Our passion for quality is reflected in everything we do from the award-winning wines we produce to the wonderful venue and facilities we offer
Villa Maria’s Auckland winery is situated on 40ha of picturesque land in Ihumatao.
The site itself, spanning the base of an extinct volcano, is planted in Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Verdelho and Albariño vines and groves of exotic and native trees.
The vines and trees create superb parkland around the winery and create an ambient and tranquil setting for functions and events.
