Frequently asked questions

Pask Winery

Of course you can! Our winery and Cellar Door can be found at 1133 Omahu Road in Hastings. As we are a working winery, we cannot offer tours of the facility but we would love to see you in our Cellar Door for a tasting!

All our wines are single-vineyard expressions, estate grown and bottled here in Hawke's Bay. All of our fruit is sourced from our 60-hectare Gimblett Gravels vineyard.

In 1998, Pask Winery became one of the first New Zealand wineries to achieve ISO 14001 accreditation. We believe that the only way to ensure the integrity of our wines id to own the full winemaking process and practice sustainable methods. That means sustainability is an all-encompassing philosophy for us.

Sustainable Winegrowing NZ™ is widely recognised as a world-leading sustainability programme and was one of the first to be established in the international wine industry in 1995.

Pask produces four ranges of wines, each carefully crafted to offer distinctive character and style. With the exception of the Instinct line, all Pask wines are estate grown and bottled.

Instinct is our aromatic range of market-led favourites. Developed to deliver distinctly New Zealand flavours, the range uses vibrant parcels of fruit sourced from New Zealand’s greatest wine regions to match our vision.

Our Pask Gimblett Gravels range represents the essence of our Gimblett Gravels vineyards. They are highly structured, intense flavoured wines with palate weight and texture.

Our Small Batch are wines that allow the winemaker to experiment with winemaking techniques as well as varietal and vineyard expression. These wines change year to year.

Declaration wines are powerful, elegant wines we declare as our best. They are only made in exceptional vintages.

General Questions

Our Declarations Red and even our Chardonnay age beautifully, so (if you can resist the temptation to crack them open) feel free to stow them away in a dark cupboard where the temperature doesn't fluctuate too much.

Already opened the bottle? No problem - wine id best enjoyed the day it's opened, but it can keep for up to 3 days if you store it in the fridge (whether it's red or white) as the cold temperature slows down oxidation. Just remember to take it out half an hour before pouring your next glass!

For those new to wine tasting, follow this three-step guide.

Start by looking at the wine. Take note of its colour, check for any sediment,
and see how it moves in the glass.

Next, engage your sense of smell. Start
by smelling the wine with your mouth closed, then again with it open. Notice any distinctions? Try to identify specific aromas like fruits or flowers.

Finally, take a sip and let the wine coat your palate. Take a second sip and observe any changes in taste. With the third sip, you should fully experience the wine's character.
