About Us


(open til 4pm on 24.12 & closed 25.12 + 26.12 )



The Purangi Winery was established in 1985 the 37th Winery in New Zealand. The Evans Family who moved from Hong Kong were welcomed as settlers by the district in 1966. After buying land from the Harsant and Wigmore Families and opening and operating the Hahei store and later in 1972 the 60 acres where the winery is located was farmed running pigs, cows, sheep and goats, then planted supplying the Auction Markets with table grapes, kiwifruit, garlic and fresh produce. When the land was cleared originally organic principles were adopted. Our products are made in the traditional manner with purest ingredients hence the company name Purangi Estate Ltd or “PurEst”.


 We are in the process of relocating our whole winery and Bistro business from its old well known location to our actual farm on 501 Purangi Road. It's only 250m down the road, closer towards cooks beach on the left hand side.

The new winery site will have an amazing view over the Purangi River, Cooks Beach and the Mercury Bay. Due to the weather conditions and the slow winter season we will be closed until further notice to get everthing ready for the next summer. We will keep things updated on our website and facebook. We are sorry for any inconvenience and apologize to everyone who might miss out this winter.

THE EATERY (not open at the moment)

2008/09 we built a wood fired pizza oven and launched the Purangi Winery Pizzeria which has been more and more popular. We produce many of the ingredients for the pizzas, making the pesto and pizza sauce and using a wide range of fresh herbs and vegetables from our garden.

We try to keep it simple and have something for everyone. We customize our pizzas so that YOU want to eat it.
+ Gluten free and Vegan options available.
+ Fresh seasonal additions on our specials board


 No bookings required: first come - first serve, though we appreciate a 'heads up' for bigger groups.
