Turanga Creek

A little zigzag drive from Auckland’s south-eastern suburbs will get you here in a jiffy. Once you arrive, you’ll appreciate the tranquillity and serene landscape. The cellar door is rustic and inviting, and quietly dramatic. Naturally, the place has become a popular venue for weddings and functions (it pays to check during summer weekends for closures due to private events). The vineyard is fully certified organic and biodynamic, and offers a wide range of elegantly expressed wines.

Things To Know
Down to Earth wine bar, with indoor and outdoor seating, offers small and large plates of delectable comfort food. Pizzas and platters are served on Friday nights.

Our Picks
Pinot gris and viognier are varietally pure and lip-smackingly delicious. The popular Signature Syrah delivers bags of fruit and Rhône-like savoury complexity.
