Okahu Estate

Okahu is located 3.5km from Kaitaia on the Awarora Rd (the road to Ahipara, the little village at the southern end of 90 Mile Beach). Okahu’s six acre estate vineyard is on the corner of Awarora Rd and Okahu Rd, latitude 35.08ºS with the winery’s frontage off Okahu Road. The elevated site slopes west nor west, with impressive rural views, out to the sand hills of 90 Mile Beach and Shipwreck Bay. The proximity to the beach provides a maritime climate with the predominant winds from the west.
