Disappointing wine tasting
Feb 2021 • Friends
The first of 3 vineyards we visited. Even though we had booked as we had a large group & I had confirmation of booking, we arrived to be told they don't do bookings & nothing was ready. We were told to go and find a table & eventually a staff member came out with glasses & then a bit later with the first wine. Was not very informative at all basically poured then went off to the Cellar to serve other people, waited about 10 to 15 minutes between tastings & nothing improved. We asked for water for between tastings she waved her hand that it was over there for us to get it ourselves.
Another group over from us had a different staff member who appeared to be more passionate about their wines. Unfortunately for BB one of our group is the wine buyer for a large hotel corporation that buys BB wines & she was unimpressed enough that she won't be continuing to buy from them. The general consensus of our group was arrogant, uninformative & uninterested. Fortunately the next 2 vineyards were amazing in contrast. Will not be recommending.

An afternoon at Black Barn - well worth the drive !
Jan 2021
A really nice winery with a good tasting option ( deducted from at purchase) plus lovely shop next to winery. A great way to spend the scatter on in the courtyard under the fig trees.
The lady who served our tasting also recommended a local Japanese restaurant which was absolutely divine.

Sadly Bistro was shut
Sep 2020 • Couples
Was looking forward to popping in here after touring the local area to grab some lunch and have a wine tasting. Sadly the bistro was shut. To be fair it seems like a lot of the cellar doors have shut their bistros/restaurants down with winter ands Covid so I’m not holding this against Black Barn. Might pay to check before going if you are looking for food.

The facilities are impressive and I can imagine on a nice day this place would be fantastic. We stayed for a wine tasting and it was very nice. The only thing I would say and again this maybe COVID related is we had to use the same glass for the 5 wines. No water provided to rinse the glass between tasting.

The wines were very nice however. The staff member was knowledgeable and very helpful.

Nice winery
Mar 2020 • Couples
Tasting cost $5 here can be taken off a purchase ( one per purchase). Bit disappointing to find that after the cycle up the restaurant had stopped serving early as they were hosting an event. Nice shop on site.

Wine tasting
Mar 2020 • Couples
Had been recommended the wines from this winery so whilst in the area decided to visit. Sadly couldn’t book lunch as they were full but did wander round the little kitchen shop which had some nice items and did a wine tasting. Tried four wines of our choice including their sparkling and a lovely Pinot Gris both of which we bought. Friendly and knowledgeable host who had time to chat. Thoroughly enjoyable way to while away some time. Next time we will try and eat here and/or stay

Another great night at the black barn amphitheater
Mar 2020
last Saturday night we attended the Mid Life Crisis concert at the Black Barn Amphitheater.

Concert was fabulous, great music , enjoyed more because there was plenty of room for dancing down by the concert stage. If you did not want to venture down there feel free to boogie on the terraces. Plenty of Black Barn Wine available, coffee, and good variety of food carts for when you are hungry. Of course you can take your own food as well...no bottles tho.

Refreshing new menu in best location
Nov 2019
This is my go-to place for lunch and I bring many high end overseas visitors here from all over the world and they love it.
This is quintessential Hawkes Bay- a boutique locally owned winery restaurant in a beautiful courtyard setting.
The new menu can be shared or not and has creative new dishes which are tasty without being over complicated and are all sourced from local seasonal produce. Highly Recommended

Average Wine Tasting
Oct 2019
Reasonable selection of wine but not all of their range available for tasting. Stood at the counter. Good knowledge of their wines.
