The Grove at Home

Comforting & nourishing classics in your own home.

While The Grove can't open its doors to you just yet, they can open their kitchen. Head Chef Ryan Moore, who hails from the UK wanted the opportunity to showcase some of Britain's finest classics. Chef Ryan would like to bring some of this wholesome food from his childhood to New Zealand homes. Enjoy and be nurtured from the comfort of your abode with either fresh or frozen choices. The concept of the menu is to have different offerings so that you have options throughout the week.

Happy Christmas 2023

Those of you who are signed up for the newsletter have been enjoying and sharing our newsletter and recipes with friends, and have received the 10 new wineries with excitement. I am hoping the new drop-down menus and collections are contributing to your navigation. It certainly feels like it as I support your wines from sales to doorsteps all over NZ.

In 2024 I hope to bring you the same brilliant wines, with the same personal service. 

Have a very Merry Christmas, 


2020 Christmas Message

Lets be together while we can.  This year I have learned not to keep things for best, not to save the good champagne for later.  If you're at my house, if I missed you during lockdown. If you'd share a pie with me on the side of the road.  I'm opening the best for you.  Share with the ones you love. Lets not put it off.
Why by wine online?

Selling wine by the case is part of how we offer you the best bottle price, it keeps shipping costs smart and effective. We also support local restaurants by providing them with our world class restuarant focused food blog.
