Te Mata's entire focus is fine wine production. There's no restaurant or accommodation here, only a small Cellar Door for tastings. It's open daily over summer, and Wednesday to Saturday in Winter. Coleraine House opposite the winery is on private property and the home of the Buck family - the winery's owners. We do try and leave them in peace and quiet when we can. :) Te Mata is an estate producer - meaning it grows its own fruit on this property, then ferments and bottles that wine onsite. It’s a 'one stop shop' for wine production and export - rather than a food or entertainment venue. Independent, and New Zealand family-owned for over 120 years, the winery and vineyards were the first in New Zealand to be protected under conservation law as a wine-making heritage site - the 'Te Mata Special Character Zone'. Five of Te Mata's Showcase wines are listed as 'Five Star’ and ‘Super Classic' in Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wine. The winery has been awarded Robert Parker's highest classification 'Outstanding Producer, Five Stars'. Te Mata Estate wines are available in 45 countries.

Wines here are unique and tasty. The woman who did our wine tasting was super friendly and knowledgable on wine. She also gave us helpful tips for things to do in the area.

We all have different tastes in wine, but the wine wasn't as impressive as at some other wineries. $5 tasting fee. Also, the tasting room is not in the beautiful and architecturally-interesting Estate on the hill, but in a building up the road and across...More

We really enjoyed the wines. Yes, the cellar door or very basic and no restaurant but if you are after quality wine, you will not be disappointed. 5 nzd charge for the tasting which is waived if you buy any product.

Te Mata Winery is just stunning. The cellar door is exquisite with some wonderful wines to try. Coleraine is Te Mata Winery's premier wine and I could definitely see why. Will be back soon!
