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.

We were wishing to sample some local wines , they were most welcoming and we had quite an array of wines to taste with friendly staff to tell us about them, we left with quite a few bottles if we were not having to fly home the following week we would have had more !!

Arrived here after a long cycle and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. We ordered our food from the fabulous menu and did a wine tasting while the food was being prepared. Wine tasting was great! We got a bottle of the merlot to have with our food. The quality of the dining was truly exceptional - my partner... More

This was the first stop on a wine tour, as I was a bit under the weather and couldn't really smell or taste properly, I can't honestly comment on the wine, but the lady serving us was very nice and informative. The location, on the other hand, was a bit odd, on a main road in town nowhere near a... More

We enjoyed a beautiful meal outside in the sun on a stunning Hawkes Bay day. I had the 12hour beef rib with polenta which was amazing. All the other dishes ordered in our group came highly recommended too (lamb kofta, pork belly & calamari). Will definitely return!! Service was warm and friendly. Loved it x

We were attracted by the large crowd seated on a nicely shaded and lawned area next to the Cellar Door and main restaurant. There was a very good menu and we had several entrees ans the recommended accompanying wine which were all terrific,

Our tour group was taken here on the way past as we left Napier. If you've been to a winery before you have probably heard their presentations and realise that only the facts change between them. There was the usual wine tasting after the tour, but we found the wines, even the apparently relatively sweet Pinot Gris were all too... More

The cellar door is attractive and the tastings of all but the reserve wines is complimentary. We especially enjoyed the Sauvignon Gris. The food and service at the restaurant was excellent, and eating outside in the shade was lovely.
