Food And Wine

Tantalus State

Tantalus Estate is a destination sought after by travellers and locals alike. Set amongst the vines in the heart of Onetangi Valley on Waiheke, the beautiful restaurant offers guests a variety of areas to dine.

Relax and enjoy the spacious botanical courtyards, comfortable lounge areas, a light and expansive tasting room and the elegant restaurant and function room.

Hidden from the central dining area lies an intimate private dining room and wine library. There is even a craft brewery on the floor below. Everything is created from natural materials with hand-painted walls and chandeliers crafted from old vines.

The seasonal menu offers refined, tantalising dishes with bold flavours designed to complement the wine and beer made here. Add the unforgettable setting with sweeping vineyard views and you have it all.

Choose flights only or opt for our unique Heli-Dining package which includes a glass of Tantalus Methode Traditionnelle sparkling wine on arrival and a top notch 4-course à la carte lunch—we will arrange everything with a choice of heli-return or heli-ferry.

Depart from the North shore Aero Drome or from Mechanics Bay in Auckland, Auckland Airport or your own private property. Enjoy a stunning scenic helicopter flight over the glistening waters of the Hauraki Gulf with views of Rangitoto, Motatapu, and Motuihe Island before landing in the grounds of Tantalus Estate on Waiheke.

Return either by vehicle and ferry from Matiatia Wharf to downtown Auckland or by helicopter to your chosen location.
