Ok, so I might have snuck this bottle home under my jacket after our F.A.W.C! gig in Saturday. Long-since sold out library stock of the One Off Underground Chardy. It's delish. It was a hit at the Drive+Dine lunch too.
Insider tip: Drinkers+Keepers look out in the near future...that's all I'll say. 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
Excellent! I just signed up to D&K last week, and I love this.
There was rain.
Well that was a blast! A group of hardy F.A.W.C!-ers joined us yesterday for our Drive & Dine out Te Awanga way. A little golf, a bit of knife throwing, a smidge of archery and then a whole lotta organic food, wine and chitchat.
Thanks to everyone involved, especially the most wonderful Fox and Amy from Outfoxed, and the 36 fab peeps who joined us in less than ideal conditions. Catch you next time F.A.W.C! Fiends! ... See MoreSee Less
We had a blast too. Thank you guys for great wine, food and company. Looking forward to the next event!
Great afternoon thanks team!
A little evening prep for our F.A.W.C!! Drive + Dine lunch this Saturday. If you missed out on tickets - sorry, we sold out suuuper quick - our planned summer F.A.W.C! event (November) will see many more tickets (defo NO stencilled place names) and lots more lovely FAWCers able to come to ours. Watch this space! ... See MoreSee Less
Check your in box! And just a little heads up: courier is the same price for 12 bottles as it is 6. (Little insider tip for ya!) ... See MoreSee Less
Closed this Saturday.
Sorry to disappoint, but our Cellar Door will be closed this Saturday as we host our F.A.W.C! Drive+Dine sold out lunch. As we are but a little crew and a compact space, this is a necessary evil as we take over the inside. Come visit us on Thursday, Friday, Sunday or Monday though, if you’re so inclined.
Thanks for your understanding. We F.A.W.C!-ing love you for it! ... See MoreSee Less
Chardy v Sauv?
Three new releases, including this rock star. Ya’ll know I love a good Chardy, but if that’s not your jam there’s a couple of Sauvys there too.
~ The Loom 2019 Chardonnay
~ Te Awanga Estate 2020 Sauv Blanc
~ Quarter Acre 2019 Sauv Blanc
Ok, show of hands - the Chardy or a Sauv? ... See MoreSee Less
A quick reccie to our very wintry-looking Cellar Door to check out our idea for a secret summer F.A.W.C event we’ll hold with some lovely pals. It’s gonna be fab. The photo will make sense in due course... And, yes, I just said SUMMER!

How you doin’?
A little bit of fresh air and we’re doing ace. Happy long weekend Aotearoa.
Thanks fab Cellar Door crew for keeping the lights on, the pizza pumping and the wine chilled. (Unless it’s a red 🍷 obvs. Although Sangiovese is nice with a little chill on it on a fine summer’s day. Probs not today though 👋) ... See MoreSee Less
We thought it was a good day for the Hawke's Bay Farmers Market, games and Te Awanga Estate Quarter Acre Section. Thanks for having such a lovely and fun wine club - we love Drinkers + Keepers. Good to see you, Jo and Rod, at the amazing show last weekend and thanks for supporting Jamie Macphail and Milly Macphail with The Small Hall Sessions. You guys are fab - what a wonderful community we have with all of you.💗
Back by popular demand ~ yes, even Loma (with a little therapy) has managed to move on from her annual pie phobia! ~ and just in time for F.A.W.C! it’s our pie + wine deal! A house-made, way-better-than-a-pie-warmer-pie plus a glass of wine for $25. And they’re good, really good.
This weeks flavours are:
~ Classic Mince and Cheese
~ Beef Rendang
~ Bacon and Egg
~ Vego Pumpkin Curry
GF options and Loma’s working on a vegan pastry too ... See MoreSee Less
