History

Stephen White- owner and founder of Stonyridge vineyard, fell in love with the culture and lifestyle of the Mediterranean and the delicious red wines of France, Tuscany and California and wanted to recreate the experience in Auckland. The glorious olive garden, set amidst the Stonyridge valley evokes the Mediterranean feels and is the perfect getaway destination from the hustle and bustle of the noisy city.

Best Time to Visit

Auckland is beautiful during summer. The rippling sparkling water flows by, with gentle breeze swinging around to give you the perfect summer holiday vibes. Stonyridge in specific is gorgeous during spring when the vineyard smells all fresh, and one can gaze upon the beauty of the olive valleys sitting beside the enchanting French Cafe of the vineyard.

The ideal time to visit Stonyridge would be the month of October, when the temperature is also easy to breathe, with slight rainfall. Stonyridge would be a great visit during December-February but, would be a little crowded than usual. Also, hotel prices are a little higher during this time.
