Awful customer service
Jan 2021
Made a reservation for the winery. The reservation was confirmed via email. I then received a message a while later that my reservation was bumped to the next day.

Followed up with hostess she curtly insisted that the website doesn't always notify customers the winery is full and will automatically bump people until a different date. Perhaps Hawk Haven should fix the website so people know the reservations are full and don't drive out of the way.

Awful and rude customer service. Will not visit anytime soon.

Lovely outdoor wine tasting
Nov 2020 • Couples
We had a fantastic time at Hawk haven. The outside tent set up was fantastic and the wine tasting was definitely worth it. We loved the red and the Pinot Grigio and bought a bunch of bottles. They also have a food truck on hand which was awesome! We will definitely come again.

No wine for you! Baby
Oct 2020
My family was looking to spend an sunny afternoon relaxing with some wine. We went to Cape May Winery, they were very nice there but it was super crowded and had a wait to be seated. Since we had our infant granddaughter with us we chose to try somewhere else due to the wait.
So we went down the road to this place, it was much less crowded with plenty of empty tables outside.
After getting together we headed to the check in. As we approached the "greeter" rushed out, I thought perhaps someone was not wearing a mask, but it was something much more egregious. Yup it was the baby, 15 months old and half asleep in the stroller.
When we were told that their policy is no one under the age of 21 was permitted, I quickly looked around to make sure we did not mistakenly stop at a Strip club, or Adult bookstore by accident.
Nope, unfortunately we stopped at Hawk Haven,and we will never make that mistake again, baby or not.

I'm sorry that you were disappointed in your recent experience. We pride ourselves on the quality of our wines as well as the quality of our customer service. Unfortunately we are dealing with some pretty unusual circumstances lately due to this pandemic. We have reopened with the strictest interpretation of the guidelines set forth by the state. We decided to take the approach of how can we keep people safe instead of what can we get away with. Since we reopened, it has been a mixed bag of uncertainty, fear and constant change. After each week of service we have a meeting to discuss what restrictions we can relax for the coming week. We are working hard to provide the best experience for our customers, but now we are also responsible for the safety of our staff and our customers. It is a lot of pressure on our staff and I ask that you have a little patience, not just with Hawk Haven but with the hospitality industry in general. I heard your comments and will address them in Monday's staff meeting. I recommend calling or checking the website of the places you plan to visit so you can be aware of their policies before making the trip. -Kenna Wuerker, Owner

Sad
Oct 2020 • Family
Sad Social Statement
On Friday I was supposed to meet my wife, daughter and my 3 month old grandson at Hawk Haven. They called me at 2:20 and said there was a change in plans and to meet them at Cape May Winery. I later found out that they would not let them in because of the baby. The place was basically empty a few people and actually a couple dogs but they wouldn’t let in a family with a baby. My wife explained that they were happy to sit outside where there was loads of room and no one to bother but they refused. Very sad when dogs are allowed but not babies! The good news is we had a wonderful time at Cape May winery. They had live music early on Friday afternoon and a great crowd. The food and wine were excellent and we will be going back there. I had been one of the early members of Hawk Haven but now I will never return.

A lovely way to spend an hour or 2
Oct 2020
I spent a lovely day at the winery with my daughter. We got the tasting for 2 ($40) which included (6) 2-oz. pours. All the wines were very enjoyable and the service was great. Would highly recommend.

Lovely Place

Lovely place! Wines were very good. Staff was nice, tables were socially distant. The food truck looked good but we had the cheese plate which we thoroughly enjoyed. Support local!

Great start to the trip
Aug 2020 • Couples
Forecast called for rain and hotel check-in wasn’t until 3 so we stopped at Hawk Haven on the way into town to start the trip off right 🍷 . Website said reservations required so we called before arrival and the hostess was very accommodating and told us to stop by. The outside set up was nicely done and the weather held up so we got to enjoy the scenery for a while. The wine was very enjoyable and the tapas box we ordered was a nice mix of snacks that paired nicely with the wine. All staff and customers seemed to follow COVID protocol and it didn’t take away from the experience at all. Very nice time, will repeat.
