Northland is one of the country’s ‘food baskets’, with superb seafood, fresh produce and grass-fed meats, and is a rising star as a wine-growing region.
At The Landing, your daily menu will be designed to suit your tastes, requirements, mood and itinerary by our head chef using the best seasonal ingredients from the property and region, served in the privacy of your Residence, or packed to take on your day trip for a picnic lunch. If you love to cook, you can tour our orchards, vegetable and herb garden and free-range henhouse, choosing your own fruit, herbs, vegetables and eggs for a self-catered meal, or spend an afternoon with our head chef learning cooking techniques using our produce or your daily catch from the ocean. At the Sunday morning farmers’ market in the nearby town of Kerikeri, you can purchase fresh local produce, and honey and olive oil farms, an artisan bakery, an award-winning cheese and yoghurt maker, and a boutique chocolatier are found nearby.
The Landing Wines are known for their beautifully crafted tropical fruit and mineral flavours, given depth and complexity by Northland’s long, warm summers and coastal aspect. From vine to bottle, every step of the wine-making process takes place on site, starting in our 23-acre vineyard and finishing at our state-of-the-art winery. Whether you are a guest staying at The Landing or a visiting enthusiast, our vineyard staff can take you on a guided tour of our Rosé, Syrah, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot plantings, before you spend an afternoon tasting the results at our beautiful hilltop winery designed by Cheshire Architects, with sweeping views over the property. For guests of The Landing, we offer the opportunity to secure “en primeur” sales of new vintages from the barrel.
