“My philosophy for food is to keep it simple, keep it healthy, make it full of flavour and most importantly, make it with LOVE.”
Producing only 2,000 cases on average per vintage with a specialty for cellaring, Te Motu produces premium Bordeaux- style wines under the Dunleavy and Te Motu labels.
Nestled amongst the working vineyard, The Shed is Te Motu’s award-winning restaurant. Chef Bronwen Laight, originally from Canada and with ten years’ international experience, calls Waiheke Island home. Bronwen’s philosophy for food is to keep it simple, keep it healthy, make it full of flavour and most importantly, make it with LOVE. She uses high quality local ingredients, much of which is grown on the property, creating innovative and flavoursome cuisine that matches perfectly with the world–class Te Motu wines.
