Cable Bay offers a truly memorable vineyard experience – a cellar door for tasting award-winning wines, exquisite cuisine at our two restaurants and expansive lawns with breath-taking sea views.

Located on the stunning west coast of Waiheke Island, New Zealand, Cable Bay Vineyards grew from a vision to hand-craft outstanding wines from the highest quality fruit, grown in small lot vineyards.  Our first vineyard was planted in 1998 with Chardonnay and Bordeaux varieties – we now grow more than 10 different varieties and have received numerous awards confirming our dedication to producing expressive New Zealand wines, known for their subtlety, elegance and depth.

Our stunning venue includes the elegant, Dining Room with a menu offering fresh, vibrant and beautifully plated dishes which showcase seasonal produce from our organic kitchen gardens. The Verandah restaurant’s casual and contemporary setting offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu of sharing plates.  The venue includes a working winery, cellar door for wine tasting, private event rooms, and the beloved grass lawn with breath-taking sea views. Bean bags and outdoor seating provide the perfect spot to stretch out and relax.

Cable Bay has become an established venue, with an enviable reputation for our spectacular views, outstanding food and stunning wines.


The perfect introduction to one of Waiheke Island’s top vineyards. Learn about Cable Bay’s wine making philosophy that drives the creation of our award winning wines. Try four of Cable Bay’s current releases. A great interlude to enjoying lunch in one of our restaurants afterwards.
