Ransom Wines is located off State Highway 1 Warkworth, roughly a 90 minute drive north of Auckland City. It is the first winery on the Matakana wine trail, visitors can enjoy wine tasting, cellar door sales and platters while overlooking the vineyard.

The winery has built a solid reputation for its Bordeaux style reds and Pinot Gris wines. Ransom Wines is a good place to visit, especially if you are looking for a break on a drive to the Bay of Islands.

All the wines are made with grapes grown on site. As a small family run operation, our wines celebrate the variations from one vintage to another, which makes each wine unique. In this way we avoid the manufactured uniformity which characterises much of the wine available today.
