Biked down to this great little spot. More isolated than other vineyards but still only a mellow 25-30min bike from town/other vineyards. Well worth the trip down. Sharon was extremely warm and welcoming and had lots of great knowledge to share not to mention generous pours. Would definitely go back.

Stopped in here while cruising the area on bikes. If you want a personal experience then discuss wines with Sharon at Brookefields. We have visited quite a few wineries in NZ and Australia and this was one of the best experiences we have had, she is so welcoming and has amazing knowledge of wines They were setting up for a...

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.
