Ake Ake Vineyard

Just 5 minutes from Kerikeri, a visit to Ake Ake Vineyard is an excellent way to sample the best food and wine the Bay of Islands has to offer.

At our boutique vineyard we specialise in growing and making award-winning wines from grape varietals such as Chambourcin, which are best suited to the Far North's climate and terroir.


If nobody is at the Cellar Door please phone 021 2650687 or honk your car horn loudly and we will be with you in 2 minutes.

Tastings $8.00 per person or free if you purchase wine or have lunch in the restaurant.  A $8 charge may apply to groups of 10 or more.  

At our cellar door we offer tastings and sales of our Ake Ake wines. 

Vineyard Trail

We have a self guided signposted trail through the vineyard which is FREE for all our customers. Its about 1 km long with information about the vineyard along the way. - Please note the trail at present is closed for maintenance.


The Vineyard Restaurant is renowned for serving fresh seasonal local produce to produce dishes that are honest, wholesome and full of flavour. Lunch and dinner menus adapt to the flavours of the seasons and are constantly evolving whilst maintaining a common thread. Service is relaxed yet efficient in a welcoming, friendly environment. Set amongst the vines the restaurant is an ideal place for lunch, dinner and functions. In the summer we have a lovely outdoor deck area and in the winter, the fire is roaring, giving the restaurant a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. 

Ake Ake is perfect for weddings and private functions.
