Description: Enjoy one of our "Taste of Hawke's Bay" cheese platters in the vines while enjoying a complementary tutored tasting of up to 6 wines. Then finish your platter with the one you enjoyed the most or a glass of our famous Frappe Vino wine cocktail. Note: We are a cellar door that offers platters and not a full restaurant. At Salvare we believe in a slower pace of life.....In taking time to enjoy the journey. We believe the same of wine, that it is best when enjoyed, not consumed. Whether it be with friends or family, good wine, like good food creates lasting memories of shared experiences. If you are looking for a little "Salvation" as you travel around "The Bay" be sure to stop in at Salvare Estate.

“Brilliant! ”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to Salvare Estate Winery and we were very very pleasantly surprised. The area were we had our platter was great, you were close to the vines. The platter we had was also very good. But the wine was superb and Steve was a great host. Will be joining the mailing list as soon as I get back home. Well worth the visit.

“Food could be better”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went to this delightful winery today. It has a lovely ambience, very friendly staff with plenty of time for you. We enjoyed tasting the gorgeous wines; - free with the platter;-) The platter was good, but for us nothing special. We especially found the bread pretty average. Also, we were wondering about the wisdom of serving so many vinegary pickles along with the wines..?

None the less, we had a wonderful time and will be back.

“Wine tasting at its best”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Recently our Wine club travelled to the Hawkes Bay on a wine tasting mission and came across the most delightful Salvare Winery.
If you are in the area this place is not to be missed!
We were all blown away with the friendly service and generosity of the owner.
The wines were delicious ..at no charge and we all thought their food products were simply scrumptious.

“wine and more”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

we enjoyed visiting this vineyward which offered not only wine but wine and food products in a friendly and pleasant setting, and we loved the wine labels by i think a local artist. also the wine is only available cellar door or online so it is well worth a visit.

“Great staff”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stopped at this winery after having a expensive and boring lunch at a previous one. It looked interesting from the road with the old car and interesting advertising "wine tasters wanted".
The lady present was extremely helpful and sampled the products with no charge which was a bonus. Bought some oils and tried the wine frappe which we all loved and bought the 3 pack as this was great value. Would highly recommend this place to anyone for a stop.
