Sorry, our cellar door is closed for the winter.
However, all our wines are also available for tasting and purchase at the Rimu Wine Bar in the new Shed 4 complex on the Mapua Wharf:
404/6 Aranui Road, Mapua 7005
Ph. 03 540 2580
Or, for online bottle and case sales please visit the buy wine page.
The Rimu Grove Cellar door is located in an old pickers bach* set at the top of our vineyard with a stunning view down over the Waimea inlet and out to sea. If you roll up to the Cellar Door and nobody is around, don’t worry, just press the button at the door and one of us will soon materialize out of the vineyard to help you out.
Since we are such a tiny operation, you’ll either be served by one of us who make the wines or, if we’re too busy out in the vineyard or down in the winery, then you’ll be taken care by one of our awesome and knowledgeable cellar door staff. And even if you’re already familiar with our wines, do still drop in and pay us a visit and pick up one of our Back Vintages only available through the Cellar Door.
* Bach - /ˈbætʃ/. A bach is a small, very modest holiday home or beach house. Baches are an iconic part of New Zealand history and culture. "Bach" was originally short for bachelor pad, but actually they often tended to be family holiday homes. As Wikipedia puts it “essentially a bach is something you built yourself, on land you don't own, out of materials you borrowed or stole.”
