If you enjoy New Zealand wine, as an additional service we would like to assist you in organising your wine purchase prior to your arrival at Ara Roa.

Ara Roa recommends Foxes Island Wines.

John Belsham founded Foxes Island in 1992 to focus on exquisitely made, regionally expressive wines; exactly what he had learned to do in France. 24 years on, Belsham’s passion for producing exceptional wines has yet to wane.

Foxes Island Wines are exclusive, exquisite and limited in production. Genuinely handcrafted and you will not find these wines in the supermarket or wine shops.

We highly recommend all of their wines, the top line Pinot Noirs are sublime. Also, if you like a dessert wine the Icon Noble Riesling is very special.

We would recommend getting a case of 6 bottles to take with you on your trip. Please click the button below to visit their online shop.
