Autumn VinesPukeora was once a hospital, now hospitality is the name of the game.

The Venue is the ideal centre to hire for an event.

    The extensive indoor facilities are available for exclusive hire and represent extremely good value for money. They comprise sleeping accommodation for groups, large reception areas and classrooms, a commercial kitchen, and a pool.

    Groups of 20+ can be accommodated either with meals/bar service provided or on a self-catering basis.

    We offer wine tasting at almost anytime but we recommend making a prior arrangement to avoid disapointment as we can be hard to find at times. Small group tastings are generally very casual on our home verandah.

    We can provide wine tastings and or meals / tea breaks for groups in our stunning café

    Many and varied activities are available on site or nearby

    Check out the amazing variety of settings as a film location

    2013 Vintage is now finished. A wonderful harvest of ripe, clean fruit. The reds are showing fabulous deep dark colour. The whites are undergoing wild ferments in barrels with some lovely aromas wafting through the winery. Pity it will be a long few months before these wines will be ready to bottle but hopefuly patience will be rewarded.

    A stunning hillside vineyard and vista is the ideal backdrop to the winery, function and convention venue and group accommodation centre ...
