Went to Poronui last year. All I can say it was top notch. The Stags were massive. I got a great 350 class stag and my father in law got a 430" stag. The rooms are great, the food is second to none. I only wish I could go back. Spent one day in wine country, that was a blast. I have never seen a place like this. The entire place is a post card. I flew from Atl Ga so it was a long ride, but I would do it again tomorrow. Only wish I had went trout fishing. Mistake on my part. If you go make sure you try the Sika deer steaks! On a scale of 1-10 , really a 11. We left with 2 great stags, 2 great sika, a fallow, ram, and a life time of memories. Trip of a life time. Oh yeah get them to show you the Blake house and the wine cellar.
