This place is beautiful! a true winery experience, great service and wine, with a quick winery tour by our tour guide. The lady serving was fantastic with a great focus on the wine and not too pushy with sales. Really nothing to fault here. I have been in many working wineries and this one is special. It's a shame our... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Esk Valley Winery. GREAT location and views, and the wines were very good. Just wish we could've taken more wine home after buying two bottles! The lady on duty was very knowledgeable and very friendly, and answered all our questions and then some including some history about the area. Highly recommend the visit, and would... More

We visited this winery on our way to Napier. The young lady on duty was very professional and enthusiastic and was knowledgeable about the vineyards. After our tasting we selected two bottles sadly we could not take more home on the plane. A bonus was meeting Muscat! Well worth a visit we Re glad we stopped by.

The sun was shining with much strength. The room was very warm, needed a ceiling fan... This was our second time here. The first 1993, we stopped in and enjoyed the wine. Came back the next day and bought three bottles, took them back to California wine country! They were a hit. Today, once again a tasty visit!

We stopped here on the way into Napier, having read that they do a great Verdelho. We were not disappointed, and thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting. The young lady who was taking us through the tasting was very friendly and helpful, and made it a great experience.

We were delighted with our platinum hair lady guide. Esk Valley Winery is a handsome building, a great tasting room, and some great wines. This visit deserves 60 - 90 minutes. The manager holds great knowledge, and explains better than any Napa or Sonoma guide we have experienced. Purchased several bottles to go!

Although several times during our tour of New Zealand we had the opportunity to taste red and white wines of this estate in restaurants, the visit there showed us that they also make excellent rosé! Friendly welcome, competent advice. We surely bought a few bottles of their wine.

I loved Esk Valley Winery because the hostess was so wonderful taking the time to talk to you and making you feel very welcome. Ok, it was monday morning 10.30 am and not a lot of people where there but they were at least open and as I said before very happy to see us. The late pick chenin blanc... More
