    What a relaxing afternoon we had sampling many local wines and enjoying the cheese platter. The atmosphere is great and staff offer information on the wines. There is no pressure to drink up quickly. Have found some great vines to look out for back in Christchurch.

    Really enjoyed this experience, the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, the decor and music is relaxing and clean. There is clear description about the wine. My son wasnt too keen about this activity by the end he found a wine that he enjoyed so this activity can help you find a nice wine and taste many different ones along the way. I would recommend if you are curious about wine or want somewhere to sit and enjoy a wine with a cheese board and nice company.
