We turned up mid afternoon after moving house and were treated to some friendly service, a knowledgeable wine tasting server and then shared a platter. The staff were able to correctly advise what to get that would be enough for all of us. And it tasted so good. Added to all this you can sit in the shade and enjoy... More

What a treasure she is - personable, knowledgeable and generous. We tasted at other wineries over the weekend and no one came anywhere near matching her. What a great asset you have in her, Church Road.

We were here on Easter Saturday, and didn't realise they were expecting a heap of cyclists to arrive for the annual cycle ride from Havelock North. We had a tour, and then a tasting.

Lovely winery with tastings and small platters. Only a short drive form Napier city centre and many tour visit here. A nice afternoon activity for those that enjoy a glass or two. Watch opening times as they differ with the seasons.

We did this as part of the wine tour which included another four wineries. This was the first one. We considered going back to sample the food as it all looked wonderful but ran out of time.

My husband and I came here on the weekend for lunch. Such welcoming and hospitable staff. We had lunch here with the accompanying wines for each meal and both of our meals were AMAZING. We both agreed it was the best food we had eating during our week long holiday and would recommend this to others without a doubt.
