Wine tastings are free with lunch or purchase of wine. The restaurant (mains $28 to $34, lunch platters $25 to $48) is one of Northland's best, but phone ahead for opening hours outside of the summer months. Free overnight parking is available in the vineyard grounds for self-contained vehicles, and there's also a 1km self-guided walking trail exploring the vineyard.
