CUISINE NZ, ISSUE 117, July 2006

The same synergy between wine and food continues at Takatu Vineyard which now includes four superbly appointed rooms in a contemporary luxury lodge with natural stone floors, vaulted Macrocarpa ceilings and walls of glass. Guests can taste Takatu wines served with culinary treats from local artisan producers as well as home-cooked delights from Heather's kitchen and Takatu olive oil.

... "Architect Steve McCracken studied feng shui... and essentially the design is all about peace and balance, in harmony with the vines."
