A Vine Romance

Matakana is an enchanting, fast-growing community, which lies just one hour's drive north of Auckland & is home to an eclectic mix of artisans, bakers, winegrowers & entrepreneurs who have formed a formidable new foodie destination.

The Farmers' Market & village shops, a unique cinema, Tawharanui National Park (3 magnificent unspoiled beaches) & award-winning Takatu Lodge & Vineyard are some of the many highlights the region has to offer.

Arriving at Takatu you will be greeted by a breathtaking landscape, manicured lawns & perfect rows of grapevines, all framed by massive glass sliding doors & windows that make the most of the blue skies & the vistas.

"We don't see a separation between life & work, we are energised by both." Heather Forsman, Owner, Takatu Lodge & Vineyard
