About Us

Dancing Petrel Vineyard and Winery on Paewhenua Island, sits in the heart of Mangonui Harbour, Northland.

We fell in love with Paewhenua Island after spending a lot of time in the area and in 2012 bought the original cottage. In 2018 we made it home and at the same time bought the vineyard that surrounded us. We both love wine and are really excited to share a taste of Northland with those who visit.

The micro climate of Paewhenua Island combined with the north facing slopes provides fantastic growing conditions, producing wines we are really proud of.

Our wines have been getting very good reviews. Michael Cooper has given our Tannat a 5 star rating and the Cabernet Franc and Viognier 2019 4.5 stars. The Rose, Pinot Gris and Viognier 2018 are all 4 stars and excellent drinking.

We are open for tastings, just give me a call to organise a time for you to come and enjoy some delicious wine in the beautiful setting of Paewhenua Island. Call Kim 0212413221 for a booking.
