The place is an open field spread around 7 acres of land. The boutique is surrounded with hills and greenery of Te Putiki O Kahu Hill forestry which was an early Maori settlement 700 years ago. Wild on Waiheke is located on Waiheke Island, around 35 minutes away from the Waitemata Harbour. The island is rather drier and warmer than its neighbouring regions such as Auckland and Hauraki Gulf, and the soil is infertile in order to suit wine growth.
