This beautiful, peaceful, non-commercialised winery (not a 'wedding venue'!) is almost a one-man operation with the owner sitting at his dining table with you to talk about - and sample - his excellent wines. The quality of all is first class and being only a short, very scenic drive from Auckland deserves to be visited by anyone who really appreciates a good glass of wine. Their website is also worth a visit if you need any information about wine or grape growing.
Not sure about the 'siting with the owner bit' - afraid you will be embarrassed at your lack of knowledge or be pressured into buying vast amounts? Fear not - you could not have a more genial host and you will WANT to buy wine, even if only a few bottles! Visit! (open weekends or phone)
