Head out to enjoy our Cellar Door & Lawn Bar, just a 35min drive from Auckland CBD. Open 7 days from 11am, you'll find an intimate space softly lit with stunning pendant lights and dark timber floors that creates a perfect setting to learn about the magic that happens behind the wines. With a boutique style range that features interesting wines (think Albarino, Lagrein and even Marsanne Viognier) as well as your classic go-tos from our Expressions wine range, our wines on offer can be enjoyed on site or taken away for sipping at home. For the hungry, relax in the Lawn Bar with undercover seating for a bite to eat and great beer to drink from our neighbours at Liberty Brewing Co Ltd. Also, visit the iconic Hunting Lodge Restaurant for a gastronomic treat, where the menu changes with the seasons, supplied by our on-site vege garden that currently has over 130 varieties of edible plants.
