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

The wine was excellent, the staff were attentive and the food, although expensive was worth every cent.

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.

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
