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.

Stunning food and atmosphere
This is the place I would most highly recommend in Queenstown. We had the most incredible lunch there – stunning, delicious food, beautifully presented. Atmosphere is fantastic, we sat in the beautiful outdoor gardens and the staff accommodated us so nicely. Will DEFINITELY be going back (more than once).

Beautiful and relaxed wine tasting and lunch
My husband, another couple and I booked at Akarua for a wine tasting and lunch, on the recommendation of a friend. We were staying in Wanaka for a long weekend and were really looking forward to a relaxed long lunch in the sun (under the shade of the big umbrella thankfully!). The atmosphere and staff did not disappoint! We enjoyed an informative wine tasting experience and a beautiful, relaxed lunch. We purchased wine to take with us, and we still talk about how great it was a month later!

Best Lunch Spot in Central Otago
This is without a doubt, the best place to have lunch in the greater Queenstown area.
We now visit at least once every time we travel to Queenstown and it just gets better and better.
The food is exceptional, and the service so friendly and attentive.
Definitely worth a visit
