We have been for lunch a few times and we keep going back because the setting is very peaceful, considering you are so close to Auckland Airport.Our food we have ordered has been of a very high standard.The wine and the menu is very well priced.

Wonderful to walk around this attractive vineyard with ripe grapes ready for harvesting. Lush green lawns and nature trees. The guided tour was very informative and well worth doing. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We had our work staff awards at Villa Maria Auckland Winery. It is a wonderful place with spectacular grounds. The venue is spacious and quite central and they have plenty of parking. I really enjoyed our night there.
