Mills Reef Winery Review

Owner–winemaker Paddy Preston of Mills Reef Winery used to make kiwifruit wine, but he hasn't looked back since he turned to the real thing. The lovely 20-acre complex includes the art-deco style Tasting Room and Restaurant. Alfresco dining is popular at the restaurant, which promises (and delivers) a menu of "Antipodean/Pacific Rim food blending the best of local produce and culinary innovations," matched of course with classy Mills Reef wines. It's open daily for brunch and lunch, reservations essential for dinner. The cellar door/tasting room is open daily 9 to 5.
