We invite you to experience the essence of this special place, the soil, the river, the vines, the air and the sea.

We are a produce driven, winery restaurant in the singularly beautiful Hawke’s Bay, proudly one of the largest organic growing regions in New Zealand. Executive Chef Regnar Christensen and the Team behind him are passionate about finding the freshest seasonal ingredients and interpreting them.


We source our ingredients directly from small farmers and artisans to build strong relationships and learn the story of the produce, so we can share it with you. Our dishes are stripped back and elemental, to truly showcase the complexities and brilliance of our ingredients.

Our bar reflects the best wine and spirits from New Zealand and beyond, from small distilleries to the classics we love. Unlike many winery restaurants, we welcome walk ins, so we created our bar menu for those times when you feel like a lighter meal while you enjoy the view with a drink.

Are you making a reservation for 15 people or more? Please call us directly, we love big groups and we will make sure we look after you properly. 


Black Barn has forever been a place for the community, bringing people together for special events in beautiful surroundings. This is part of our ethos and our identity.

We have the joy of offering our our award winning Bistro to act as your venue for weddings and other functions, a role we love to play.

If the Bistro doesn't suit your requirements, Black Barn Vineyards have four other stunning and unique locations to offer, so we truly have a venue to suit every occasion.

​To give you some more information, we have attached our wedding and function information packs, and to find out more about what we can offer you, please reach out to our Wedding & Events Manager Felix Bijl, who can help you with any enquiries
