AKARUA WINES & KITCHEN BY ARTISAN
Akarua Wines and the team from Artisan share similar principles….put simply to deliver the best wine and food experience to our customers that we can.
Wine is made in the vineyard and Akarua’s belief is that our land plays an integral part in producing the premium Central Otago wines that we bring to market each year. Likewise Artisan views the ingredients as the key to delivering food that is their signature.
A passion for hand crafted cuisine that’s made from scratch is a philosophy that makes the Artisan kitchen tick, using some of New Zealand’s finest sustainable ingredients sourced in and around the four coasts of our South Island.
The food coming from our kitchen is honest, comforting and social with a focus on quality, taste and seasonality helped from Central Otago’s local growers. Our food matched carefully with the purity of Akarua wines combine to create a memorable dining experience.
Enjoy the beautiful garden setting and the historic cottage which we have lovingly restored – whether it’s for a coffee and breakfast or for a shared lunch over wine with friends, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

An absolutely fabulous meal!
Had an absolutely fabulous lunch at Akarua Wines & Kitchen. We both chose the pimento and lemon seared scallops, fried calamari and chorizo jam as entree. Superb! Our main was a shared plate designed for two of half confit duck, with crispy roasted skin and tamarillos. Delicious.
The beautiful 2018 Akarua Bannockburn Pinot Noir was the perfect accompaniment!

Must go spot in Queenstown!
Akarua delivers on outstanding food, wine and service every time we visit! The cottage is gorgeous all year round for breakfast or lunch. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here with wine tasting and lunch and we were totally spoilt.
We started in the cellar door with Allie. She’s very passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to wine and she helped us pick the perfect bottle to take home. Our lunch was incredible; the bread, scallops, duck and side dishes were perfect! Jemma recommended them all along with the best cocktails and wines to go with our meal.
Thank you Akarua – we can not wait to come back! The Akarua team produces amazing, fresh food all year round and is such a great place to relax at on the weekend.
