Nestled in a sheltered valley of shimmering olive trees with row-upon-row of colourful vines, the picturesque vistas surrounding Stonyridge are reminiscent of the South of France. It’s the perfect place to share a marvelous luncheon, for that special occasion; or simply on a relaxing summer’s afternoon.

After a stunning flight across the beautiful Hauraki Gulf in one of our luxurious helicopters, you’ll be greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles upon landing at Stonyridge Vineyard. A luscious luncheon awaits you at the vineyard’s world renowned Veranda Café . An optional extra is to depart via a scenic loop of the Skytower and Rangitoto Island.

“This is one winery café that’s everything you want a winery café to be,” writes Joelle Thomson in the NZ Herald. A place with an exotic, romantic ambience where Pacific meets Mediterranean food. Sip on a glass of Stonyridge Larose - a first-class, Bordeaux-style red wine - while enjoying the most amazing, pristine views.

The summer menu has been created by Chef Roland Dale, whose culinary talents and sense for simple, fresh ingredients is the power of Stonyridge cuisine. He’s joined by an outstanding team of wine connoisseurs who will endeavor to make your visit to Stonyridge the most memorable ever.
​It’s no wonder that the UK’s Guardian newspaper voted Stonyridge “One of the top ten MUST VISIT wineries in the world”.
