Waiheke's newest resident, Tantalus Estate, is certainly worth a visit off the mainland.
Located in the fruitful Onetangi Valley, the newly-restored Tantalus has fast become one of Waiheke's most beautiful dining destinations.
Sitting proudly on eight hectares of unspoiled land, the estate uses the best of that unmatched Waiheke Island sun, made even more striking by the ornate lights that decorate the estate's interior, crafted from repurposed vines that hang dramatically overhead.
Those visiting for lunch are treated to a menu dreamt up by head chef Paul Jobin, who has led kitchens in Australia, Manhattan, Long Island, Bratislava and Prague, and spearheads the acclaimed local restaurant Pure Tastes, a culinary drawcard in the sunny Bay of Islands.
This week, we're giving one lucky Dish reader the chance to enjoy a stunning Private Reserve Wine Tasting for two in Tantalus Estate's Wine Library, followed by a three course lunch with wine or beer pairings in the estate restaurant, valued at $300.
This competition has now closed.
