Popped in here to try the Silkman wines, sadly the ones we wanted to try, the Shiraz - were sold-out. We did try others, and my friend bought a few bottles of a new Shiraz that had been delivered that day. Altogether, not as good as our previous vineyard visits

We have been club members for quite a few years and every time we visit Small Winemakers centre they are always friendly and have a great knowledge of their wines. One of our favourites is the Little Wine Co 2015 Rose but the David Hook Reserve sparkling Rose is also a good drop. I thoroughly recommend a visit.....

We like the small boutique wineries & this place showcased wine from 5 winemakers, extensive list. They had about 40 plus wines & the cellar door staff helped us navigate our way through. What I like is that you can try 5 'sems' from the five wine makers, plus we tasted some interesting varietals. Toy box to amuse my little... More

We were recommended by family to drop in and I'm glad we did. We didn't have high expectations and were a bit cautious on approach but as soon as we entered the environment made us relaxed. This was what we were after. The young, friendly staff member Giles knew his wines. He was one of our top staff we enjoyed... More

The beauty about the Small Winemakers Centre is that you can sample/buy wines from a few top boutique winemakers. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive. We were able to buy the award winning wine we wanted, not possible to buy elsewhere. Happy!

We saw the Small Winemakers Centre on our way to Brokenwood and were not disappointed when we decided to drop in. Very friendly and knowledgeable service from Robert. Great wines from Thomas Wines, Silkman Wines and David Hook. A fair few with 95+ James Halliday ratings and reasonable price tags.

Due to TripAdvisors rubbish scales I have to start with this preamble. Please don't think that this 4* is anything other than VERY good! The team were fantastic especially given the fact we arrived close to closing time. Suzanne helped us from the outset and she was fabulous. A wealth of knowledge but she has an incredible way of sharing... More

Janet ... the lovely sales attendant at the Small Winemakers Centre is worth her wait in gold (well, maybe after she has the twins). Providing great knowledge, patience and all round good grace in helping compile a suitable set of mixed wines for client gifts, Janet, is certainly an added jewel in the crown here. With a choice of quality... More

I did not like this venue for several reasons- 1) the lady serving us was bored, uninterested and not at all passionate about the wines. This is the problem with wines being presented by other than the estate 2) the wines were being dispensed out of a machine with a lock mechanism away from the serving counter - meaning the... More
