We called ahead and booked a tour of Sileni. Since it was the off season we were the only ones on the tour. It is not a large place and they were pressing olives for oil at time. We tasted the oil as it was squeezed. They have a great cheese and wine shop. We fell in love with their... More

We enjoyed this winery - it has a beautiful cellar with great people working. Gorgeous grounds. And a big gift shop, for a NZ winery. Great tastings!

We had a tour with Anne the retail manager who was such a delight! Very interesting winery with an olive press attached to boot. The cellar door was great and the tour was informative too. We visited Mission Estate and Elephant Hill the same day. Sileni was definitely the best wine we had!

Great start to our wine day tour. Nice wine, good selections of food, books, accessories in the boutique and great scenery. Anne, at the cellar door was really friendly and helpful. Thank you for the NZ map and all great directions on where to go!

We had a great tour of the winery. The tastings were superb. Sileni also have a fantastic cheese selection to purchase. Had a great... More

We are a group of nineteen friends and family who cycled round some of the Hawkes Bay vineyards on a self-organised winery tour yesterday. Arranging this visit to Sileni in advance with Anne was very easy and our group was delighted by the warm welcome we received, the knowlegeable commentary and the excellent wines. The Vllage Press olive oils, which... More

Sileni was our last Vineyard stop on our trip but it was indeed a memorable one! We were served by Anne who not only engaged us in a good conversation about their wine but also provided us with accurate road directions and food recommendations on the road. She is funny, sincere and very helpful. We were so glad we made... More

We visited Sileni as part of a winery excursion with Royal Caribbean. Of the three wineries, this one was the most friendly as well as educational. It was the only winery we visited that I liked *all* if the wines tasted. Anne Boustead was the staff member offering the tasting and she was truly a treasure! She was definitely the... More

Upon receiving a map of all the wineries in the region, the first thing that drew my attention was the cheese room! The tree-lined driveway leads to the majestic estate and the vineyards are off to the side. The wines are fantastic (the Pinot Noir and Syrah are a must-try) and are award winners - the cellar prices are great... More
