Right on the main street of Kurow, at 45 Bledisloe Street, you will find our Cellar Door - The Vintner's Drop - where we provide visitors with a relaxed and inviting environment to taste our distinctive wines and enjoy something to eat.

Originally the post office for a busy commercial town, situated on the edge of the Waitaki River, our beautiful building is the perfect place to rest weary travellers' legs and learn more about other adventures to be had in the Waitaki. Small group events are our forte.

We love our little place, deep in the heart of the Waitaki Valley.
