Sunday Lunch

Travel only 35 minutes from central Auckland and feel a million miles away from home, to while away a pleasant Sunday afternoon at Vin Alto's Enoteca.  Relax between Enzo's extensive collection of antique glassware and winemaking equipment or in the intimate olive tree lined courtyard overlooking vineyards, herds of deer and views back to the city.  You will also be able to play Bocce -Italian version of P├ętanque- on our Bocce court.

The concept of an Enoteca dates back to Roman times when it was simply a country wine bar where local wines could be drunk and purchased. Also available were small plates of regional food or fresh produce from the farm prepared in the Enoteca kitchen by the family or wife of the host, very often using old family recipes and methods. The wine always remained at centre stage however, and the food was there to make them shine.
