Join us at the 2017 Hawke’s Bay Charity Wine Auction

We’re auctioning off an exclusive full barrique of Church Road’s only Malbec….

Church Road are delighted to once again be involved with the 2017 Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction.  This year we are offering a full barrique of 2016 Gimblett Gravels Malbec.  The only Malbec we produce at Church Road, and for the last two years sold exclusively through the Hawke’s Bay Charity Wine Auction. This is a deeply coloured, dense and aromatic, full bodied red with layers of dark fruit and a firm yet fine grained tannin structure that promises excellent aging ability.


Applauded as one of New Zealand’s premium wine events, the Auction is a true celebration of Hawke’s Bay with an abundance of unique wines, amazing art, and extraordinary experiences.  Come along and taste some superb wines, chat to many of the country’s finest winemakers and growers, then raise your paddles and bid for the offerings that capture your attention.


Saturday 11th November, 1.00pm – 5.00pm at Hawke’s Bay Opera House Plaza


Limited tickets available for $50 + gst per person from
