About
Nestled on an elevated site in the foot hills that hug Te Awanga, our cellar door has views down through our 42 acres of vines, across the Te Awanga basin and out to the wide blue Pacific Ocean. Decked out in white and plywood, our home in the Bay, with its sea views and salty air, is reminiscent of a New Zealand summer spent at the bach (holiday home). Chill, take your time and taste your way across the range from award-winning winemaker Rod McDonald – Trademark, Quarter Acre, Te Awanga Estate, One Off, and Mister. All day wine tasting and grazing (our menu changes seasonally, but check our website for our style of food) works by local artists and once a month during summer, we hold our world-famous-in-Te Awanga Sunday Sessions with live music from local artists on our front lawn. Or down-tools and stay a while in our cosy but cool Vineyard Apartment above the cellar door.

Pizza and wine with a view

The only place we could find with a decent vineyard view. Others too big, others too small... this one just right! Gorgeous spot.

Winner

We stayed in the apartment here for 2 nights, comfy bed and outstanding views. We enjoyed a wine tasting in the sunshine on a quiet weekday afternoon, and absolute winner. Jodi was attentive with a great knowledge of the product.

Poor service
May 2021
The service was a shocker - it might as well be from a robot.
The hostess was not engaged at all. We have been here before (several times) and have had much better engagement in the past. It seemed that we weren't important to them at all.
The wines available for tasting were the lower end and much like everywhere else but we know they produce much better.

Was recommended that I go so on a stunning Sunday in the Bay - why not. On arrival it was a little disorganised as lunch diners are trying to compete with wine tasters at the same counter. Nonetheless found a nice spot on the grass. Ordered pizza and platter. One word - outstanding!!
Only wines available were the ones used for tasting so if you don’t like these - then it’s bottle buy only. Also - asked for ice bucket and they had no ice.
All in all it was a good experience and I would certainly return.

Disappointing
Feb 2021 • Couples
We had read the reviews and were therefore disappointed with our experience. Staff member was busy when we entered,but acknowledged us and gave us tasting notes saying she would be with us soon. Unfortunately two pushy women came in looking for some designer type label and that was basically the end of us getting any service. We were disappointed as we had been looking forward to trying their wines, anyhow we left our presence obviously was not missed!

Excellent service, food and wine
Jan 2021
We had a wine tasting on our first day and second day we returned to have a glass of our preferred wines with a Pizza. The pizza was really good. A thin base with just the right amount of toppings. We sat outside, in the shade with a barrel as our table. The views were really great and the sett ING so relaxing.

Take time out
Jan 2021 • Couples
We hired some bikes from Coastal Wine Cycles, took a loopy round trek and ended up in this little gem. Staff were great especially the wine guy. He was extremely helpful in giving me samples of wines I might like as I’m newbie wine drinker and only like sweet wines. We found a rose that we both liked in the process. Pizza was great, if a little expensive and we ended up lolling about for the entire afternoon. Superb!

Boutique Gem
Jan 2021 • Couples
We dropped in on a beautiful sunny day looking for somewhere to enjoy a vino and some nibbles. What a great find. Beautiful views. Best of all the Rose was dry and delicious and crisp on a beautiful hot day. We ordered the Funguy pizza with mushrooms, caramelised onions and cheese it was fabulous. In fact it was so good we immediately ordered another. A nice boutique vineyard with relaxed friendly service and delicious food. Best of all there are blankets available so you can find a spot on the grass under the trees to enjoy your food and wine. Great find and we will be back!
