Fodor's Review

Established by the Preston family, enhanced by winemaker Paul Dawick, and using quality grapes from renowned Hawke's Bay vineyards, Mills Reef Winery has built a fine reputation for its award-winning wines. The winery itself is a treat to visit; the spacious, landscaped, 20-acre complex includes an art deco–style tasting room and restaurant. You can dine alfresco on baked salmon, slow-braised beef, organic lamb rump, and a scrumptious range of salads, matched with classy Mills Reef wines, including the highly regarded Elsbeth range. Mains range from NZ$27 to NZ$38.The restaurant is open daily for brunch and lunch, and from Thursday to Saturday for dinner during the peak of summer. Dinner reservations are essential because the venue is often booked for weddings. The cellar door/tasting room is open daily 10 to 5 (except public holidays).
