Our unique 80 acre estate is located just 35mins drive from the CBD in the heart of Auckland’s wine country. With a Cellar Door, Cafe, roaming gardens, event spaces and our newly opened Restaurant, as well as a fully functioning winery and bottling works, The Hunting Lodge has it all.

The history of the Hunting Lodge building goes back to 1868, so almost everyone in the area has a yarn from over the years. The current owners’ story goes back to the 1970’s, seeing their children grow up amongst the vines. They’re proud to be able to share this beautiful site with you and let the stories continue.

So whether you choose to play petanque in the Family Zone surrounded by the olive grove and kids play area, or find a romantic spot amongst the vines, this vineyard garden is all about truly delicious wine and food that can be enjoyed in a backdrop that makes memories of any occasion.
