Fodor's Expert Review Brookfields Vineyard
One of this region's most attractive wineries features rose gardens and a tasting room that overlooks the vines. The Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are usually outstanding, but the showpiece is the reserve Cabernet Sauvignon–Merlot, a powerful red that ages well. Syrah grapes are proving spectacular as is the Brookfields Hillside Syrah. From Napier take Marine Parade toward Hastings and turn right on Awatoto Road. Follow it to Brookfields Road and turn left. Signs will point to the winery.
