Te Awanga Estate - Cellar Door

Rod McDonald Wines at Te Awanga Estate

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.  Our platters are built to accompany the wine and the views, and fabulous photographs by Richard Brimer completes the experience.

Open 11am-5pm, 5 days (Thursday-Monday) during October + November, 7 days December-April, and then 4 days (Friday-Monday) from May until the end of September.


Stay at Te Awanga Estate

Accommodation is available year round in our coastal vineyard apartment. Te Awanga Estate's Coastal Vineyard Apartment is situated above our cellar door. Experience the fabulous panoramic balcony views of surrounding vineyards, beautiful farmland and the changing colours of the Pacific Ocean with Cape Kidnappers in the distance. The sound of the waves lapping on the stony shore will be the only thing that disturbs the quiet tranquillity. Check out the view and the digs!

Cereal, milk, tea, freshly roasted local Hawthorne coffee beans with grinder and plunger provided in the fully functional kitchen complete with oven, microwave and fridge - for your delicious Hawke’s Bay wines!

We are close to the beach, four great restaurants, three other wineries, Cape Kidnappers and its international golf course. There are many good walks and cycle tracks nearby with excellent sea and river fishing, as well as local artisans and artists to visit in the Te Awanga/Haumoana area. The Cape View convenience store is a quick four minute drive down the beach front road.

The apartment is an excellent base to visit other attraction in Hawke’s Bay; we are located halfway between Hastings and Napier - the Art Deco capital of the world - although once you settle in you may find it quite hard to leave!
