Well Travelled Bride Lake Wanaka Honeymoon Fine Dining

Fine DIning

In New Zealand, good food (and coffee) are high priorities. The food available is very seasonal and most is locally supplied, which we loved.  There is a fair range of cuisines despite the quaint town centre. It is definitely worth visiting the vineyards that offer food and platters. Bookings are often essential, especially if you are a larger group, so planning ahead is a must.


A visit to the region would not be complete without a long lunch and wine tasting at this beautiful winery. World renowned for exceptional wine and food you will be welcomed by the warm cosy atmosphere in the winter and the sophisticated vibe in the summer. Their philosophies extend beyond the wine making and tasting experience with delicious seasonal, locally sourced produce starring on the menu too. They have a fabulous “trust the chef” option which we think is rather perfect when you are on holiday and kicking back. It is a popular option with New Zealanders and visitors so it is always worth planning ahead and booking a table.
