All the wines are made with grapes grown in our Mahurangi River Vineyard in the Matakana wine region just north of Auckland. As a small family run operation, our single vineyard wines celebrate the variations from one vintage to another, which makes each wine unique. This avoids the manufactured uniformity which characterises much of the wine available today. Our aim is to maximise the advantage of our soils, climate and topography to produce wines of elegance and finesse which will complement food and age gracefully. Careful vineyard and winery management in accordance with the principles of sustainable winegrowing are core values of the Ransom Wines operation.
In keeping with our philosophy of making food wines, our Winebar menu features fresh, locally produced fare providing a wine and food taste sensation. The menu has been carefully designed to accompany as well as keep the focus on wine. The preparation of foods served on the platters all happens in the winery kitchen. Our platters have a unique quality and freshness that sets them apart from the usual. The platters change dependent on the season with warm, comforting dishes in the winter and lively, refreshing salad dishes in the summer. Created to suit the size of your party or group, from two people to fifty two, this sharing aspect makes for a convivial food and wine celebration– you won’t be disappointed!
