Enjoy a flavourful wine tasting and explore the incredible Brick Bay Sculpture Trail!
Discover the outdoor gallery of over 60 large-scale sculptures, and enjoy an incredible wine tasting!
The Brick Bay Sculpture Trail is set in a sublime landscape of towering native trees - majestic palms, a precious kauri forest and established native bush alive with birdsong.
The 2km sculpture trail meanders past lakes, vineyard, forest and open pasture, and offers unexpected intimate views alongside stunning panoramas. Be challenged and delighted by the carefully curated selection of sculptures.
Discover works that float, move with the wind or sunlight, or produce an unexpected sound experience - the trail will certainly appeal to all ages. Explore the annual Brick Bay Folly project which is inspired by a quirky interpretation of an architectural ‘structure’ and challenges young architects to stretch wide their imagination.
All sculpture is for sale and The Glass House also hosts an indoor gallery with small works from leading NZ sculptors.
About our wine - Taste our terroir
Our vineyards slope north-east and the soil is a clay loam which was used in the 1800s to make bricks, giving us our name - Brick Bay.
Our sustainably accredited 4.5 hectare vineyard produces the fruit for our Matakana wines, so each vintage is an individual expression of this unique site reflecting the nuances of its soils, microclimate and sustainable management. With our first vines planted in 1995, we now produce a classic Pinot Gris, an elegant Chardonnay, a deliciously fruity Rosé and distinctively complex Bordeaux reds. Each vine is carefully tended through its yearly cycle by hand, meaning the vine will ripen a small load of fruit well, giving a concentration of flavour and aroma. You can taste for yourself - just ask your friendly host.
