  • We visited as the last stop of a mystery weekend package and had a 2pm Sunday booking. We phoned in the morning as needed to be home earlier and they were very accommodating enabling us to visit...

  • Popped in as we had finished in Matakana earlier than expected. Lovely platter of snacks. The wine flight tasting boards are a lovely way to sample their wines. Recommend

  • Our group of 4 was looking for a wine tasting and lunch outdoors. I was disappointed when I called and found out that Plume was fully booked - but am now thankful as it meant we discovered Matakana Estate. The woman I spoke to on the phone was friendly and helpful. When we arrived they had set a table outside and put together two umbrellas to give us shelter in case it rained. Really appreciate the effort they put into ensuring we could sit outside. All four of us did separate tasting paddles and they had no problem with this, and expertly guided each of us through the tasting notes. We ordered the cheese and vegetarian platters which were impressive. Multiple other tables came over to ask what we had ordered. We were regularly checked on by the staff and they even offered to top up the platters as we went. They even had decent non alcoholic options, including Sawmill Bare Beer, which I appreciated as the sober driver. Seriously phenomenal service, great wines and delicious foods. Thank you very much - we’ll be back soon.
  • We went to Matakana last weekend, we visited 4 vineyards and I must say that each one of the experiences was incredible and the wines we tried were delicious. However, the wine tasting at Matakana Estate was our favorite! Even though it was raining, and we couldn't admire the landscape, we had an extraordinary experience with Serenity (manager on duty)... We tried all the available wine tasting, she explained to us about the wines we tasted and also answered all our questions (which were many). Serenity was one of our highlights of the weekend, we were delighted with her kindness, her knowledge about wines and about the winery, her charisma and her excellent attention! At the end of the testing we decided to buy 3 wines; Elingamite 2013 Syrah special edition wines (our favorite), Elingamite Merlot 2013 and a Reserve Chardonnay. Unfortunately our box was broken and we lost the Merlot and the Chardonnay. However we saved the Syrah so we can say that what Serenity told us about the Quality of the bottle of that wine was very true! We are sure that we will visit Matakana state and Serenity again soon... Thank you Serenity again 😊
  • Amazing service and delicious food. We went for an early wine tasting and the service was outstanding. We ordered a vegetarian platter and I have to say it was one of the best I’ve seen, so delicious. Paired well with the wine! Great to see a business embracing the Covid-19 rules well! I’d highly recommend this vineyard for all to visit. (19 March 22)
  • I went to Matakana Estate with several friends this weekend (19/03/22). We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We each got a different flight of wine and two of the platters. All of the food and wine was delicious. The service was also terrific. Everyone was very attentive and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
  • Beautiful~ hilly mountain range view! Great service and ambiance by the French man serving us, he was great 😊
