The wine tasting paddle (5 wines for $15) was a great way to sample wines from 2 vineyards (although a little expensive), but the Queensberry Platter was a brilliant feast of NZ cheeses, cured meats, olives, pickles, chutneys, focaccia breads and crackers. Well worth the...More

Passing by and called in on a whim. Although without a reservation, we were given a table on the verandah overlooking the gardens and surrounding farms. Meals were tasty and well presented. Good range of wines and beers also available.

It is worth the effort to get down the drive to have a tasting and lunch when the sun is shining. The lunch menu is great for matching local Queensberry wines with good food, great service and friendly conversation. The tasting at $15 gives you...More
