A great relaxing tour. John was so knowledgeable about winemaking. Outstanding wines and very very welcoming. We've done quite a few vineyard visits in various countries and this is the best.

I love this vineyard - it has been our favourite for many years and still is. Each time we return, we are recognised (a bit sad really but I promise we only go every couple of years!). The wine is always top notch and we only share it with people who appreciate wine. The advice that they give as to... More

We arrived shortly before closing time and the gentleman still served us with the upmost respect and passion for his wines. We sampled 5 of the best red wines of the region, rich in color and flavour. Such a cute vineyard with tons of personality and outstanding vintages.

We really enjoyed our visit of the Brookfield Vineyards. The wine tasting was very good, the host was very entertaining and knowledgeable. I came away enjoying some good wines and learning some things I did not know about wine and specifically New Zealand wines. It was a worthwhile stop.

This was hands down the best wine tasting experience we had while doing our wine tasting weekend in the region. We were not sure if the vineyard was open, but were so happy to find that is was. We were warmly greeted upon arrive and lead to a back barrel and function room where we sat at a table amongst... More

Loved this winery! The sun-dried Malbec is the wine to die for! We were met by the principal himself, who welcomed us in the warmest possible way. We spent the better part of 1,5 hours tasting and discussing the wines. Our favourite in New Zealand, not to be missed!

We have been buying from Brookfields Vineyards intermittently for the last 14 years. This is our favourite winery. Sharon (co-owner) is always really welcoming. We have bought some reserve wines from them to keep for special occasions and they have always been absolutely beautiful. Their sauvignon blanc never fails to please. A fantastic winery with great owners.

If you only visit one winery in Hawkes Bay make it this one, and that is saying something given the number of high quality vineyards in the area. Wonderful tastings from people passionate and enthusiastic about their wines. You won't leave without buying something!

The cellar door is casual but the people are very informative and highly engaged in their business. That they offer tasting from right across the range is quite unique in our experience. Often it is "we are only tasting these varietals"! We have always enjoyed our visits here over the years and this has led to us recommending their wines... More
