Welcome to Summer
A kitchen for all seasons
At Amisfield, we don't just live on the land, we live from it. Our philosophy has always been to serve the best of what’s local and in season.
Our Executive Chef Vaughan Mabee works with a dedicated forager and an experienced charcutier to hunt, gather and curate fare that supports our vision: to deliver fresh, seasonal produce that celebrates our bountiful region and its unique flavours.
Trust the Chef
Amisfield Bistro serves our signature Trust The Chef degustation menu – a 3 to 9 course gastronomic lunch or dinner experience designed to be matched with a selection of our famous wines.
Sophisticated, inventively presented dishes are designed using classic techniques with a creative twist to bring out the best of the locally sourced produce.
‘His (Vaughan) three to seven-course feast is one of the most spectacular meals you can find in New Zealand at the moment.’
