Re visited this boutique winery free 23 years was great, our hot was so full of knowledge
And happy to sit and talk of the winery. While other wineries charged for tastings, this winery was relaxed, fun and plenty of wine tasting. We did buy lots of wine . Put this
Winery on your list as it's lovely and small,

My family and I toured five wineries in the Hawke’s Bay Area of New Zealand on Dec 29, 2017. We drove down the driveway of Brookfields Vineyards in a cool, damp mist and were instantly welcomed by the warm hospitality of Sharon, one of the owners. She told us the history of the vineyard that she and her husband own, and shared intimate knowledge of the wines. She sat with us at the table while we tasted and regaled us with tales of running a small family winery. When we bought wine, she told us our tasting was on the house and even gave us a bottle of Malbec. When we told her and her elderly dog, Legend, goodbye, it was like leaving a family member. Take the time to stop by this vineyard. You wont regret it!

What a hidden gem, this small winery is a must. The hostess is the owner and a real care and love is shown. The pours are generous and the family who run it fair in prices. Loved the Syrah. Thanks

We arrived beleaguered and thirsty, but Sharon changed all of that with generous pours and unforgettable insights on wine and the meaning of life, among other things. I can't recommend this winery enough. Their malbec is excellent and pairs well with a risotto!!

Cheers!!

I love this place so much. Was introduced to the wines first when I arrived in NZ eight years ago. Visit every time I am in the Hakes Bay. The setting isn't as grand as you get with some of the multi million dollar buildings of other known wineries. Instead you get a very personal wine tasting with either Peter of Sharon and you really get to appreciate and gain knowledge about what has gone into every bottle while drinking some if not the best wine in NZ. You won't be disappointed though maybe a little poorer after visiting as you stock up your cellar.
