Our Cellar & Wineries

The estate is home to a 5,000 bottle wine cellar sprawling through three interlinked rooms. We believe that wine cellars are more than just places to store and manage a collection of vintages. We see it as an space that gives an intimate and deeply personal insight into Wharekauhau.  

We are proud supporters of our local wine country – Martinborough, and the wider New Zealand wine industry. We specifically seek out wines of high quality, integrity interest, and champion the smaller producer.    

In the cellar one will find the private ‘Sommeliers Table’ tasting and dining room. An exceptional spot grow your knowledge, explore new and rare wines, or learn a little more about our collection of Foley Wines & Lighthouse Gin under the personal guidance of our inhouse Sommelier.

Lodge owner Bill Foley is also the founder of Foley Wines. We share in his passion for vineyards that produce high quality wines each with a unique story of New Zealand to tell, our wineries are linked by a common unrelenting purpose; to make great wine that people love to drink around the world  – made by land & hand.
