This is the hottest place in town at the moment and a great edition to the area. Thank goodness La Zeppa actually has a decent wine list, yummy tapas and good looking patrons. The wines are well priced giving a good selection from $38+.

The Merlot Wine Café in Central Auckland is a very romantic cosy restaurant, with candlelights and smooth jazz playing. Simple but delicious home cooked style meals, serving almost 100 different NZ wines, many by the glass, getting constantly great service. Booking recommended.

Yes, it is a place for posers and overweight men doing business deals, but Soul Bar & Bistro’s wine list is impressive; the food is delicious; and oh—there’s that fabulous Viaduct Harbour view and it’s a suntrap on a fine day.

An oldie, but a goodie. This place is a gem with a small but well selected wine list that places emphasis on the more well known varieties. Tabac’s environment is intimate and the service renowned in the Central Auckland scene.

The Vintry in Matakana is not just any place and we don't sell just any wine, but the wines are available in any quantity you could desire.

All the wine we sell is very specifically, and very proudly, grown in the Matakana geographical indication.

The Vintry is designed for informal, relaxing wine consumption and retail. Our bar is decorated with used barrel staves, and our tables are made of rough-sawn rimu beams sourced from an old shearing shed. The floor is concrete and we have a real wood fire to warm the space in the cooler months.

If you’re tired of the boring lists that seem to be replicated around town, then you’ll want to try the Wine Loft. They have an extensive range of Old World and New World wines, and are experts at describing these wines. If you’re unsure, then opt for a tasting.

A new and very welcome addition to the Kingsland fold. This French-style wine bar’s proposition is simple: to offer a great selection of boutique NZ & French wines and assiette’ (plate in French). The owner, Julien, certainly knows his stuff—and is happy to advise.
