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.

WE were driving past and simply had to call in because it is refreshingly different and just what the Hawkes Bay needs. Many people did the wine tours on bikes which I intend to do next time. The biking trails are wide and well laid out enticing a very leisurely afternoon. Hastings is renowned for lovely dry hot weather so... More

This was our best cellar door experience during our 4 day winery extravaganza in hawkes bay. A family business where the family are very hands on, all the hard work has certainly paid off, beautiful wines in a beautiful setting, a very warm welcome at the cellar door, and to boot they even had some craft beers for my husband....

Amazing cellar door experience with 'family' friendliness. Both wine & craft beers available for tasting, buying & consumption in their comfortable & beautiful gardens. Super generous platters. Welcoming to all including kiddies who have a fun play area outdoors. Our highest recommendations
