Usually when I do a wine tasting I like one enough to buy a bottle. I liked almost every wine I tried and had some tough decisions to make. I didn't do a tour but the area where they sell the wines is very impressive.

I found this restaurant by driving by. Nice little restaurant with room for parties. Well presented menu with moderate prices. The dishes are enormous with tasty food. Seating was comfortable and atmosphere was colourful

Have always been quite partial to Church Road wines so when I was in the area I decided to visit the opening times in a leaflet differ to actual times but this was ok as there are some grounds to wander around. Staff were extremely friendly and the building inside and out is quite remarkable

A wonderful taste off of French vs Hawkes Bay Bordeaux styles. Exceptional winemaker, excellent wines and good platters

Fantastic location, great staff - very knowledgable about the wines and local area. Food was fabulous, the relaxed environment makes you want to stay longer - perhaps have that extra glass of vino - will be back.

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
