Man O' War Vineyards

Man O' War Vineyards

Man O’ War is steeped in history dating back to early Polynesian adventurers. The protected cove has provided safe harbour during many rough seas. The bay was named by navigators in the late 1700s. The magnificent Kauri trees we’re noted in the early shipping journals, they made ideal masts for the naval Man O’ War warships, and thus the name Man O’ War was bestowed upon this special place.

 On the challenging and remote landscape of Waiheke Island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf you’ll find Man O’ War. A 4,500-acre family farm with over 150-acres under vine. The first vines were planted in 1993, and over the next two decades they explored the farm and analysed the kingdom that lies beneath in search of the best single vineyard locations to one day make world-class wine.
