Wanaka Region

Enjoy food fresh off the land, matched with a fine wine and friendly hospitality while soaking up the spectacular views.

Lake Wanaka’s restaurants and cafes make the most of the abundant award-winning natural produce the region is renowned for. Their menus offer a taste sensation that reflects the delicious flavours of the region. There is plenty of choice, from exquisite fine dining to cosy cafes, making it a real haven for food lovers.

The region’s wines are renowned the world over while the locally brewed beer is world famous in New Zealand. Rippon, set on the lake edge, is arguably one of the most idyllic vineyards in the world. Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and pinot noir are all produced here and you can savour them at tasting rooms and on guided tours around the region.

From biodynamic wine to free range chickens and happy healthy pigs to deer roaming wild in the hills, the food tells the story of the region.
