Te Whai Bay Wines

One of three boutique vineyards in the Brynderwyn Range, Te Whai is the newest of the trio – owners Nicola Deveraux and John Burt had their liquor licence granted in early 2014 and the tasting room has just been completed ready for summer. It’s easy to find as the large home vineyard stretches right to the roadside.
