Waiheke Island is renowned for producing world-class red wines and more recently white wines as well. Our vineyard, planted in 2000, is producing superb wine and we were a finalist in the Esvin Innovation in Wine Awards 2008. Our focus is on quality wine rather than volume.
Owhanake Bay Estate includes luxury accommodation, a boutique vineyard, an olive grove, a small citrus and stone fruit orchard, berry gardens, vegetable gardens and flower gardens. We use fresh organic produce from our gardens in the guest rooms and for guest breakfasts. We also use flowers from the garden and roses from the vineyard in our guest rooms.
We delight in giving guests private tours of our vineyard. The vineyard comprises mostly Syrah vines, along with 1000 Pinot Gris and Flora vines. Our focus is on growing the best possible grapes to produce high quality wines unique to this special location.
It is, of course, just a short stroll to the beach below the estate and there are some beautiful short coastal walks which start at Owhanake Bay.
