Smith & Sheth Heretaunga Wine Studio

2, The Courtyard, Village Exchange, 4 Te Aute Road, Havelock North, Hawke's Bay

“The Heretaunga Wine Studio is an amazing adventure that engages all the senses.” 


Truly a one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience, the Heretaunga Wine Studio offers a private, sensory journey exploring major winegrowing regions across New Zealand in our intimate barrel hall and theatre.


Guided by our Sommelier, guests sample limited-production wines from our family of fine wine estates in the North and South Islands – Smith & Sheth, Pyramid Valley and Lowburn Ferry. We will awaken the senses through interactive storytelling, tasting a range of wine varieties and styles, drawing select samples from the barrel, and immersing in audio-visual delight.


$99 per person. Reservations are necessary and must be made 48hrs in advance to guarantee a place. Minimum booking is for two people, maximum eight people. Last minute bookings maybe available by calling +64 (0)6 650 5550.
