Nestled on an elevated site in the foot hills that hug Te Awanga, our cellar door has views down through our 42 acres of vines, across the Te Awanga basin and out to the wide blue Pacific Ocean.

Decked out in white and plywood, our home in the Bay, with its sea views and salty air, is reminiscent of a New Zealand summer spent at the bach (holiday home).

Chill, take your time and taste your way across the range from award-winning winemaker Rod McDonald  – Trademark, Quarter Acre, Te Awanga Estate, One Off, and Mister.

All day wine tasting and grazing (our menu changes seasonally, but click here for our style of food) works by local artists and once a month during summer, we hold our world-famous-in-Te Awanga Sunday Sessions with live music from local artists on our front lawn. Or down-tools and stay a while in our cosy but cool Vineyard Apartment (click here to take a peek) above the cellar door.

COVID-19 Level 4 update.
Our Cellar Door will be closed as of 5pm Tuesday 24 March, and reopening once we’ve safely ridden this lock down wave.  However, you can order any of our wine via this website, with free freight around New Zealand, or with any questions please email lovely Kenny on or Jo on
Please continue to support all the small businesses whenever you can…from afar.  But most importantly, take care of you and yours, be kind, play by the book and stay safe.  x
