We were exceptionally lucky to be guests at a wedding hosted at Te Mata Winery. The walk through the trees was beautiful. The meal was devine. The staff were the best we have ever encountered at any event.

“Bad signage led to mediocre tasting experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

The wine is decent, but the bad signage that led us up to the wrong place (and had us meet with an upset man who just grumbled that it was a private residence--even though he turned out to be the owner--it would have been nice if he redirected us to the proper entrance.) The entrance was marked Te Mata Estates and had grapes in front of a whimsical building--what were we to expect. Then they have a small tasting room in front of an office--not our favorite place, but not awful either. Change the signs in front for better business.

“Wines of excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This place makes first class wine, and the winery is an interesting building. Staff are knowledgeable and very friendly, they provide an excellent on line buying service too.

“Lovely greeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

I really liked all the wines I tasted and the staff at the cellar door were interested in what I had to say. Nice environment and I was made to feel very welcome
