Living in Russell, we thought we'd try Omata (this was a long time ago now) and haven't stopped going back!! During summer you can get the most delicious platters, and now with the evenings closing in a bit faster, their brand new wood-fired pizzas are amazing. The wines are great, especially the Pinot Gris which ranks right up there with... More

Having seen several Facebook local reviews we thought it time we gave it a try and are glad we did. Not a great range to choose from but our thin based meat lovers and marguerites were delicious. Vineyard tasting glasses lead us to order a bottle of the Pinot Gris. We would have chosen their delicious Rose but " sorry... More

Omata Estate well worth a visit. A nice selection of locally grown & produced wine. On Sunday's they serve home made wood fired pizza which looked very nice.

The last time I visited here was over 7 years ago. It was good then but was even better than I remembered it. The view is stunning and the wine is excellent and reasonably priced. We shared the tasting plate and a bottle of wine and it would be fair to say we were in no hurry to leave. Nor... More

Windy metal road down to a gorgeous setting for a stunning winery with sea views. The platters were outstanding and well priced and the sav was lovely. Excellent friendly service.

Did some wine tasting here and bought a merlot. Loved the syrah (shiraz) too. Friendly knowledgeable staff. The winery buildings are on the top of a hill with spectacular views. Well worth calling in!

A small vineyard near to Russell in a fantastic peaceful setting with magnificent views over Bay of Islands. Lunch outside on their terrace overlooking the vineyard after an enjoyable and informative wine tasting. Friendly and helpful staff. No need to be a wine expert to tell their wines are excellent!
