James Taylor & his All-Star Band Live in Concert at our home in Hawke’s Bay

Iconic singer-songwriter James Taylor will return to New Zealand for the first time in seven years and we are thrilled to play host to this musical legend on February 5th

Church Road Winery has a history of staging concert events spanning over 20 years. Starting with the NZSO followed by many jazz concerts before moving into hosting more mainstream artists with wider appeal. The stunning grounds of our winery will play host to music legend James Taylor and those fortunate enough to secure tickets (check out for all details).

With a career spanning nearly 50 years since first signing to The Beatles’ Apple Records in 1968, James Taylor’s music embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal forms, resonating with people all over the world, while his warm baritone is among the most recognized voices in popular music. James has sold more than 100 million albums, earned 40 gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards and five Grammy Awards, with his Greatest Hits album earning him the prestigious Diamond Award given for sales in excess of 10 million units in the USA.

We can’t wait to hear him in the outdoor open air venue at our home in Hawke’s Bay. The natural amphitheatre setting with park- like grounds has been extremely popular and enjoyed by many locals and visitors alike over the years, and having James Taylor perform here is an event we are all looking forward to.
