Reviewed 25 March 2018

This one wasn't on our list for the day but we happened to be driving by and decided to stop in...and boy are we glad we did! This by far was our favorite, not pretentious, very relaxed, favorite wines of the day, great atmosphere! Our server was one of the wine makers because everyone else was gone..and instead of this being a negative it was fabulous because he knew everything about the wines! Loved the brick and wine barrels! Spent a small penny here on wines but no charge for the tasting!

John, Sales Director, did our tasting which was great fun with outstanding wines. A small winery that only produces 8-10,000 cases a year and sells all it can make. Didn't get to taste their Sauvignon Blanc as they had just sold everything to a Chinese wine merchant! The 2015 Hillside Syrah and 2015 Gold Label Cabernet Merlot were fabulous wines that were drinking now but could be cellared for another 10 years at least. John was a marvellous host who provided very generous pours while giving a rundown on the wines and the vineyard. A definite must when tasting in Hawke's Bay.

I went to several wineries in New Zealand and Brookhaven was my favorite. We sampled several different wines, all which were outstanding. Our host was very knowledgeable and was very entertaining. I highly recommend if you like wine and are in the area, this is the place you must visit.

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!
