We hired bikes from Coastal Wine Cycles and spent a beautiful morning following the coastline. Clearview is just off the cycle path. It is one of only a couple of wineries in this area open early in the week. But what a find. Great food and wine at a reasonable price. The staff were especially friendly and welcoming.

We booked a table for 8 for a Sunday lunch to catch up with friends, several of whom were visiting from out-of-town or overseas, so we wanted to show them some of the best Hawkes Bay has to offer. We arrived to our table not set up, so had to awkwardly wait at the counter for a few minutes. We... More

Really nice setting with a good range of wines (including a very unique sweet red). Kate was amazing...extremely helpful, happy to chat and really friendly. It was a lovely sunny day and we stayed for about 45 minutes...great cellar door.

My husband and I went to Clearview after a recommendation from friends. We arrived at lunchtime and enjoyed a delicious platter which included smoked lamb, salmon, cured meats, chutney, beetroot puree, crackers and bread. We also tried some of the wines made on the estate - all very reasonably priced and a beautiful location. The waiting staff were great too!

My friends and I had a lovely lunch here but were very disappointed with the wine prices. We bought rosé for $33 a bottle as it's a really nice wine but then found it for $21 at the four square down the road...I went back to Clearview to ask if they would accommodate us since we'd bought several bottles from...

We are glad you enjoyed our restaurant and cellar door. Wines purchased to take away have a 'cellar door' price. Wines chosen from the restaurant wine list and enjoyed with lunch have a higher 'on wine price'. We apologize if this was unclear to you. More

On a miserable day we experienced a fantastic menu coupled with appropriately recommended wines. The service, knowledge of food and wine and lunch was exceptional and all at a very reasonable price. A must visit if your are in the bay

Although a great place to go with children, our lunchtime platters were not up to par with thickly cut lamb and salmon and tasteless mussels which did not suit the other tastings on the platter. Wine, as usual, was very enjoyable

Recommended by staff at Art Deco Masonic Hotel, our journey via rented bicycles took us to arguably our most favoured winery that we've experienced across the globe. A personal and unexpected tour by the owner served as an appetiser for a sumptuous meal and tasting of several of the branded reds and whites. We were so impressed that in 2017... More

Lunch and tasting served al fresco in tented area. Very diversified wine selection. Appetizer/lunch included mussels, lamb, salmon, artichokes, olives, breads, cheeses. Great descriptions and presentations. And, yes, we bought wine here!

Great all round, whether it's spare of the moment, on your bike or a planned afternoon with friends Clearview is consistently fantastic, bring the children ... A fantastic playground . The platters are very generous. If cooler weather ring and book a fire side table . My grandchildren have both enjoyed the chooks pecking around the vines close by. End... More
