A land of ancient forests, people and legends. A beach that stretches further than you can imagine. Sunsets too beautiful for words. This is New Zealand’s Northland, the country’s warmest region, the home of Okahu Estate and a unique and challenging location for winemaking
Monty Knight leads a team of dedicated people passionate about wine making in the far north of New Zealand
Terroir, the French word to describe the place the wine emanates from,
has no exact English equivalent. It sums up the climate, microclimate,
soil, topography, location, elevation, the winery, its people and wine
making techniques and its distinctive taste and feel.
Okahu Estate’s Winery is a limited production facility focusing on port. All of the remaining brands Okahu and Shipwreck Bay are made by contract with the local Northland wineries.
The Cellar Door
Okahu Estate’s Cellar Door offers free tastings of their award winning
wines. There are cellar door prices, case discounts and a selection of
their rare and hard to find wines.
Okahu is located 3.5km from Kaitaia on the Awarora Rd (the road to Ahipara, the little village at the southern end of 90 Mile Beach).
Okahu’s six acre estate vineyard is on the corner of Awarora Rd and Okahu Rd, latitude 35.08ºS with the winery's frontage off Okahu Road. The elevated site slopes west nor west, with impressive rural views, out to the sand hills of 90 Mile Beach and Shipwreck Bay. The proximity to the beach provides a maritime climate with the predominant winds from the west
