Fodor's Review

On a working farm nestled beneath the Ruahine Ranges, 30 minutes from Palmerston North, this young winery (first vintage 2004) and olive grove is the only vineyard in the delightful Pohangina Valley. It's unpretentious, even though its wines have already collected coveted Bragato awards, among others. You can mingle with the chooks and dogs as you sip and chat with the owners, sisters Fiona and Bronwyn, about the hands-on work of running a wine business.
