We purchased great wine, and bought a bottle of cold sav, they were happy to lend us glasses while we sat in the sun, enjoyed the surroundings and the... More

Building beautifully restored and a full range of wines available to sample. Excellent prices, including a great special if you buy 3 bottles. Attentive staff and overall a very pleasant experience

We went here for wine tasting - were thrilled to hear it was free even with no purchase and had a very knowledgeable Argentinian explaining the wines to us. Tasted about 8 of them and then bought some to take home!

This was one of the few cellar doors that did charge a tasting fee. The lady really gave an indulgent wine tasting experience. Some great wines at great prices!

We visited Ngatarawa on a perfect Hawkes Bay afternoon. The entrance to the winery up the long tree lined drive was very impressive. The winery tasting room is set in an historic stables and is very cool. The staff were super friendly and helpful (and even complimented my wife on the new wallet I bought her for Christmas, which earned... More

This was the 4th winery we visited in Napier today and we arrived as a large group had just started their tasting. We were asked to wait until they were finished so we could have a separate, quieter tasting-which we more than happily obliged. Approx 15 minutes later, the group left and the man running the tastings was very apologetic... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this winery, the third of four on a winery tour. It is housed in a former stable. Some of their wines bear the Stables brand name in local grocery stores. The wine tasting was very enjoyable and we had a snack afterwards in their olive grove.

We revisited the Ngatarawa Winery recently and enjoyed this winery as much as we had in the past. Unfortunately the weather was poorly this time around so we were unable to enjoy the nice mirror pool and grounds outside the wine tasting room this time around. However, the wines were just as nice as we had remembered. We again found... More

This winery is absolutely gorgeous, the grounds are incredibly stunning and are steeped in history. the young man working at the cellar down was from South America and was fabulous. Full selection of wines to try which was great. Love that they have differing levels e.g. Stables. The dessert wine was lovely and I couldn't resist buying a bottle.
