Description: The Purangi Winery was established in 1985 the 37th Winery in New Zealand. The Evans Family who moved from Hong Kong were welcomed as settlers by the district in 1966. After buying land from the Harsant and Wigmore Families and opening and operating the Hahei store and later in 1972 the 60 acres where the winery is located was farmed running pigs, cows, sheep and goats, then planted supplying the Auction Markets with table grapes, kiwifruit, garlic and fresh produce. When the land was cleared originally organic principles were adopted. Our products are made in the traditional manner with purest ingredients hence the company name Purangi Estate Ltd or "PurEst". In 2009 we built a wood fired pizza oven and launched the Purangi Winery Pizzeria which has been more and more popular. We produce many of the ingredients for the pizzas, making the pesto and pizza sauce and using a wide range of fresh herbs and vegetables from our garden. We try to keep it simple and have something for everyone. We customize our pizzas so that YOU want to eat it. + Gluten free and Vegan options available. + Fresh seasonal additions on our specials board Our bar in the Coromandel invites you to enjoy all our homemade products: Cider, Wines, Long Drinks and (in winter) Mulled Wine as well as a wide range of national and international beers. Relax in our family friendly environment under the kiwifruit vines, enjoy the sun in summer, sit next to our brazier in winter or find a cosy place inside close to our potbelly stove. + Table Tennis, Table Soccer, Darts, Petonque, Kubb (Viking chess).

Incredibly generous tastings. Unique products. Knowledgeable and passionate proprietor full of wonderful stories. A great Kiwi experience. We had the vegetarian pizza which was wonderful, even though it could have been left in the wood fired ovens a few more minutes. We washed it down with the fabulous feijoa and apple cider. The outdoor surroundings are rustic and charming. The tables are set under kiwifruit vines, hanging with fruit. Great spot, well worth a visit.

Ordered some food and there was a mix up getting the order to the kitchen so it took a long time and we needed to remind them. The staff were very sorry and the owner gave us a free round of drinks for the kids and some wine so it was a great save. Lovely venue and even squeezed in a game of table tennis. Wood fired pizza. Kids liked the ketchup and aioli.

If you are looking for something a little different from the overpriced & pretentious cafés & restaurants I would definitely recommend the Purangi winery. We went there for the last night of our holiday and enjoyed delicious pizza and chips sitting underneath the kiwi fruit vines. The host guy was very friendly and chatty. Good selection of wines and beers. Yes the service was a bit random but we were relaxed after 10 days at the beach so It didn't matter! Loved it - will definitely go there again next time we are in the area.

We had a delicious pizza lunch at the Purangi Winery. I like the limited menu options - pizza or pizza with chips! We sat out under the shade of a kiwifruit vine and watched as our pizza was popped into the pizza oven, then brought straight to our table on a wooden board when it was ready. And the pizza was scrumptious. The wine drinker in our group tried a Purangi Sav with the pizza and enjoyed it so much we had to go into the wine cellar so she could purchase a couple of bottles. And we were encouraged to try the feijoa liqueur, which was so tasty that we had to then buy a bottle to share with our friends back home! Good for families as there is plenty of outdoor space for kids to roam about, plus a table tennis table indoors.
