We took a french couple here hearing that they produced great wines and that the vineyard practised organic and permaculture methods. We walked inside to be greeted by the rancid smell of cat faeces. The first face we saw was a Chinese lady who looked...More

Many Martinborough vineyards charge around $5 for their wine-tasting - either refundable upon purchase, or not. That seems quite fair. Vynfields wanted to charge $18 per person to taste their 5 wines and we weren't at all convinced we were going to get a coherent,...More

Although the vineyard setting is beautiful and you have a choice of different ways to taste their wine there's a lack of love shown towards it. We chose the five large glasses to share between three of us and that was enough. The wine were...More

What a great place! The historic building looks absolutely amazing and the view from the garden is great. Best place to enjoy some wine, best way is the selection of the five best organic wines they offer. We also had bread and olives to share....More

I think Vynfields have had a couple of unfair reviews lately. Firstly most vineyards are charging tastings around Martinborough so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Vynfields are also charging for their tastings too. However, they do give a range of prices for their...More

Used to be a great place to visit for tastings and hospitality, what has gone wrong guys ?. Haven't you heard of no charge for tasting if you spend over &$200 on wine. This place is dead in the water compared to the rest of...More

We enjoyed our 5 organic wines in the tasting-the sparkling Riesling & classic Rieslings, being complex but relatively dry, suited us best. Came with tasting notes too. We had 2 'small' platters between the 2 of us-a cheese one which also came with fresh figs,...More

Beautiful setting. Sat nibbling platters and drinking a crisp bubbles late afternoon in relaxing surrounds, table outside in the sun. Attentive service. We're used to various vineyard dogs coming out to welcome us, but in this case we got a cat bounding out and keeping...More

Beautiful spot. Enjoyed the wine and friendly man who served us. The wine was well priced. The cheese platter was expensive for what you got ( we got the large). It was tasty and filling but could have been more gourmet as advertised.
