recently I took family members to Seleni Estate Winery and the service was fantastic! the lady was knowledgable and was generous with the tasting! I ended up buying excellent value case of wine myself. We were able to use a room to enjoy a glass of wine with crackers and cheese purchased there. Most accomodating.

Any one can try and sell something to you. The experience is made way better when that person has passion for what they are selling. You always leave here feeling happy for that reason. Great gift shop and fab wines.

This year I took a client of mine from out of town to Sileni Estates and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They loved indulging and trying Sileni wines with the Gewurtztraminer being his and my favorite to which he and I purchased one each. I really loved the shop attached to Sileni, I love it how you had heaps of local... More

Sileni is a really great place to take visitors. Not only do they offer a wide range of wines for tasting and sale at reasonable prices but they also have an excellent kitchen shop and cheese room. The Manager, Anne, and her team are welcoming and knowledgeable not only about the products they sell but also about New Zealand as... More

The minute we entered into the front door of the building, the scent of the wine-making made us intoxicated!

The winery was quiet on the day of our visit so we were able to have a quick wander upstairs for views over the vineyards and a peak at the wine-making equipment. The staff here are friendly and knowledgeable; we were pleasantly surprised to be able to taste a selection of six wines free-of-charge (unlike our local wineries in California)... More

Awesome Cellar Door, Awesome Staff with The Best Wines we found in the Bay. What a genuine find in the Hawkes Bay. This Cellar Door is simply the best we have visited. The staff were such fun, even though they were extremely busy, they made an effort to include all their visitors and made our visit an amazing experience. We... More

We went to the winery with a local friend on the day of Wine Festival. Different from the experience we had from the other winery, this one has a stylish shop selling own brand wines and food with peaceful and quiet atmosphere. We were very lucky to meet the manager Anne who has been so hospitable and invited us to... More
