Paroa Bay Winery


Nestled in a beautiful setting amid the hills of Paroa Bay near Russell, Paroa Bay Winery is a new family owned boutique vineyard combining luxury accommodation and traditional handmade, sustainable wines.


We employ traditional techniques of viticulture and dry grown vines in the hope of creating distinctive handcrafted wines of character in low yields, reflecting the white clay soils and warm climate of the Bay of Islands.

On an estate covering 24 hectares of rolling hills, we currently have just 4.5 hectares of planted vines including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot.

We would like to invite you to sample our current wines, the excellent 2014 Chardonnay, 2014/2015 Sauvignon Blanc, 2013 Syrah and CMC (Cab Franc, Cab Sav, Malbec), as well as sample 2011 and 2012 Pinot Noir from our sister winery – Urlar in New Zealand, amid a tranquil setting and perhaps take a stroll along the vineyard walkway and spot native birdlife.



This private, world-class retreat offers a safe, clean, green refuge and is nestled amongst some of the most breathtaking natural landscapes in the world, including seven hectares of gardens, lavish accommodation and extensive recreational facilities spanning along a sweeping coastline.

Vineyard Cottage

The vineyard cottage is a two bedroom / two bathroom (with additional optional bedroom) house set among the peaceful rolling hills of Paroa Bay and a 10 minute stroll to a secluded beach. Visitors can enjoy strolls surrounded by acres of landscaped gardens, native trees, birds and vineyards and enjoy all the comforts of this first class home.
