We travelled from Auckland on a family holiday and Church Road Winery was on our not to miss list. A great day at the winery with amazing food and drink. The service was excellent and the kitchen was very helpful to meet a dietary need. Topped the day off with a guided tour and tasting. Highly recommend a visit.

Church Rd we totally enjoyed our lunch on Mothers Day! The food and service was totally awesome. Love the setting and i was so pleased you seated us on a long table rather than the large round table as i found once before it was a little hard to hear on the round table. But everything was perfect this time! Huge thanks!

The service was spectacular, and we felt very looked after. The food was delicious! The pairing of the Chardonnay with the Platter for Two worked wonders, and overall the experience was extremely enjoyable. We hope to visit again one day! Thank you.

My wife and I had the lamb and the beef mains. We each ate half and then switched plates. What we really liked was the lamb, the sauerkraut fritter, and the sauces in each dish. We both wished for more of a sear on the beef. My wife had asked for medium rare. It was a bit on the medium side. None of these negative criticisms were very serious. We ordered a bottle of the MacDonald Cabernet Sauvignon. We chose the wine after speaking with one of the sommeliers.

The lunch dishes were amazing. Food took awhile to be served - we were starting to get slightly irritated but when the food arrived, we all thought it was worth the wait. Delish.
