Paroa Bay Winery

Located in the Bay of Islands, Paroa Bay Winery is a boutique estate combining luxury accommodation, traditional handmade wines, and a new restaurant, Sage.


We employ traditional techniques of viticulture and dry grown vines to create distinctive handcrafted wines of character in low yields, reflecting the white clay soils and warm climate of the Bay of Islands.

Come to the Cellar Door at SAGE today to sip our handcrafted NZ wines while enjoying the vineyard's heavenly atmosphere.

​On an estate covering 24 hectares of rolling hills, we currently have just 4.5 hectares of planted vines


Just 15 minutes drive from Russell in the Bay of Islands. Sage offers outstanding authentic Italian cuisine made with fresh local ingredients and excellent wines.
