What people are saying

about Pohangina Valley Estate wines...

"I am pleased to report that the Pinot Gris we had the other night had an impressive 'grip', a breadth of flavours, length and dry finish on my palate. Well done Pohangina Valley crew!" Denis Asher 

Agust Andresson of Saudarkrokur, Iceland has visited NZ seven times. He was given a bottle of our Pinot Gris in Iceland and when he opened it he said, "the smell and taste was everything NZ and bought back all the memories of people and places visited."


about Pohangina Valley Estate as a wedding venue and group outing...

With the grapevines and your lovely garden as our back drop, your winery was a perfect venue for us to hold our wedding service in February.  Our friends thought it was a fabulous idea to enjoy your wines while the service was conducted.  Your great organising and friendly service made it a very stress free time for us.  The perfect venue, the customer service, and the wine made it a perfect day.

Fiona, thank you for all your help.    John & Susan Woolnough


I would like to congratulate Pohangina Valley Estate for organising a wonderful wine tasting event for our group. Everyone enjoyed the short stopover, and some were reluctant to leave. The atmosphere was great, not over the top but just right, everyone was able to sample the wines at their leisure and enjoy the tasty nibbles provided. The visit fitted in well with our afternoon bus trip to various sites around the greater Manawatu district, including the wind farm, and a great prelude to our dinner at the Herb Farm. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Pohangina Valley Estate as a wonderful place to visit and taste the fruits of the vine.  Des Costall - Ag Research



and about our Extra Virgin Olive Oil...


"It is beautiful and natural. I use it as a sauce for pasta."  Bruce Cable

“Silky on the palate”  Simon Wishnowsky

“The aroma, taste and colour are like a freshly cut hay paddock”  Tracey Kitchen

"Last year we had an Italian exchange student staying with us. He was very disappointed with the standard of olive oil we got from the supermarket. So we took the opportunity to try Pohangina Valley olive oil which he really enjoyed and thought was as good as the olive oil from Italy."  Ross Crawford

"As soon as you see the rich green colour pour from the bottle, all you want to do is smell and taste it's goodness and purity."  Connie G - Wellington
