We met the lady who runs the vineyard at a supermarket earlier on our holiday, so just had to call in. Glad we did. Amazingly she remembered us, and gave us a lovely tasting of all their wines. My husband mentioned that he makes beer, so we had a beer tasting as well! We were able to sit in the... More

We arrived 10 minutes before the advertised closing time and found the place deserted and all but shut down. No tasting was offered, the lights in the beer section had been switched off. We didn't feel very welcome at all. Shame. In the end I managed to buy a few bottles of beer but that's not the sort of visit... More

Abbey is a lovely place for a quiet wine or craft beer. Get a very nice platter, taste and choose a bottle of wine (or craft beer), and sit out in the sun or under a sunshade, and relax. The wines are good (despite what one reviewer said - we're red drinkers so can't say anything about the whites) -... More

We dropped by here whilst touring NZ and happy we did. Both the gentlemen we met were friendly and accommodating. The wine and beer are very good. My husband is a brewer and liscenced beer taster and he was pretty impressed with the beer.

Abbey Cellars was the first stop on our Tour. We were met by a very friendly team. The information regarding the winery was second to none and really interesting. What a lovely family business. The wines were superb and the descriptions given for each awesome. The beer at the end went down a treat for the men in our party.... More

I absolutely adore their rose wine called Passion (was Blushing Monk), the wine is excellent, they've now branched out into beers too. Always worth a visit!

Not much to say, great place, really lovely, young winery, excellent wines, people are great and have the wine passion... Just pop in and taste the result of their craftsmanship. I would have loved to taste the beets also but unfortunately I had to drive...

We went to Abbey Cellers for a wine tasting and were not disappointed. The building is just breath taking and beautifully executed. The ambience and decor is very beautifully done. The wine is very nice and we really enjoyed the range they had to offer. Overall a great experience and a recommend to anyone in the area.
