Brookfields was the first vineyard we stopped at on our winery tour of Hawk's Bay. We were impressed that the owner's wife was our guide! The grounds were very beautiful, especially since there had been a wedding there the night before and there were still rose petals all around! Our guide took us right up to the vines and explained where they were at in the ripening process--ready to pick off leaves to expose the fruit to the sun. Then we went inside where our group had our own room for the tasting. There was a little explanation about each wine that we tried--pinot gris, chardonnay, sirah, sauv blanc and a dessert wine. There were a few quiz questions with the winners earning a free bottle of wine! We could tell that all the wine was well made, though it was not to our taste. Still, the beauty of the winery and the dedication of the winemaker made the visit very enjoyable.
