We are closed

Our priority is to deliver excellent service and memorable experiences, but above all to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the tough, but responsible decision to close our cellar door, events and restaurant until further notice. You can, of course, continue to enjoy our wines in the comfort of your own home by ordering from us online.

We will not be reopening under level 2 but we will update our website when our doors open and full-service resumes.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sip a glass of Villa Maria wine on the terrace overlooking our Ihumatao Vineyard and the lake while you enjoy lunch or share a platter.

Our menus change with the seasons and feature only the freshest New Zealand produce.

We have vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options, and food suitable for children.
