Only 26 km's from central Auckland, Kumeƫ & Huapai and the surrounding countryside produce some of Auckland's finest wines.

The area is steeped in history with wineries dating back to the 1930s when families from Croatia established homes and livelihoods just as they had in their homeland. This influence remains strong, with many of these families still living locally and producing world class wines. In addition to wineries there are an array of specialty shops and galleries hosting displays from talented local artists, the ideal location for a spot of shopping.

In March each year the Kumeƫ Showgrounds holds one of the southern hemisphere's biggest one-day shows. A variety of other cultural festivals and events take place in the grounds throughout the year.
