The secret to a great, world quality artisan New Zealand wine is a perfect vineyard site and a dedicated French-trained master winemaker. Frenchmans Hill Estate has both. You'll find us on Waiheke Island perched above Putiki Estuary on the Te Whau Peninsula. The vineyard has been producing high quality wines and olive oil since 2010. During our open season, come and make a day of it. Take the Waiheke ferry and come taste our award-winning NZ artisan wines with a tasting platter. Tour the vineyard and take home a cellar-worthy wine and some beautiful fresh olive oil. To find more information on our artisan wines and olive oil click here.
