Enjoy Church Road Wines Responsibly


There’s no “T” in Wine  

Church Road Winery, Tom McDonald Cellar         

Church Road are passionate about wine and food pairing.  Not afraid to push the boundaries, they’re taking things one step further with this event and bringing tea into the mix – but not your standard English Breakfast!  Partnering with Wellington-based t leaf T, the Church Road team have created a thought-provoking four course menu that heroes wine and tea.  Each dish will be handcrafted by Jenny Parton, executive chef of Dish Contemporary Cuisine, and will incorporate t leaf T’s high quality infusions using various culinary techniques.  Each course will be accompanied by a carefully selected glass of Church Road wine and cup of t leaf T tea. Chris Scott, Church Road Winemaker, and Sarah (Saz) Scanlan, t leaf T ambassador, will guide you through each pairing. All of this whilst being entertained by local duo The Bostons on acoustic guitar. 

$160       includes glass of Church Road Méthode Traditionnelle on arrival, a wine & tea matched four-course small plates-style menu with matching wine and tea, entertainment

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.
