The Man O’ War Tasting Room is
the only beach-front cellar door location on Waiheke Island

Begin your visit with an adventurous drive along a gravel road, encompassing wide landscape views from the tops of hills, to lush, sub-tropical forests.  The idyllic Man O’ War Bay is located at the very Eastern end of Waiheke Island. Showcasing our current release Flagship and Single Vineyard wine ranges alongside select limited library stock wine it is a must-do on your Waiheke itinerary.

Upon arrival you can enjoy a tasting of our range with our friendly, knowledgeable staff in the colonial ambience of the Tasting Room where our sustainably sourced solid Kauri bar takes pride of place alongside our wines and the vintage photographs, maps and art that lattice the walls and tell the story of Man O’ War’s legacy, land and wine.

Wile away the afternoon relaxing on the rattan furniture under the shade of the verandah or enjoying a shared lunch on the expansive lawn whilst soaking up the views over the bay to the Coromandel coastline interrupted only by the Pohutakawa tree perimeter which itself is a beautiful sight when in seasonal flower and the source of our delicious honey.

We are a family friendly premise with activities for the kids (and adults) such as lawn cricket, petanque, skittles and swingball. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.
