Spanning across the top of the North Island, the greater Auckland region and Northland are among New Zealand's oldest wine regions, offering something special for every palate.
The Auckland region is a vast, geographically diverse area, and is home to some of New Zealand’s largest wine companies, as well as a many exceptional boutique producers.
There are three distinctive sub regions close to Auckland city: the island of Waiheke, historic West Auckland, and just north to the coastal enclave of Matakana. Further north, around 2.5 hours drive from Matakana, you will find the Northland region, home to New Zealand’s first vineyard plantings in 1819.
Known for powerful, intense red wines – Red blends in the North and on Waiheke Island, also known for stunning Syrah - plus world class Chardonnay and fine Aromatics, the modern Auckland wine industry continues to shine.
