Tried some of their local fijoa cider that is superb and then followed a great pizza. Sad to say that we attended on their last day at this venue but we have been assured that they will reopen ASAP at their new location opposite

Best winery! Can't believe I've only been here once! Sad that it's moving, hope it will be up and running again soon!! Pizza is delicious, drinks are yummy (highly recommend the feijoa cider brewed by the owner!) and the staff are amazing!

The wood fired pizza was lovely and enhanced by the friendly and laid back atmosphere, free sample of their great fijoa and apple cider and a delicious fijoa liqueur spritzer. Sadly did not have time to do the winery tour.

We stopped in to try some of the liqueurs and were rewarded with an informative and entertaining experience complete with some really tasty drinks (the feijoa liqueur in particular is worth the trip). The restaurant was quirky and while the pizzas smelled great, we didn't...More

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". In 2009 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 Our bar in the Coromandel invites you to enjoy all our homemade products: Cider, Wines, Long Drinks and (in winter) Mulled Wine as well as a wide range of national and international beers. Relax in our family friendly environment under the kiwifruit vines, enjoy the sun in summer, sit next to our brazier in winter or find a cosy place inside close to our potbelly stove. + Table Tennis, Table Soccer, Darts, Petonque, Kubb (Viking chess).
