Tantalus Estate | Waiheke Island

For Tender | 70-72 Onetangi Road Onetangi, Waiheke Island

For anyone who’s ever dreamt of owning a vineyard or lifestyle block on Waiheke, Tantalus Estate could be your wildest dream come true. It was once just 20 acres in the heart of the Onetangi Valley. Today it’s a state-of-the-art winery, boutique craft beer brewery, world-class restaurant and a premium wedding and events venue.

There are also olives, macadamia nuts, and honey harvested from the manuka trees. Around 5,000 native trees have been planted and there’s even a wetland with boardwalks.

This total transformation has been achieved largely because the owners kept three guiding principles in mind: the exceptional, the bespoke and the hand-crafted. The vineyard, for example, which produces exceptional Bordeaux and Rhone style wines, includes one block planted with a Cabernet Sauvignon clone dating back to 1887. The winery itself makes use of innovative technologies, such as space-saving square wine tanks, and unusual ‘concrete eggs’ for Tantalus’s unique expressions of Syrah, Chardonnay and Merlot.

The main hospitality building was designed by creative genius Nat Cheshire and his team at Cheshire Architects. In the 160-seat restaurant, one of the most remarked-upon features are the chandeliers crafted from old vines. The Alibi Brewery bar features intricate brickwork and hand-crafted beer taps.

In the luxuriously appointed ‘Decanter Room’ the inspiration for the estate’s name is revealed – a unique collection of tantalus cases. A tantalus is an elegant antique case for keeping the best drinks in the house secure. That’s why each tantalus has a special lock and key.

The most outstanding Tantalus of all though is the Estate itself and it’s now for sale. A rare opportunity for that wild dream to come true. You don’t have to recognise the potential here, just enjoy and capitalise on what has already been painstakingly established. Famed as it is for outstanding properties, there is nothing quite like Tantalus on Waiheke.
