Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan

Phone: 03 442 1090

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.


Amisfield Winery and Bistro

Phone: 03 442 0556

Located 15 minutes drive from central Queenstown, overlooking Lake Hayes and back dropped by the Remarkables mountain range, is the iconic stone building which houses Amisfield's Bistro and Cellar Door. This distinctive Central Otago wine complex integrates with the landscape through the combination of local schist, copper roofing and recycled hardwood timber.

Opened in 2005, the Bistro offers visitors a choice of a seasonal la carte menu or our signature 'Trust the Chef' menu - our famous shared dining experience - with dishes selected by the chef based on fresh produce available on the day. The food is an elegantly prepared expression of local seasonal ingredients and an ultimate complement to the wines.
