What a lovely place, and what a great people. They won't only spend all the time explaining everything there is to know about their wine, but will also give you enough (great) tips in the region to fill your weekend. Great experience!

The young man that helped us what a fount of knowledge. He gave us lovely details about the wines, the tastes in the wines and the area. He was pleasant and friendly. The wines were good too.

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.

I love their red wines, specially the Awatea Cabernet Merlot. We had a tasting, and ended up buying 2 bottles of wine to take away too. The Awatea and... More

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
