Te Awa Winery Restaurant

We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed and memorable Hawkes Bay dining experience. Our menu provides a taste sensation of local produce with a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern leaning. The dishes are designed for sharing and can be enjoyed with the premium Te Awa Collection wines. Set amongst the lush vineyard backdrop, nestled in the heart of the Gimblett Gravels wine growing region, it is a must visit dining destination.

Executive Chef
Stephen Tindall

Stephen Tindall creates dishes with wow factor - the kind of food that not only looks great, but is just as pleasing to the palate.

His culinary skills have been expertly crafted by years working both in New Zealand and internationally. His career begun with formal training at Auckland Institute of Technology (now AUT) and has gone from strength to strength.

Stephen is well remembered in Hawkes Bay for his past successes at the Bayswater Bistro and Craggy Range Terroir Restaurant before which he kicked off his career in London. After five years working in Australia’s foodie capital – Melbourne – he’s returned to the Bay to share his culinary genius at Te Awa.


“Hawkes Bay is a real foodie’s haven; it has an abundance of fresh local produce few places can replicate. For me the opportunity to harness these fresh local flavours on a plate is an exciting one. Te Awa has the capability to offer the best of both worlds - fresh locally sourced cuisine and premium local wine all served up in an idyllic venue, it’s just spectacular!”
