Thank you to Christine who was or friendly and knowledgeable hostess for our wine tasting. We chose the five dollar wine tasting, but were able to taste a more expensive range too. The venue is wonderful. Christine so nice. Wines delicious! We will definately order dome to have at home!! A big highlight!

Only 10km from downtown napier so no real reason not to visit. A wee oasis nestled against the hillside. Plenty to sample at a tasting session, lovely calming atmosphere, and a choice of inside or out depending on the day.

We enjoyed a comfortable tasting and lunch, with commendable recommendations for lunch options. Christine looked after us and was very accommodating on such a busy day. Staff were knowledgeable on products and easy to talk to. Thanks for making our day!

Overwhelming class in the building and grounds. They boys had the MOST WONDERFUL wine tasting experience, shout out to Ann, they talked about her for days, while my baby and I were treated with respect, given toys and free rein to play outside! (oh and the wines are devine!)

Stopped in for a look-see and stayed for two glasses of very drinkable wine and a cheese board. The sun was out so sat outside at the tables under the sun shade. Very pleasant indeed. Lovely to see people picnicking on the grass.

This is a review I should have done a long time ago - But anyway. here I am, The Church Road Vinery does not only provide excellent vines at very reasonable prices. In addition to the vine tasting and subsequent purchase (I guess...) you can also enjoy a superb lunch in the garden behind the vinery ... Go there -... More

We went as part of a family group for a wine tasting and received great treatment . Even the small children were occupied with a box of toys while the adults talked and tasted. Mitch, our cellar door person was very knowledgable and helpful and great at assessing our personal preferences . Which is good as this winery has several... More

Beautiful entrance and view from the doors out on to the fields and the hill. Ample parking spaces, a good selection of wines and reasonably priced too! The male wine staff member seemed to know the wines well and had the descriptive vocabulary to impart his knowledge. Came away with some souvenir wine.

We would have spent all afternoon here and had lunch, but we were on a wine tour. I fell in love with the atmosphere of the huge rough sawn beams etc. The wine was fantastic and the food looked amazing as it was served to people's tables. Warm and toasty on a rainy, stormy day. - very romantic!
