Kumeu, West Auckland

About Kumeu:

Kumeū is a prosperous rural community in New Zealand, 25 km north-west of the centre of Auckland City.

Kumeu blends rich heritage with a picturesque landscape. The winemaking tradition of the area dates back to the 1940s, when families of Croatian descent opened the first wineries of Auckland.

Host to Auckland's oldest winery, Kumeu boasts award-winning restaurants, interesting galleries, and a range of specialty shops. Kumeu is a soothing mix of boutique wineries, orchards, and lush farmland.

History and Demographics

Originally, the district was settled by immigrants from the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, many of whom were part of traditional wine-growing families.

The population of Kumeu-Huapai was 3,432 in the 2018 New Zealand census. There were 1,110 households in the area.


The primary schools of the Huapai District School and the Matua Ngaru School, and the state-integrated Hare Krishna School, which is a composite school, serve Kumeu.

The majority of high-school students attend school in the nearby suburbs.

There is a few of you that are new here so I thought I would introduce myself ✨ ⠀

I am Lauren, a lover of allll things beauty, especially fake tan & makeup! I also love travel, adventures, wine, music and cars. ☀️ ⠀

I have two gorgeous tiny dogs, they are chihuahua x Maltese sisters. 🐶 I live in Auckland, north/west ish. It’s a little more rural out these ways, which I love 🐄⠀

I did my makeup training 8 years ago! And seriously where did the time go?! I have since added on hair styling & range of beauty services. Brow wax & tints, lash lifts & tints, brow henna, spray tans and gel polish. These services are available in my studio, in Huapai. I also enjoy getting to travel all over the place for hair & makeup bookings💄⠀ ⠀

I’m grateful that I still love what I do and for the amazing people I've met these last 8 years. Looking forward to events and weddings picking up again so I can help you all look & feel your absolute best 💃🥳💕

2018 Kumeu River - Estate Chardonnay (90 pts) kumeu_river

ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Chardonnay from six different estate vineyards in the Kumeu Region. The vines are 7-20 years old and are planted in clay loam soils over a sandstone base. The grapes are hand-harvested, whole cluster pressed, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wines are barrel fermented and go through 💯 malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 11 months in French oak barrels.

👁 Pale lemon color.

👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of grapefruit pith, key lime, lemon zest, pear, yellow apple, oak, toasted nuts, whole cream, and flint.

👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol (13%), and medium- body. A medium length finish of citrus zest, toasted nuts, and flint.

🔔 The Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay offers a fantastic Quality to Price Ratio (QPR) Chardonnay. The wine is very balanced with good acidity, a creamy texture, and a reasonably ethereal body. The palate shows a gentle kiss of new oak (assuming 15-20% new oak) and endearing flinty notes on the finish. Kumeu River does a beautiful job of showcasing New World fruit with Old World winemaking sensibility across their range.

💰 ~$30

Throwback to 1st lockdown, a Wednesday, because I’m wearing all pink 😂 ⠀

This time round I’ve definitely found a little harder. Trying to be productive and not sleep in every morning, is actually really hard 🤷‍♀️😂 ⠀

Safe to say I’m really looking forward to getting back to a bit of normality next week and I can’t wait to get back to work and my wonderful clients! 💕⠀

Hope everyone is doing alright & if you’re struggling, please reach out to someone. Friends, family, helplines or I’m a pretty good listener if you need 💫⠀
Not long to go now pals ✨

Back in my hay day... 🤣
... Last week I started a job working at the strawberry farms out west of Auckland in Kumeu. 🍓 👨🏻‍🌾
Since I’ve started I’ve met so many travellers and nationalities ; French, Spanish, Argentinian’s, Portuguese, South Korean’s, Japanese and many of our islander brothers & sisters too. 🇫🇷 🇪🇸 🇦🇷 🇵🇹 🇰🇷 🇯🇵 🇫🇯 🇹🇴 🇼🇸
For work we dispersed hay throughout the aisles to conserve moisture, prevent the spread of diseases, help suppress weeds and to keep berries clean & soil free. 💦 ❌🦠 🍓
Because of this hard work don’t worry guys, those strawberries will be good to go & be ready for picking & munching in no time. 👍🏼🍓👨🏻‍🌾
Ps. If you want to know what to look for in travel jobs on the farms in New Zealand, apparently blue berries are where the big bucks are at. 🤣💰💰💰

I’d heard great things about kumeu_river and this #KumeuVillage #wine and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a beautiful example of a lightly oaked chard at an attractively bargainous price point. A smooth buttery mouthfeel but still fresh and crisp with aromas and flavours of fresh peaches, apple, melon, blossom and vanilla from the oak. Lovely balance and medium to long finish. If you want a good quality #Chardonnay with a blend of those warm #NewWorld stone fruits, fresh green fruits and a decent but delicate hand with the oak then this is a great choice. #kumeuvalleyestate #kumeuriver #oakedchardonnay ...

We know this Easter was a little different but we hope you were all able to enjoy some family time. This photo is a flashback to our Easter family day a few years ago where we were lucky enough to have Jacinda Ardern pop in for a visit. We were sad not to be able to host our annual event this year but are proud of our community for all you are doing. Thank you for supporting us. Stay safe and keep looking out for eachother. 🙏 ...
