This 11.5 h vineyard - Te Muna Valley Wines - is approx. 8 km from town. Guests have separate self-contained apartment with spacious modern bathroom, high pressure shower, & fully equipped kitchen - fridge, stove, oven. Breakfast (bacon, eggs, fruit, cereals, toast, croissants) included.
Sorry, totally not suitable for children or pets as we have 2 friendly Black Labradors, cats, chickens, & ducks (all outdoor animals).This is a working vineyard, with new winery you're welcome to tour.
Redbank Estate produces Te Muna Valley wines - Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Syrah, Rose, Chardonnay, and a Methode Traditionelle Rose which are available for sale from the winery. You can simply relax, enjoy the vineyard, see the viticulture in action and at vintage time, the winemaking, or explore the Martinborough area. Deborah and Colin are nearby to assist with directions.
Guests are welcome to walk all over the vineyard, and a public walk is available from Redbank across private farmland into Martinborough village. If practicable, Deborah can collect guests from the village.
There is Freeview TV in the cottage but if guests wish to view SkySport they are welcome to come join us in the main house. Likewise if they wish to use the Miele Washing Machine or Dryer, they are welcome to use them in the main house.
Interakcija s gostima
Yes, I can help when needed, but am also busy on the property too.
Dinner can be provided at extra cost, negotiable, plus wine at normal retail prices (we are licensed) if guests don't wish to drive to the very close and good restaurants in Martinborough.
We do have two dogs, very friendly and safe, which are kept outside. Limited cellphone reception both in the main house and the apartment.
I can accommodate gluten free, and other dietary requirements with notice.
NB: One couple found the lack of curtains disconcerting (see Matthias' review) at harvest time. I have noted this (we don't have any curtains in our house either because a) we love the wooden surrounds, and b) no neighbours). There is nobody to see into the cottage, but if you are really concerned about no window coverings, you should be aware of this.
Within reason, quiet time after 10.30 thanks.
