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

This was our first stop on our Napier wine tour and it was excellent. Skilled, knowledgeable and entertaining guide, and great wine. Shame this was the first vineyard as the rest paled in comparison after such a high standard!

Small family vineyard with passionate people showing off their superb creations. Don't miss the Syrah, it's a stunner!

Brookfields is one of the smaller vineyards and their wine is great. Having not been able to find it outside of restaurants I was very happy to make a visit. The lady at the cellar door was knowledgeable about the vineyard and the wine industry in general. She was a lot more relaxed than some of the other vineyards. She... More
