lunch, but the gent who welcomed us suggested we order a flight of wines with lunch instead. Seated in their handsome dining room with a window view, we perused the wines and with our server's help, settled on our flights....then to the food. I have to admit, everything on the menu was tempting, and after much discussion and several questions, hubby and I settled on the Pumpkin, Feta & Bacon salad to share and the Seafood Cannelloni with Soft Shell Crab for him, and Lamb Tenderloin with Feta, Olives and Buckwheat for me.

The beautiful salad arrived, perfect as a starter for two. All of the food here is beautifully presented, and the flavors have great depth to them. Hubby was thrilled with his cannelloni and soft shell crab (yuch to me), and I loved my lamb and grains. It was fun to taste each of our 3 wines with the food, and service was attentive, but not smothering. A thoroughly great experience.

Stopped off here on the way to the Picton Ferry. The winery, building, service, people and food were all top notch. Best meal we had in NZ. Was totally amazing. The prices were very reasonable compared to the rest of NZ also. Do yourself a favour.

We all enjoyed the lunch dishes we ordered. Nice setting with plenty of outside areas if the day is nice. Enjoyed the rose too.
