Zanellis offers a uniquely unusual wine list, ranging from popular Italian, New Zealand and Australian wines to the distinctively different fruit wines from New Zealand vintners Viligrad and 3 Brothers.

It’s at Zanellis you’ll be able to try Plum on the Rocks – an unusual pale red wine splashed directly onto melting ice that creates a refreshingly different view of traditional wine tasting. Or try the deep rich tones of the boysenberry wine, reminiscent of a blackberry nip that suddenly grew up into a robust layered wine that will delight your senses!

Naturally you may prefer a selection of New Zealand’s finest beer or spirits and Zanellis carries a full selection for you to choose from.
