Welcome to Ruby Bay Vineyard Lodge & Cottage

Ruby Bay Vineyard is a privately-owned and managed coastal
vineyard at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. Situated 25 minutes from both Nelson and the stunning Abel Tasman National Park, yet only a five minute drive from Mapua wharf’s waterfront restaurants, cafes and boutique stores.

Wow! That's what we both thought when driving up the lovely drive toward Ruby Bay Lodge.  An amazing location - so serene!  We couldn't have wished for a better spot for our honeymoon, certainly a place we won't forget in a very long time.   Thank you so much Andy and Ivy - the wine, breakfasts and all the other niceties were more than we could have wished for.  Not bad weather either.  M & K NZ
