Te Awanga Estate

376 Parkhill Road, Te Awanga, Hastings District, Hawke's Bay

Te Awanga is a special piece of dirt.
Planted 25 years ago by a group of friends in one of Hawke's Bay's oldest wine growing areas. They dreamt of making the region's greatest wines. We're still working on it but believe our vineyard by the coast truly captures something unique.
Te Awanga Estate is a range of single estate wines that are rich, mouthfilling and long-lived. Situated on an elevated site in the Te Awanga foot hill, the cellar door has views down through our 42 acres of vines, across the Te Awanga basin and out to the wide blue Pacific Ocean.
And if variety is meant to be the spice of life, then we are a veritable vindaloo! Taste your way across all the Rod McDonald Wines labels – Trademark, Quarter Acre, One Off, Te Awanga Estate and One Off.
We serve platters built to accompany the wine and the views, and our walls are adorned with fabulous photographs by Richard Brimer.

And drop by for our Sunday Sessions on the lawn - our wine, their music and your vibe. Summer in Te Awanga at its finest!
Entry is $5 at the gate, kids under 14 are free, bring a picnic rug, sit back, relax, and tuck in to our world-famous-in-Te-Awanga pizzas and platters. No BYO thanks or we'll be in big troubs!
