Food and Menus

While Plume’s menu essentially reflects local cuisine it also celebrates New Zealand’s cultural diversity and new thinking based in an essentially rural vineyard setting. We like to think our dishes fuse the flavours of global kitchens with New Zealand’s own traditional heritage.

We have an open style kitchen where the chefs are an integral part of our guests’ experience. Our wait staff’s friendly youthful rural bent is backed by a genuine desire to make your visit a memorable one on your wine and food journey.

Our chefs prepare everything in our kitchen from scratch. Their focus is on fresh, seasonal produce set within a friendly relaxed atmosphere.


Gorgeous food – will be back.
