We are so thrilled to announce our new official partner - Man O’ War wine! This incredible winery has joined our community to provide us with wine for all of our events for both customers and staff, giveaways, and possibly even gift boxes on the horizon.
Man O’ War planted their first vines in 1993 and today there are more than seventy five vineyards spanning across their scenic farm on Waiheke Island. They make incredible Syrah, Chardonnay and signature Bordeaux Blends that they have become well known for. Man O’ War also produces a beautiful and distinct Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and of course a wonderful Rosé. Above the creation of their wine, Man O’ War works hard to respect the diverse agricultural land they grow on. At the vineyard you’ll also see orchards, olive groves, restored native forests and beehives. This allows their cellar door restaurant to follow a true farm to table ethos.
Man O’ War takes a lot of care in making their wines, ensuring they produce the best of flavours and quality. All of their vines are carefully looked after and always harvested by hand, they then go on to be vinified individually which combines traditional techniques with clever and innovative ideas from the modern world.
A trip through Auckland isn’t complete without a visit to Waiheke Island and Man O’ War’s stunning winery. You’ll be picked up from the ferry and taken on a scenic tour of the Island by Man O’ War’s bus. Breathtaking views and incredible wine will be waiting for you on arrival at the winery.
You really cannot beat this place on a sunny weekend! In summer they have DJs and live music playing while you sit out on the lawn basking in the sun and eating their delicious food and great wine. It's such a great time and a beautiful change of scenery for us Auckland city folks! Such a treat for special occasions and birthday outings too!
We absolutely adore Man O’ War’s beautiful wedding venue on Waiheke. They are the only beach front tasting room and events pavilion on the island which will make your wedding an amazing experience for all involved. There is seating for up to 120 guests and the flexibility for as many or as little decorations as you desire.
Keep a look out for Man O’ War at stores near you and follow us to be the first to know about events and tastings we do with these incredible wines. We can’t wait for you to try them!
