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,

Friendly people and excellent wine. Worth a visit. Take the time to ask questions and explore the different varietals.

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.

We stopped by for lunch and a wine tasting at Church Rd - food was interesting and sophisticated, (and very reasonably priced!) We had Beef Carpaccio with Goats Cheese Pannacotta and Drunken Mushrooms; and Middle Eastern-Spiced Lamb Cutlets on a Citrusy Faro Salad with Hummus. Our waitress was wonderful and food came out very quickly. Sitting outdoors in the sunshine... More

We had the meal paired with wines...the quality of both, top notch. The decor certainly needs some sprucing up, but the food and wine are heaven. We are accustomed to seeing wineries in rural areas so it was odd to find this one in the middle of a residential neighbourhood.

We had a mixture of entrees for lunch. Excellent food, well presented and the service was good too. We sat out under the trees it was beautiful.
