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), taste Marlborough’s best produce at the Vines Village Cafe & Deli.

The Vines Village Cafe & Deli was the winner of 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.

Pru & Co.


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