Looking for an escape for the weekend? Matakana Estate has everything you need for a relaxing destination to recharge and relax. 

The Estate is only a 1-hour drive from Auckland CBD and provides one of the most luxurious lodges in the region to truly indulge and treat yourself.

The cellar door with a jazz club vibe.

Spend your time wine tasting at the newly renovated cellar door. The space oozes with rustic charm, from the cascading fairy lights to the botanical barrel light fixtures. Their wine list includes estate-grown Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris as well as other varietals sourced from Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. During the summer they will be serving a snacks menu on weekends in case you are feeling peckish and lookout for Saturdays with live Jazz music to serenade the guests enjoying a glass of vino. Immerse yourself with beautiful countryside surroundings and great service.
