Plume isn’t just a restaurant, but also offers award-winning wines from their Runner Duck Vineyard and their pure Matakana grape juice. Being a vineyard restaurant, they will provide you with the opportunity to taste the French-inspired Runner Duck red Wines, alongside the New Zealand selection of whites and Rose at their Cellar Door. Tastings take place in a beautiful vineyard setting and their splendidly decorated cellar door.

Plume the vineyard restaurant, Matakana has a simple tasting plan with an opportunity to taste different combinations. You will spend a fun relaxing time with their wine experts sipping different varieties with specialised attention and care as you do.

Also now available at Plume Restaurant is their 100% Pure Matakana Grape Juice, which fills a long standing need in the community, and provides a delicious non-alcoholic option for diners. Runner Duck Estate has made their Grape Juice from the grapes growing on their Vineyard – Syrah and Merlot grapes - these are not table grapes but actual “wine grapes” picked at 18 Brix of the 2014 vintage, containing no added sugar or preservatives.

Pure Matakana Grape Juice is best served chilled, some like to dilute it a little with ice – some like to have it with soda for a “sparkling grape juice” and kids love it, and a very apt description for the Grape Juice from an Aussie tourist visiting for a Wine Tasting and lunch was “LIQUID DESSERT!” It is now available to take home at the Cellar Door of Runner Duck Estate at Plume.

Plume is a modern character restaurant with views over the rolling valleys below, providing the perfect backdrop for any occasion and is in a secluded area on the stunning Matakana Wine Trail. This autumn plan a brilliant day out, driving the short distance from Auckland to indulge in a wine and grape tasting before settling in for a magical lunch.

Offering both indoor and patio dining, Plume are open for Lunch Wed to Sun 11am-3pm, Wine Tastings 11am – 4pm Wednesday to Friday, 10am – 4pm Saturday and Sunday, Dinner 6pm onwards on Friday and Saturday, and for more information on wedding venue hire NZ, Auckland wedding venues and vineyard wedding venues NZ please go to .
