Our host, Steve Smith, was superbly accommodating as he regaled us with stories about the history of the vineyard and their wine production. This was followed by a fun tasting experiment where we broke off into small groups and attempted to discern the ingredients used to make one of their stellar wines. Afterward, a walk through the gardens refreshed us... More

Turned up for a party with my sister and was told lunch service was closed for dinner, didn't try to make us still feel welcome or tell us when dinner was. We were told we could have a wine tasting an cheese platter and was disappointed to find the "platter" was one piece of cheese and a few crackers. For... More

We only stopped in for a drink but what a magnificent place. We snuck in whilst they were preparing for dinner and enjoyed a drink on the 'terroir' overlooking the vines and the large duck pond looking up at the 'craggy range'. We would definitely have planned to dine here had we done our research in advance. What a special... More

We stayed for 2 nights at one of the cottages. A mix of vision of the owner, hospitality of the staff at Craggy Range and the enduring outstanding scenic surroundings concoct a cocktail which upon partaking transports the peripatetic traveller to a surreal state of bliss and rekindles the memory every time, anywhere one rests the head on the pillow...

Wow , the wines are really good , the buildings are amazing, the setting is beautiful. The restaurant was closed for a private function. The tasting room is a fantastic setting with great outlook to try these wines. go there.

This place can't help but be pretentious. Its awe inspiring in its architecture but the service felt plastic and disingenuous. You have to pay a fee for tasting unlike most winery cellar doors - and the wine here is nothing to rave about. Menu is exciting, but the distance to get here makes the out of the way trip less...

One of the highlights of my half day Hawke's Bay wine tour. If you like Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah, you will love Craggy Range. After tasting (and purchasing a couple of bottles of wine), had a wonderful lunch al fresco at Terrior. Very enjoyable & relaxing part of my day.
