My partner and I stopped in at Te Mata while riding the Havelock bike trail. The winery is beautiful and the wine tastings was one of the more memorable ones. The lady at the cellar door was great to chat with and I tried a variety of wine I had previously not tried - Gamey Noir. I would recommend making... More

We really enjoyed the wines. Yes, the cellar door or very basic and no restaurant but if you are after quality wine, you will not be disappointed. 5 nzd charge for the tasting which is waived if you buy any product.

Te Mata Winery is just stunning. The cellar door is exquisite with some wonderful wines to try. Coleraine is Te Mata Winery's premier wine and I could definitely see why. Will be back soon!

Te Mata are supposed to be one of, if not the best winery within Hawkes Bay, certainly according to Hugh Johnson. We we're disappointed that such a prestigious winery would have such a below par cellar door. The woman offering the tastings was all at once disinterested, rude and uninformative, equally the selection of wines on display was limited, certainly... More

AWESOME wines, IF you have the pockets as they're not cheap, Sally is lovely and friendly if u get to meet her. The Coleraine is a VERY special wine that knocks spots off the french and Aussie comparables, so buy as much as you can keep well. I'd love to see a restaurant and an upgrade of the facilities...if you're... More

Definitely worth a visit to. One of the oldest wineries in Hawkes Bay. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The wines are beautiful.

This was our second wine stop of the day in the Hawkes Bay area. The girl who waited on us for our tasting was the winemaker's daughter, and a treasure trove of information about the wine, local area, and culture. Excellent wines, delightful setting. Would highly recommend.

We've been here before but now this time with kids. A quick taste of our favourites and bought several varieties. We like the place due to location and memories- the wine is also very good
