The Tasting Room

The newly renamed Tasting Room at Villa Maria is for wine lovers, colleagues, family and friends from near or far to gather over a glass of wine. The fresh new layout changes the way we host, opens up the space for storytelling and tasting experiences, seated or standing. To complement our wine offering, we have partnered with Collective Hospitality to create a delicious small plate and platter menu designed to hero our wine with subtle flavour profiles, presented vibrantly and on-trend. 

Chef James has this to say about his culinary creations “My personal favourite is the Wakanui Beef served with red fruit, charred onion pearls finished with a coffee and thyme oil that I paired with the Reserve Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, 2018. The wine is a beautiful expression of richness and depth with intense red fruits making the beef dish a perfect match.”

Opening times

We will be open Tuesday – Saturday 11 am - 7 pm with reservations recommended. Please contact us for parties of 8 or more as capacity is limited.

Vineyard Walking Trail

Allow 30-35 minutes at a leisurely pace (2km)

This self-guided walking trail has been designed to showcase the unique attributes of our vineyard park, which is set in a volcanic crater that is more than 20,000 years old. Simply follow our six ‘point of interest’ trail markers which will start from outside the Cellar Door (see map inside). 

At the completion of your walk sit back and relax in The Tasting Room with a glass of our award-winning wine over lunch or visit the Cellar Door to take a bottle of wine home. 

Please be aware that Villa Maria is a working winery. Machinery may be operating around the grounds. Children should be supervised at all times.
