This vineyard is a little further out than some of the others, but we thought it worth the drive. It is certainly less commercial and a lot smaller, but that just adds to its charm. Very knowledgeable guy doing the tastings. Interesting views of their...More

I feel like we had a completely difference experience than the others who have wrote reviews. I'll start by saying the views overlooking the water and the grapes were the best of the wineries we visited. While the service wasn't rude, we found them to...More

Now owned by Villa Maria, but Gordon Russell is still Esk's wine maker with 25 years experience! Super wines. Both the 2017 Chardonnay and 2016 Reserve Chardonnay were marvellous but totally different. The Pinot Noir comes from their Marlborough vineyards and is a good medium...More

Very informative and enjoyable wine tasting in a building amongst the vines and next to the winery. Lots of different varieties available to try, as well as buy

We very much enjoyed our tasting at Esk Valley. They have some of our favorite HB wines. The cellar door isn’t fancy but the views back to the sea, over the vineyard, is just fabulous.

We loved visiting Esk Valley winery. The wines were delicious (our favourites were the Chardonnay and merlot blend) and the server was lovely. Would recommend

Went for a tasting with a mix of friends - some, like myself, experienced wine drinkers while others in our group it was their first time. Extremely knowledgable and lovely staff with an excellent range of wines. The late harvest Chenin Blanc was a standout!

Enjoyed the tasting and chatting with the member of staff. Not as commercial as many of the tasting rooms but that made it all the more charming.
