Our Cellar Door & Wine Bar


We'll be opening our cellar door on Friday, May 15th exclusively for tastings and bottle sales. On Friday, May 22nd we'll be opening as a cellar door, bar, eatery, and live music venue! We will be keeping within the level 2 restrictions. If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, give us a call at 06 650 3353  or email manager@theurbanwinery.co.nz. You can also still purchase wine online and we're very excited to offer contact-free door delivery in Hawkes Bay for purchases of 6 or more bottles.

Located in the historic National Tobacco Company Art Deco building (known colloquially as the ‘Rothmans’ building), the winery features spectacular egg shaped concrete and French oak fermenters. These intriguing winemaking vessels produce extraordinary wines and never-before seen styles of Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay.

Tony's passion for all things Chardonnay can be seen through his selection of only the finest French oak barrels and large format vat which populate the cellar.
