Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant
One of Auckland's most famous vineyards, it's not just wine-tasting you'll get here, but a full fine-dining a la carte restaurant, and a winery tour. Serious wine buffs will love it.
Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant is a living, breathing example of how, with a lot of love and oodles of belief, anyone can live their dream. Bought by Nick and Robyn Jones (with absolutely no experience in the industry), in 1992, Mudbrick has been turned into one of the region's premier wineries.
Wine tastings are conducted at the Cellar Door and the real aficionados can even sample a premium grade wine tasting, to see if they really do know their Malbec from their Syrah.
Visitors are encouraged to stroll at their leisure around the vineyard and exquisite gardens, and delectable snacks can be had at both the Cellar Door and the Wine Bar/Bistro, where you can nibble on some olives al fresco, washed down with a cheeky little Cabernet or two.
Mudbrick's wines are best appreciated accompanied by a gourmet meal in the award-winning restaurant. Most dishes are created with locally-sourced Waiheke produce (such as the Church Bay Lamb and Te Matuku Bay Oysters), and the Mudbrick Cheese Selection is a real treat (if you've any room left...).
Mudbrick's knowledgeable waiting staff are on hand to recommend appropriate wines to complement your meal, and there is even a children's menu, so the whole family can get involved.
For those wishing to indulge in the complete Mudbrick experience, there are a few self-catering houses for rental, both in absolutely stunning Waiheke locations.
Mudbrick is a stunning wedding venue just 35 minutes by fast ferry from downtown Auckland. The restaurant dining room is versatile – depending on the setup, it is an intimate space for 40 or enough room for 126 with a bridal table.
The Mezzanine Floor has a capacity of 20 guests. Situated upstairs from the restaurant dining room, this room has beautiful views and opens onto its own private outside deck which is great for small ceremonies, drinks and canapés. Semi-private seating area perfect for a small wedding
