NB. Butterfish Bay wines is now Dancing Petrel Wines
The home of Butterfish Bay Estate, Paewhenua Island, is a north facing peninsula in the upper reaches of Mangonui Harbour overlooking Mangonui village and out the harbour entrance to Karikari Peninsula. It features a coastal farm park development of 26 residential house sites with the separately owned 13ha vineyard as its focal point.
With panoramic views, the large well separated sites are set amongst attractive landscape patterns designed by respected landscape Architect Dennis Scott with a nice balance of established bush, native revegetation undertaken by the developers (more than 200,000 plants), open space including grazing land, a restored wetland and the vineyard.
The commonly owned foreshore including a private jetty, floating pontoon and all tide boat ramp provides easy access for all residents to the harbour and Doubtless Bay.
The vineyard is fully developed and Butterfish Bay Wines are now available from the 2008 and 2009 vintages. Click the banner above to visit Butterfish Bay.
