Wine Tasting

Whether you're a wine professional or an avid enthusiast we have tasting options to suit.
Our experienced team will guide you through tutored tastings of our current release wines, the odd hidden gem and the elements of Black Barn that make us a popular visitor destination in Hawke's Bay. Our Cellar Door also offers a range of wines for purchase, including rare wines that you won't see anywhere else. We offer wine tastings throughout the year with our Cellar Door open seven days a week.

Cellar Door Tasting
