Hawke’s Bay wine trials take in a vast variety of wineries, of which around 37, depending on the season you visit in, have cellar doors open to the public. These cellar doors are all unique and offer a chance to get to know the people behind the scenes as well as discover the diversity of styles and varieties produced in Hawke’s Bay.
Some of our cellar doors operate on a “By Appointment Only” basis. Others have standard opening hours whereby you can pop in. They do get busy sometimes, so it pays to call ahead and make a reservation, especially if you are a group of five or more. That way you can get the most out of your experience. Purchasing wine at a cellar door is a must do. You can take it with you or have it shipped home. The staff are always very helpful.
