We are open everyday for complimentary wine tastings.Turn down Conders Bend Road from State Highway 6 between the Wairau River Bridge and Renwick to taste Framingham wines at their source. Just 10 minutes’ drive from Blenheim on the main road to Nelson, we’re open everyday from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Relax in the deco-style wooden panelled tasting room, or enjoy the sunshine and roses in our sheltered courtyard. Let us give you an insight into how our wines are crafted to make the most of the Wairau Valley climate as you savour our diverse range.

The wine tasting at Framingham is wonderful. Hopefully you will get Rose or her equally qualified and delightful assistant to serve you the delicious wines their vines produce. We were pleasantly surprised by the welcome we received at the tasting bar.. You see, most of the wineries in the region charge for tasting their wares, but Framingham does not and... More

The staff is something fantastic! We loved to talk with them and they helped us with some tips on our trip! We tasted some really good wines. For me the best one was the Riesling desert wine. I even bought a bottle of it! Lovely and cosy cellar! It definitely worths a visit!

Very enjoyable wines in Renwick - the width of the range surprised us and the knowledge and guidance of the lady ( moved down from the North Island) was fantastic helping us understand and increase our knowledge of the wines and area. Well worth it!

We came in for our first NZ wine tasting and was greeting by the lovely Mary Jo- she was friendly, knowledgeable and so kind. We loved the wines as well as the conversation. Worth a visit to this beautiful winery!! :):)

Dropped in for a tasting...wines were very nice but the highlight was Maureen (previously noted by others). Very knowledgeable, totally unpretentious, very engaged. We did a full tasting, then she showed us down through the cellar and gave us the story of the boys in the band. Highly recommend this one.

I recently visited Framingham Wines with a group of girlfriends (we were riding bikes around the vineyards - highly recommend this too). We were most impressed with the level of service we received. Firstly, we were warmly greeted by Sue who went on to do an amazing job of show casing all that Framingham had to offer for tasting .... More

We went on a wine tour and visited about 7 different wineries. This was by far our favourite winery. Every wine we brought home was absolutely delicious - especially the Rieslings. Highly recommend.

Nice enough wines but neither the professional flair of large places nor the intimate ownership of Gibson Bridge

We visited Framigham wines in early August as a part of our day wine tour. Maureen was very knowledgeable and patient with my many questions, I'm sure she must have heard them all before! We enjoyed all the wines we tried, and can certainly recommend Framingham as a part of your tour!
