Mills Reef Winery was established in 1989 by the Preston family. Through commitment and dedication to excellence, Mills Reef has established itself as one of New Zealand’s premium wine brands with a particular reputation for outstanding Bordeaux varietal reds and Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay.
Our winery is located at 143 Moffat Road, Bethlehem, Tauranga, New Zealand and was completed in 1995. The Art Deco style architecture is a reflection on Hawkes Bay, and specifically Napier – the Art Deco capital of the world.
Mills Reef Winery is a major Tauranga landmark and has frequently been acclaimed as one of the most stylish and attractive winery buildings and wineries in New Zealand. Set on 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, the complex boasts full wine-making and bottling facilities, two underground barrel cellars, an aged wine cellar and spacious wine tasting areas.
An award-winning, one hundred and fifty seat restaurant completes the picture, providing an ambiance which complements fine wines and cuisine.
Mills Reef is also the ideal setting for weddings in Tauranga, as well as conferences and presentations.
