We decided very last minute to do a one night getaway to wine country to cycle to the wineries and visit experience the Pelorus Mail Boat - we came without Reservations figuring that getting a winter room would not be too hard. The first Winery we went to recommended this place and I am so glad they did. The hosts are so nice and you can use their bikes if you stay their (we had brought our own) We stayed in a king bed room very spacious with a small patio outside of our room, and a bright bathroom. The beds were so comfortable we were asleep before we had a chance to use the hot tub. They provide a wonderful breakfast of yogurt, frutis, homemade jams and great coffee. Nice way to start the day. We will be back

The Gardens are stunning and the cellar door beautiful.
Very welcoming and friendly staff who offered far more wines for tasting than on the list for the day - complimentary as well. Tasting tailored to our wine preferences which was a very nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to have our purchases shipped straight home.

This was another vineyard that our hotel and a number of websites recommended. When I asked about ordering food, the lady told me they really didn’t have anthing except some cheeses to go with wine. A menu listed other items, but she clearly didn’t seem interested in whether we stayed or not so we left.

A small private vineyard with tasting available. Their small batch wines have excellent critical reception, and after trying a few, many from our group purchased bottles. Easy access from biking trail. Owners are very friendly and provide great information and commentary about their wine. This was my favorite of the wineries we visited.

Dog Point Vineyard

Specialist wine producers since 2002, Dog Point insists on low cropped vines and hand-picked fruit whilst adhering to an organic regime. Their philosophy is to produce regionally distinctive wines that will drink well now and age gracefully for many years. Four wines are produced at Dog Point: - A typical Marlborough style of Sauvignon Blanc - Section 94, a Sauvignon Blanc aged and fermented in barrel - A Chardonnay - A Pinot Noir Vineyard tours and tastings are welcome by appointment only.

Reviewed By JimdagOG - San Diego, California

By appointment only, but if you're serious about sampling quality Marlborough wines, Dog Point has to be on your short list. This is a sit-down tasting with the winemaker who will offer a limited (four) sampling but will take the time to discuss winemaking variables and decision making that determines the unique characteristics of each bottling (e.g., wild yeast, pre-phylloxera Mendoza vines, and barrel aging versus steel fermentation). Very rewarding but not a visit for wine novices.
