Lake Wanaka Food & Wine

Imagine enjoying a tasty lunch of freshly baked artisan bread, filled with handcrafted cheese, smoked fish fresh out of the lake and accompanied by a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc made from the vines you can see across the lake.

The Landing Restaurant
16, August 2011
Local food and wine producers are passionate about their fare and what better way to connect with that passion than at the weekly Farmers’ Market on the lakefront. Everything from honey to bread, organic vegetables to the finest cuts of Cardrona merino lamb and the best sausage in New Zealand.

The vibrancy of these fresh local ingredients is reflected through the menus of the many restaurants, cafes and bars. From fine dining to relaxed café food, local cuisine is a melting pot of flavours and styles with the common theme of using the best ingredients from the land.

Horses at Rippon Vineyard
13, May 2010
For true epicurean bliss, food is only half the story. The region’s wines are renowned the world over while the locally brewed beer is world famous in New Zealand. Wanaka’s oldest vineyard, Rippon, set  on the lake edge is arguably one of the most idyllic vineyards in the world.  Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and pinot gris are all produced here but it is pinot noir that is the king. Savour it at tasting rooms around the region, or take a guided food and wine tour and really discover what makes Lake Wanaka’s flavours sing.

Check out the Wanaka Farmers Market held every Thursday, 4pm - 6pm.
Summer (Nov - April) at Pembroke Park on the lakefront (corner of Dungarvon / Ardmore St)
Winter (May - Oct) inside at the Pembroke Mall on Dunmore St
