Mercury Bay – NZ Wine Website of the Week


Mercury Bay Estate is owned by John and Lorraine Donelley and was formed from the vineyard established by Alex Morcom in 1996, named Shakespeare Cliff Vineyard and later spawned Cooks Beach Vineyard. The vineyard originally contained plantings of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc and took its original name from one of the landmarks in the area, the stunning Shakespeare Cliff.

Their current range of wines include varieties produced from fruit grown on their vineyards at Cooks Beach and from vineyards at Hawke’s Bay – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, a Rosé, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Merlot/Cabernet/Franc and a Cabernet/Merlot Reserve. Mercury Bay now offer a cellar door where locals and tourists can come and relax and enjoy the beauty they are so fortunately surrounded by, while tasting some of their wines.
