Unison Vineyard was most defiantly the highlight of our Hawkes Bay wine tasting experience ! The Pino Gris offered at Unison was the best we had out of any of the wineries, and all of the other tastings were superb, we even tried a Brut...which I don't even usually like however it was amazing from here ! The platters were delicious and all servers friendly and knowledgeable. Our Host Giddian made the tasting fun and had the best sense of humor, he was an absolute gem who completely made our experience, would highly recommend going on a Sat to catch him. Highly recommend stopping at this winery and allowing the most time for it if you are doing a tourMore

This place is quite small but really boxes above its weight. The wine selection is extensive for such a small vineyard and the wines themselves are just amazing, certainly matching the more expensive vineyards. The wine pricing is very reasonable considering the high quality of...both the whites and reds. Our host, Luke, was fun and extremely informative. He provided generous tastings. Make sure you try the steak and blue cheese sandwich - to die for!!More

Had an awesome time at Unison as the last stop on a Grape Escape wine tour. Gideon was an absolute gem and we loved the time he took to get to know us and make sure we were trying wines that we were interested in....Delicious wines and a great host in Gideon made the experience for us!More

Unison Vineyard is situated on the famed Gimlet Gravels wine growing area near Hastings in Hawke's Bay, which is a renowned terroir for producing amazing red wines. Unison is a family owned boutique style winery, with cellar door sales and very pleasant indoor and outdoor...eating areas. Our mission was to sample some reds, have a meal, and take home some great red wines for our cellars. As it was Saturday the very congenial and incredibly knowledgeable cellar door host Gideon led us to a table where we sampled some of the wines on their extensive list, and ordered an amazing open steak sandwich from the interesting Winter menu. We knew Gideon from a previous winery and were delighted to catch up with him again. We will certainly be back! We left fully sated with our purchases clinking in the back of the car - mission accomplished!More

I had the pleasure of experiencing a wine tasting at Unison with my entire family + partners. We're a large group of fussy people and often difficult to cater to, but received what we found to be an exceptionally warm, attentive and entertaining service -...we really felt as though we'd received the royal treatment. I must make special mention of Gideon - what a larger than life character he is! I was very pleased with my purchase, and to be supporting a true Hawke's Bay boutique.More

Whilst on our on ya bike tour of winery’s in the region, Unison was a stand out for my friends and I. Our host Gideon was warm and welcoming. His humour, charisma and friendly nature made our experience enjoyable. My friends and I indulged in...a wine tasting that was tailored to our taste. We also shared a platter which was full of yummy bites for the three of us.More

Just a lovely little vineyard in Hastings. Family run with friendly staff. Lovely outdoor seating area. Nice wine and staff who are passionate about the product. We ordered a platter and it was nice to see a gluten free option available
