Overview
More
Te Mata's entire focus is fine wine production. There's no restaurant or accommodation here, only a small Cellar Door for tastings. It's open daily over summer, and Wednesday to Saturday in Winter. Coleraine House opposite the winery is on private property and the home of the Buck family - the winery's owners. We do try and leave them in peace and quiet when we can. :) Te Mata is an estate producer - meaning it grows its own fruit on this property, then ferments and bottles that wine onsite. It’s a 'one stop shop' for wine production and export - rather than a food or entertainment venue. Independent, and New Zealand family-owned for over 120 years, the winery and vineyards were the first in New Zealand to be protected under conservation law as a wine-making heritage site - the 'Te Mata Special Character Zone'. Five of Te Mata's Showcase wines are listed as 'Five Star’ and ‘Super Classic' in Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wine. The winery has been awarded Robert Parker's highest classification 'Outstanding Producer, Five Stars'. Te Mata Estate wines are available in 45 countries.

We've been here before but now this time with kids. A quick taste of our favourites and bought several varieties. We like the place due to location and memories- the wine is also very good

What a lovely place, and what a great people. They won't only spend all the time explaining everything there is to know about their wine, but will also give you enough (great) tips in the region to fill your weekend. Great experience!

By far the best wines we tried in the region! The Gamay Noir was a stand out and a must try. The cellar door isn't as grand as some in the region but the wine absolutely speaks for itself.
