Our winery tour of The Abbey was thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and provided a delicious platter to accompany the tasty wines we were able to sample. The tables in the garden provide a relaxed location to enjoy your wines amidst the nearby vineyards. A worthwhile visit

Went for the winery but I found the beer much more to my liking than the wines. The whites are decent to OK. I was not too crazy abut the reds but I think with time (as their vines age) the wines will improve. I really enjoyed the beer though: Fat Monk. great name and great label. I enjoyed them... More

As a home brewer I was obliged to make the journey out onto the hawkes bay Plains to visit the fat monk brewery. While I didn't try any food- the full beer tasting tray did not disappoint. The beer was fresh and delicious on a hot and breezy day. The setting is very nice too amongst the vineyards and surrounding... More

With a live band playing on Saturday afternoons and a wine or beer tasting for $15 plus excellent pizzas this is a relaxing way to get to know the local drinks

Started the tasting circuit with Abbey Cellar. The host was friendly and the wines decent. This circuit needs some fore planning as there are many wineries along the way and you need to pace yourself.

Family run business with lots of love and care. Have tried and visited many wineries but this one is superb! Set in middle of its vineyard the Abbey cellars are a must visit when in the area. The quality of wines is absolutely immaculate. The wines for tasting are offered and the quantity is not in question (as most places... More

We had a lovely cheese platter in an outdoors patio area with a beer tasting paddle and a glass of wine. Very friendly and accomodating host in a relaxed setting - perfect for enjoying the hospitality! They had cellar door specials on which made wine to take home very reasonable (and popular judging by what we saw)!
