Welcome to our café which overlooks the vast blue Pacific Ocean and the North Cape of New Zealand.

To the north Puheke/Puwheke, Mt Camel and the furthermost reaches of New Zealand/Aotearoa can be viewed on a clear day, with Matai Bay and Cape Karikari to the East. 

A glass of Karikari Chardonnay served with our great choices of delicious platters on the terrace, dazzled by the Pacific vista, could just be one of the most unforgettable taste experiences you will ever have

Our Cellar Door is a great opportunity to taste selected varietals and vintages. You will learn more about our wines, our history and you can benefit from great deals.
