Our story

Owhanake Bay Estate has been producing medal winning wines since 2006. Among our accolaides are bronze, silver and gold medals and a trophy.

Mike Taylor tends the grapes closely for the full season, as all good Dads do.

Christy and Mike live at Owhanake Bay Estste, along with their two children, one of whom was born in the homestead in 2006. Both children attend Waiheke High School, and are involved in the vineyard at various times.


Wine is available for purchase at the Harvest Shed or online.
