About The Vines Village

The Vines Village is the perfect destination to explore, taste and relax amongst 4 acres of expansive tranquil landscaped lakeside grounds.


A short 10 minute drive from Blenheim, The Vines Village is perfectly located amongst the 'Golden Mile' in Marlborough's world famous wine country.

Here you can discover the award winning Whitehaven Wines Cellar Door, sample Golden Mile Brewing’s Beer & Roots Dry Gin (produced on-site and awarded 'NZ's Best Gin' at the 2021 NZ Spirits Awards), taste some of Marlborough/Tasman's best produce at the Vines Larder & Giftstore.

The Vines Village won the 2018 NZ Hospitality Award for 'Best Environmental/Sustainable Business', Wild Tomato 2019 'Best Cafe In Marlborough', Runner up at the 2019 NZ Retail Awards Finalist for 'Business Innovation' and the 2019 Cawthron Marlborough Environment Award for Business Innovation.

Enjoy some sweet treats and local charcuterie at the Vines Larder shop for crafts at The Quilters Barn for that something special and explore the world of pet and gardening wares at Pet & Patch.


Check out the region's cellar doors along the 'Ride The Golden Mile' Food & Wine Trail by biking with Explore Marlborough bike hire.

Bring the family out to enjoy a moment or two around the many shaded decks and covered areas or wander the grounds, native gardens and outdoor theatre. With loads of free parking for buses, camper vans, cars with trailers and bikes, vehicles of all shapes and sizes all are welcome.


The Vines Village is an essential stop on your journey through Marlborough and we look forward to seeing you soon.
