Our Story

Our Story

Nestled in the beautiful Ararimu Valley, just a short and pretty drive from downtown Auckland, Westbrook is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most respected boutique wineries. The story begins in Croatia, with the renowned wine-making Ivicevich family planted their first grapevines and started to create a name for themselves. Their success and reputation followed them as they moved to New Zealand in 1935, establishing the Sunnyvale vineyard in West Auckland and the Waimauku property in 1999.

With a new wine-loving family at the helm, our skilled wine-making team proudly uphold this extraordinary legacy, using time-honoured traditional and innovative techniques to produce iconic hand-crafted wines . Grapes are sourced from the home vineyard in Waimauku and a single vineyard in Marlborough. All fruit is hand-picked and the juice carefully blended and crafted into the multiple-award-winning wines including our outstanding Chardonnays and Rieslings. Westbrook wines truly reflect the incredible depth, diversity and flavours of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Westbrook’s Cellar Door looks down over tree-lined grass-covered terraces and across the pretty brook-fed lily pond to row after row of vines. We welcome you to visit and enjoy one of our famous Cellar Door Experiences such as a guided tasting with our friendly and knowledgeable team. Stay on to enjoy the beautiful park-like grounds with a glass of something delicious and a wine-matched platter.

Open 7 days - 11.00 am-5.00 pm.

Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and Good Friday.

Visitor Reviews

Went to a few wineries close to riverhead/kumeu, this is the best one so far! But this greeting you on the doorstep explains everything, you literally feel like home! Great wines too! Highly recommend!

Gorgeous location. Serene and restful surroundings. Super friendly staff. And the Crackling Rose is spectacular.

Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Will visit again!

Delicious wine tasting and fun, knowledgeable host. Unpretentious and it's great to see the local businesses promoting each other. Looking forward to returning.

Outstanding wines. Outstanding location. We took a wine tour that had selected North Island wineries near Auckland. We particularly enjoyed this stop. Award winning wines in a beautiful setting. They were knowledgeable and served beautiful wines.
