Mills Reef Winery and Restaurant
Launched in 1989 by the Preston family, the Mills Reef brand has established itself as one of New Zealand’s premium labels, with a particular reputation for outstanding Bordeaux varietal reds and Syrah. Located on 20 acres of beautifully landscaped ground just five minutes’ drive from Tauranga’s CBD, Mills Reef Winery and Restaurant features full winemaking and bottling facilities, two underground barrel cellars, an aged-wine cellar, and spacious wine-tasting areas. An award-winning 150-seat restaurant completes the immaculate picture.
Mills Reef Winery is one of New Zealand’s leading Gimblett Gravels producers, and has won over 650 medals and 27 trophies nationally and internationally.
Cellar Door hours are 10am to 5pm, seven days a week. The restaurant is open seven days for brunch and lunch, but dinner reservations are essential.
