I called ahead and were told that they were fully booked in the restaurant however if we turned up we might be able to get a blanket on the grass where we could enjoy a platter and some wine. This suited us nicely with a baby and a 3yr old. The grass area is lovely - several big trees with... More

We did a winery tour here and it was very interesting. Well worth taking the time out to learn more about the wine making process and the story behind this winery.

We stopped here for a wine tasting and lunch on the first day of our ride around Hawkes Bay. The food was absolutely delicious and the wines were too. Thoroughly recommend stopping here for a meal and a wine tasting.

Lunch menu was a little limited - but... More

My wife and I always visit this winery when we "cross the ditch". We are always impressed with the quality of the wine and the service. All of NZ produces great wine, it is hard to know where to go, but at Church Rd they seem to go that bit further. We will certainly be back.

I have to say that I haven't been to this venue that for several years but we went for tasting today and the knowledge of Becky was superb so much so that we spent the most on wines at this winery. The church road wines are fantastic, the service is Superb. We didn't eat but the food going out to... More
