Yay - they are back open for business. The hostess here is the best, down to earth, and knowledgeable. Always fun, and respectful of our (lack of) knowledge. Great cellar door deals too!

The Ngatarawa winery really is a place where beauty meets taste. The cellar door itself is located in former stables, adding a very interesting touch to the entire story of the establishment of Ngatarawa. We really enjoyed the little tour, the tasting and the environment...More
