At Pātaka we present food and wine con gusto! Our focus is on New Zealand goods made by artisan producers and we would love to share our ‘goodies’ and enthusiasm for the very best NZ foods with you.

Pop in to Pātaka to taste a range of local cheeses, cured meats, salamis, relishes and the delicious Marlborough black garlic.

Relax over our Devonshire tea or take time to savour a cheese tasting plate or a matched cheese and wine tasting.  Our new “Quintessentially Kiwi” light bites feature NZ products loved by New Zealanders.

What is Pātaka?

A pātaka is a Māori storehouse for food or larder.  The structure is usually raised on poles to prevent damp and discourage vermin.  The pātaka  would be considered tapu or sacred.  After all, what could be more important to a group of people than the footstore?

Where is Pātaka?

Pātaka is opposite Saint Clair Family Kitchen, right in the heart of the Marlborough vineyards and only ten minutes drive from Blenheim.
