The well-known Central Otago winery Akarua has paired up with Queenstown Artisan Catering to bring us the delicious Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan.

All we can say is that the menu speaks for itself!

Set in a quaint miner’s cottage, Provisions is the place to go if you are a fan of preserves. While they offer delicious traditional food which can be enjoyed in the outdoor garden seating, the jams and chutneys alike are where they really shine.
