Popped in for a wine Sunday afternoon. We stood around for a little bit without being acknowledged so decided we would find a table outside. Still nobody came to greet us so we eventually asked for a drinks menu. We asked the waitress for some...More

Great experience, only 50 minutes from Auckland. Nice 2km walk on sculpture trail to work up an appetite. The service was friendly and warm. The shared platter was good, but not quite a full meal.

Description
Discover a new world as you gaze down on The Glass House, hovering like a coloured jewel beside the vineyard, cantilevered over the waterlily-fringed lake. This unique building is open daily year round, where you can choose to taste our range of wines, enjoy a glass as you relax on our generous decks or simply purchase bottles to take home. We're excited to offer you our fresh new menu, showcasing local produce and seasonal ingredients. Do come and experience dishes that we love and flavours we are passionate about. Download the Menu> This is truly a building for all seasons as you watch the birdlife on the lake on a summer's afternoon, or feel the fury of winter as the rain lashes the lake and sends the overflow beneath you in a veritable waterfall. Metres away are the vines, with the building's transparency letting you possibly observe the pruning process, leaf-plucking, fruit thinning, and if the time is right, the harvest itself!
