At Mahana Kitchen, our professional and friendly staff will greet you in our striking modern space, which combines with the tasting room, lawn and courtyard. It is the perfect place to spend an hour or two absorbing the atmosphere, as it is in the heart of the vineyard surrounded by our famous views. In warmer weather, a courtyard table on the patio lets you look right out across the vineyard to the Nelson Ranges and Tasman Bay. In cooler weather, our spacious indoor seating areas, enhanced by our inviting fireplaces, are great places to enjoy lunch and a glass of wine. Visit our Tasting Room to try our wines beforehand or afterward to purchase wine to take home with you.

We invite you to explore the scenery and linger in the sunshine with a glass of wine and skillfully prepared cuisine created by our Executive Chef Alistair Forster. We source local ingredients and where possible uses vegetables and herbs out of our own garden to create fresh, seasonal cuisine.

We are open daily for lunch and wine tastings and dinner dining on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. At the weekends we open earlier for brunch dining so there really is something for everyone at Mahana Kitchen.
