We were recommended to visit here by a friend in the wine industry, we were fortunate to have tobias look after us, he was very knowledgable and passionate about the wines. The flavours were exceptional and arranging delivery back to Australia is easy, they can ship 8 bottles for price of 6, or 15 for price of 12.

By far the best wines we tried in the region! The Gamay Noir was a stand out and a must try. The cellar door isn't as grand as some in the region but the wine absolutely speaks for itself.

There are many quality wineries in Hawke's Bay. We went to about a dozen. Some wineries were better for food, others for music, but this place was great for the actual wines.

I visited 10 vineyard during my time in Hawkes Bay and this was one of my least favorite. I say that BC the cellar is small and you are only offered certain wines. I know during a tasting there are only select wines to try but if one is interested in tasting the finer wines to purchase then I feel... More

Te Mata is one of the oldest family owned wineries in the Hawke's Bay. One can taste 6 of Te Mata's award-winning wines and they are exquisitely crafted examples of the best in category. Toby and or James who can be often found in the tasting room are excellent cellar door hosts. Te Mata is also 1 of only 2... More
