Set inside Waimea Estates stunning vineyard, we are the closest winery/restaurant to the popular Richmond town center just a 5 mins away. Our our food is fresh and vibrant, changing with the seasons and showcasing local flavours. We use only free range meats & sustainable seafoods & support local growers and producers. The Nelson region has some of the best seafood, vegetables, cheese makers and olive oils in the country. We cater to everybody with gluten free, dairy free, vegan & healthy options available. All of our menus are expertly matched with Waimea Estates award winning wine range for the ultimate taste sensations! DUE TO A LARGE FIRE AT THE CAFE WE HAVE RELOCATED JUST DOWN THE ROAD TO 107 APPLEBY HIGHWAY, HOPE, TASMAN. WE ARE STILL DOING THE SAME FOOD AND OF COURSE WINE TASTINGS AND SALES. SEE YOU THERE!
