Marsden Estate Winery and Restaurant
Marsden Estate Winery and Restaurant Review
Named after the missionary Samuel Marsden, who planted New Zealand's first grapevines in Kerikeri in 1819, this winery is a popular lunch spot and for good reason. On a fine day ask for a table on the terrace. The seasonal menu is eclectic and is built around fresh seasonal produce. It is a great place for breakfast with vegan and gluten-free options available. Of the winery's small but notable output, the full-bodied Black Rocks Chardonnay has won national and international awards and the 2007 Pinot Gris is worth a try. All grapes are handpicked and grown on-site with the exception of the Viognier, which comes from a vineyard 90 minutes south and the Sauvignon Blanc, which is from Marlborough in the South Island. The winery is open for tastings.
