Three generations of the Wuerker family have lovingly cultivated the farmland at Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery. The sandy soils and ocean breezes provide the perfect conditions for great grape growing. Vineyard guests taste our diverse collection of wines at the extra-long mahogany bar and meander through the vines with bottles of wine and picnic baskets. Tastings are educational and enjoyable. Please join us, our tasting room is open daily, year round with live music, tours, and a lunch menu on select dates.

A nice and friendly winery that is just perfect for a large or small group. The wine selection is very good. My favorite is the Riesling. The tastings are great and the wine educator is very knowledgeable and friendly. The grounds are very nice, looking forward to attending one of their Rootstock concerts in the vineyard next summer. The sunset... More

Nice small Winery. 8 tastes and a glass for only $10. Tasting room staff were friendly and knowledgeable concerning their wines. Wines are a bit pricey but still bought a bottle to take back to the hotel. Nice!

Visited three wineries this past Saturday and this was the best of the three we visited - staff were informative, enjoyed the wine tasting along with a bottle and cheese plate after out under the tent with a beautiful view of the vineyard and the staff working on some of their recent harvest. Would definitely return!

The wine tasting is $8 for 8 wines ($10 if you want the glass). All wines are dry. They are very good and are inexpensive - most are between $12 & $17. They have some more expensive wines, but they are not included in the tasting, which suits me fine because I don't like to pay more than $20 for... More

The owner really goes all out to make the experience fun and educational. This was our second trip to the Winery since our first visit in June was so memorable and we also finished all the wine we bought. My husband and I spent "Sangria Sunday" on their covered porch under the misters sipping awesome sangria, sampling cheeses and listening... More

I visited this winery with two friends of mine. You can do a tasting, get a glass of wine from the tasting menu or order a bottle. Ryan was great! He listened to what we would like and made confident recommendations. He was very friendly and comfortable making conversation with us. His recommended the 2014 Tempranillo ($29) which turned out...

Great wine, lots of outside seating during warm months and the wine prices are reasonable. A nice variety of red, white, sweet and dry.

We arrived at 1:15 on Thursday Sept 1. There were lots of cars in the lot and as we approached the building, a couple exited carrying a bottle and two glasses towards the covered area out back.
