Tantalus Estate is a family owned, premium vineyard destination located in the heart of Onetangi Valley, Waiheke Island. Situated on 20 acres of vineyards, olive and macadamia groves, beehives, and native wetlands; the Estate is also home to its own winery and craft brewery both featuring leading-edge technology and best practice sustainability. Tantalus Estate winery is fully accredited under the New Zealand Sustainable Winegrowing Programme. Winemaker, Alex Perez, combines traditional winemaking techniques with new-world innovation. Our hand-crafted blends are complex and interesting, concentrated and textural, destined to age, as they slowly evolve into elegant wines.
Unlike typical vineyard destinations, this multifaceted venue is home to the Tantalus Estate restaurant with world-class cuisine, a welcoming cellar door, and the incomparable Alibi Brewer’s Lounge – an underground craft brewery bar. With welcoming botanical courtyards, a glass house with spacious lounging areas, and a boardwalk that traverses the native wetlands nestled at the heart of the property, Tantalus Estate is an unforgettable setting that caters to all. Boasting national awards in hospitality spanning dining, cuisine, architecture, and design; and international accolades for wines and craft beers, a visit to unlock the secrets of Tantalus Estate is an experience not to be missed.
