Esk Valley Cellar Door set to Relocate.

The much loved Esk Valley Cellar Shop in Bay View Hawkes Bay is set to relocate to the Gimblett Gravels-based Te Awa Cellar Door in August where they’ll be offering a “new and exciting tasting experience”.

The new address will be 2375 State Highway 50, Roys Hill where a traditionally wide selection of Esk Valley wines will be available for tasting and purchase.

“Although it’s a time of change, we continue to craft wines of unique personality using traditional methods and the local knowledge accumulated over many years. Our aim is to capture the best of every vintage’ said Esk Valley Winemaker Gordon Russell.  “Esk Valley wines have been at the forefront of New Zealand wine since our first vintage in 1988. Renowned for our Merlot based Gimblett Gravels reds and The Terraces, Esk Valley has also been an industry pioneer bottling New Zealand’s first Verdelho in 2002, first Malbec in 1999 and pioneering the now well-loved Hawkes Bay Merlot, Malbec blend. We still hold dear to our artisanal values including fermenting all our premium reds in concrete. This is what makes Esk Valley wines unique and special” he continued.

“We welcome our loyal customers to come and see us at our new premises which we are planning to have ready by the second week in August.  We’ll let everyone know when we’re ready to launch the new space,” Gordon said.

In the meantime customers are able to taste Esk Valley wines by appointment or purchase from their website Or customers can call them on (06) 8727430 or email
