Hi there, NZ$225. Well worth it. You start at 10 am with coffee and freshly baked pastries. From then on its eat fabulous food and drink beautiful local wines. All while watching and participating ( if you want) with Lou and Ant who are just the most marvellous hosts. My daughter and I have done two courses and plan to work our way through the rest at two yearly intervals. Oh....don't plan on driving back to CHCH afterwards..... You will be a bit tipsy and over the alcohol driving limit....and why would you want to leave beautiful Akaroa? Make it a long weekend and enjoy.
