Good place to taste and buy wines

There are many quality wineries in Hawke's Bay. We went to about a dozen. Some wineries were better for food, others for music, but this place was great for the actual wines.

Very friendly and informative staff. Relaxed tasting and not pretentious at all. Really liked the fact they are completely local to the area.

I visited 10 vineyard during my time in Hawkes Bay and this was one of my least favorite. I say that BC the cellar is small and you are only offered certain wines. I know during a tasting there are only select wines to try but if one is interested in tasting the finer wines to purchase then I feel... More

Te Mata is one of the oldest family owned wineries in the Hawke's Bay. One can taste 6 of Te Mata's award-winning wines and they are exquisitely crafted examples of the best in category. Toby and or James who can be often found in the tasting room are excellent cellar door hosts. Te Mata is also 1 of only 2... More

For such lovely (and pricey) wines they could surely try harder. Cellar door is tiny and looks straight into the admin offices, maybe shut a door or frost a window?!

We travelled to find the home of one of our favourite wines only to find them closed - despite their website saying - Open Daily!! Is it too much to ask that these places advertise their Winter Hours??

This wine tasting experience was different to others I have experienced. The chap we spoke with didn't offer information on the wine, instead we given the list of wine and read what the wine was made up of which was fine....but then he is just stood there watching us taste. We did ask questions but his answers were very closed.... More

The lady looking after us instantly made us feel relaxed and welcome - They offer a range of quality wines from $20-$50 , the tasting was informal and unpretentious . We are looking forward to going back to taste &... More

Great wine and a relaxed tasting experience, No one is in a hurry and the wine is great. Definitely worth a trip out as is better than some of the bigger estates.

We had a short break in Hawkes Bay immediately before Christmas, and one stop was at Te Mata. We know their wines well, and buy most years to cellar. James was doing the tastings the day we were in and he was great - knowledgable and unobtrusive. We were also fortunate that John Buck passed through and stopped for a... More
