Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan

Restaurant & Cellar Door

Akarua Wines and the team from Artisan share similar principles….put simply to deliver the best wine and food experience to our customers that we can.

Wine is made in the vineyard and Akarua’s belief is that our land plays an integral part in producing the premium Central Otago wines that we bring to market each year. Likewise Artisan views the ingredients as the key to delivering food that is their signature.

A passion for hand crafted cuisine that’s made from scratch is a philosophy that makes the Artisan kitchen tick, using some of New Zealand’s finest sustainable ingredients sourced in and around the four coasts of our South Island.

The food coming from our kitchen is honest, comforting and social with a focus on quality, taste and seasonality helped from Central Otago’s local growers.  Our food matched carefully with the purity of Akarua wines combine to create a memorable dining experience.

Enjoy the beautiful garden setting and the historic cottage which we have lovingly restored – whether it’s for a coffee and breakfast or for a shared lunch over wine with friends, we look forward to welcoming you soon.
