What to expect

Kiwis are known to be avid winemakers and drinkers and with more than 500 wineries throughout the country, it would be hard to not indulge in our top-quality vino. The first spot for wine tasting at Coopers Creek Winery has been a true pioneer in New Zealand. All the wines are expertly crafted from grapes grown with care and dedication in New Zealand's best wine-growing regions. Here you can enjoy a generous tasting of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Arneis, barrel-fermented Chardonnay as well as regional Pinot Noirs, a Hawkes Bay Syrah and Cabernet-based blends – A rustic setting with a flair for innovation and classic varietal wines.

Next to tempt the taste buds is located in the picturesque Ararimu Valley, Westbrook Winery's skilled winemakers produce iconic hand-crafted wines using time-honoured traditional and innovative techniques. Experience a guided tour of the vineyard and look into the winery with a special tasting of one of our special cellared library wines. Then enjoy a tasting of a selection of our current release wines.

The stunning destination restaurant, Cellar Door and Lawn Bar, and its incredible setting will woo your heart (and taste buds) time and time again. Inspired by the seasons where the wine and food experience evolves throughout the year. Award-winning Executive Chef Des Harris has created a fresh dining experience that will have you feeling at ease. Enjoy a three-course meal with matching wines. After satisfying your taste buds, next you visit one of the region’s special places. the Muriwai black sand beach. We make a stop to get amazing views along the coast and talk about what makes the west coast Auckland beaches unique.
