Our local guide took us to Te Mata for a tour and tasting. Wonderful tour and excellent tasting. I thought the wines were very good and ended up having a case shipped back to the states!

We stopped here along one of the island wine tours. We really enjoyed the wine, but the pricing was a little high to buy bottles to bring home. I believe the pricing was from $40-60 per bottle. Great outdoor patio space for enjoying the afternoon....More

It's all about the Cape Crest - Sav Blanc. This should be the flagship for this winery, a very good expression of the Te Mata terrior.

Just a small room with tastings of the cheapest wines in their selection. Bookings are required for tours, so we were left wondering what to do after the tasting. Wouldn't reccomend

We stopped by here between Craggy Range and Black Barn and were _very_ underwhelmed. The tasting is 7.50 and is of some of their down-label wine. Nothing interesting. Can't try their Coleraine. It feels more like the winery's back office with a minimal "tasting room"...More
