Our Cellar Door

We are THRILLED to announce that URLAR’s cellar door at 140 Dakins Road is now officially open! Join us every Friday to Sunday, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, for an afternoon with friends and family sharing our organic Wairarapa wines and seasonal country fare.

Hosted by Tess and Brian, they are excited to share the URLAR story and showcase our exceptional range of local wines made right here in Gladstone. Come along for a tasting or enjoy the carefully curated menu from our talented in-house cook, Susie. There may even be library wines available on certain days!

This project has been a huge effort from everyone involved, and the detail shows with unique pieces like our feature wall made from individual pieces of Farm Totara and a stunning deck overlooking the lake with panoramic views of the vineyard – the perfect spot to enjoy a drink in the summer sun, or on a warm winter’s day.

We look forward to raising a glass with you soon.

Address: 140 Dakins Road, Carterton
Bookings and walk-ins are welcome.
