14265 Taihape Road, Sherenden, Hastings District, Hawke's Bay

Hawke’s Bay’s only earth-brick winery. We are situated on the Napier-Taihape Road, a relaxing 20-minute drive from Taradale or Hastings through scenic pastureland. We are a small family-run business, owned and operated by Tony and Kaye Prichard, and Gracie, the Winery Dog (our self-appointed Welcoming Committee). We produce small volumes of high quality wines with the emphasis on elegance, texture and balance. We have a quirky mix of grape varieties which allows us to create a full range of wine styles from Methode Traditionnelle Blanc de Blancs, simple and complex white wines, a selection of lesser known (in New Zealand) red grape varieties, through to a Sauternes-style Noble Viognier.
