Listen to Rod.
While we’re closed today, and this photo here shows exactly what we’ll be doing..., if you need a TA fix, like REALLY need a TA fix, then snuggle down with a podcast deep dive into the what, why and where of Rod as he’s interviewed by his mate Harv from Collective Intelligence on the Stuff That Matters Now poddy. Light that fire first, though. It’s a long one.

It’s a story of tenacity, skill, family and bravery. Did I mention tenacity? Thanks for sitting down with me Rodders. I know it’s your story, and you maybe don’t appreciate how cool it is, I do. Hope others take the time to understand you a little more too.
Excellent interview Rod. Enjoyed listening sitting in front of our fir 😀
The pie, the wine + the queen.
Man, do you guys like pies! Open again today to celebrate all the wonderful people who have flooded into Hawke’s Bay...and the Queen of course. Pie+Wine for $20 is super pops, so please book 06 875 0553. ... See MoreSee Less
Absolutely delicious, we loved the Beef and blue cheese. Well done Loma 😋
Popping this in the fridge as we slide into the long weekend. Love to see you out our way at the Cellar Door over the weekend if you’re so inclined, but wherever you go and whatever you do, go forth and chill. ... See MoreSee Less
Ooooh - on my way... I love Chablis! Cheers Dauvissat 🤩
Our old friend Mister.

Having been stuck at home instead of going to work with Rod for over two months now, Cricket is still unsure exactly what the point of a day is.
I’m not taking it personally. Well...trying. ... See MoreSee Less
Needs a cat to chase!
OMG the pie is back!
This special was such a hit last year for winter F.A.W.C! that Loma hasn't made, looked at, nor eaten another pie since then!
But, about a week ago, with the help of a little pie aversion therapy, we managed to get her to progress forward and we're stoked to let you know that starting Friday we're bringing back our world-famous-in Te Awanga Wine+Pie deal for the winter. That's right pie lovers, our house-made POTD (ohhhhh that's sooo close to POTUS it's scary, I'll probably get shut down!!) and a glass of wine to match all for $20.
If I were you, I'd book!! Just saying.
P.S. POTD means Pie of the Day...so back down secret service. And Loma is just fine. Honest. ... See MoreSee Less
Queenie's havin' a birthday!
And it seems only fitting to celebrate...cos, ya know, she's the Queen and all, and so this weekend we're not only opening Friday + Saturday, but throwing open the doors on Sunday too.
From 12-4pm each day, we'll be rolling out the regal red carpet with wine sales + a grazing menu + wine flights (that's a flash phrase for seated wine tastings if you're into them!).
Then on Friday + Saturday evening, we'll still be serving our world-famous-in-Te Awanga pizzas with our Pizza Pick Ups. Pre-order those bad boys on 06 875 0553, or Loma 027 726 8607.
And while I have you. Thanks for your support in this strange time. It's been lovely to see everyone rolling in again at our home base in Te Awanga Estate. We 100%, hand on heart, appreciate it. ... See MoreSee Less
Jane Willersdorf if the weather allows us ..........
Fun surely was had over lockdown with many peeps making the most of the tricky situation and I think none more than this fab little family here. When challenged to photograph our wine in a Lockdown situ and tag us in with #HaveaGlasswithRod, this is what they came up with...
... their very own Sunday Session! Note the details: The sign above the musicians says Te Awanga Sunday Session, the bottle of Quarter Acre in the foreground, a platter, and the bucket of Carona Beer with a sign saying "keep 2 metres away"... Gold.
Congrats Peter Batty and fam, shoot us a DM and we'll get your treats on their way. Thanks to everyone who played #HaveaGlasswithRod, it was very entertaining watching them roll in. ... See MoreSee Less
Peter Batty woooo hoooo some goodies from our favourite winery!
I love this! Looking fab as always Karen 😍🥂
Karen Batty awesome!
Word has just come through from the Cellar Door crew that not only are they serving a menu of deliciousness out there between 12-4pm, as well as preparing pizza for your evening Pizza Pick Ups (4.30-6.30pm, please pre-order 06 875 0553), BUT they are now able to return to providing wine tastings. That's a glass-clinking win for the wine lovers!
Pop-out and see Kenny, Sally and Loma, Friday + Saturday for your TA top up! Cheers to that 🥂 ... See MoreSee Less
Awwwww get out!
My local highly recommend. 💜
Great spot with awesome neighbours!!😂
Cheeky Little Chardy 6 pack.
Today we celebrate in earnest the grape that is Chardonnay by offering you a Cheeky Little Chardy six-pack. Because after all, she is the reigning goddess of all white grapes, and when lovingly nurtured from bud burst to ripeness, picked at just the perfect time, handled minimally then popped into a bottle, it's pure gold, I say, pure gold!
So just for you, we’ve rustled up a Cheeky Little Chardy or 2…or 6, if I'm honest, so you can try a veritable potpourri of Chardys in one six-pack. We actually do love Chardonnay…quite a jolly lot!
Jump on over to our website to check it out, each is different, each is delectable and each will make you exalt out loud as you stand to your feet and declare..."Praise be for Chardonnay!"
