Food & Wine

We are a very privileged property to be in such a food-centric locale.

We grow many of our own fruits, vegetables and forage the estate for various wild produce. Wharekauhau is also in the unique position of being linked with one of the fastest growing vineyard companies in New Zealand – Foley Family Wines – which provides us access to a fabulous library of fantastic wines. Additionally, being 30 minutes by road from what many describe as the premier Pinot Noir region of New Zealand means we are quite literally PERFECTLY situated for those looking for food & wine experiences.
