Really enjoyed the atmosphere here and they catered for my disabled Father really well. Excellent tasting, we missed the tour as we did not think they could take a wheelchair (two of us have done it before) but they can so we are going back tomorrow

We had one of the best meals of our 2 week North Island trip at this winery. We arrived by bike from Napier and decided to go for the wine tasting which we enjoyed so much we stayed for lunch. We sat in the garden and ordered the platter and it was fabulous. So many kinds of dips, spreads, meats... More

A must on any Hawke's Bay Wine Tour, it's worth it to pay for the tour of the grounds and museum that's conducted every hour. Beautiful views to Sugarloaf Reserve out back, and a gorgeous courtyard that everyone was just lolling about sampling wine from. Excellent wines, and the premium wine tasting was worth every dollar. To that end, it's... More

Very hungry after a four hour drive to Napier and thinking that lunch at a winery would hit the spot, we decided on Church Road for no other reason that it was a name we were familiar with. While the tasting room/restaurant is on a main road in Napier and was not very appealing on a cloudy day, we were... More

Went for lunch today, and had a wine tasting before. Nice wines and very friendly staff. Lunch was amazing, we ordered the pork belly, polenta chips and 12 hour beef, followed by caramel parfait and chocolate torte for dessert. Everything was to die for, could not find a single fault. Would definitely recommend :)

This place has the best reds - the guy who served us was so friendly and knowledgable about wine. He opened so many bottles for us to try, and we ended up buying a few. But we didn't stop there - we ate at their restaurant which was fantastic! They had this 12 hour slow cooked beef ribs which was... More

Well worth including this winery on your list to visit, no cover charges, knowledgable and friendly staff. Great selection of both white and red wines. We also purchased some local cheese which proved to be excellent too. Recommended.
