    Thomas’s Bach Restaurant at Batch Winery offers relaxed island-style eating with plates and high tea to share with family and friends. The Bach is great for group events and functions with a backdrop of spectacular views from Coromandel to the Auckland CBD.

    The Thomas Family selected Waiheke Island in New Zealand for its beauty, lifestyle and the recognition of wines. They searched the world including Europe and North and South America for a vineyard that could match their desire to create batch-driven quality wines. Waiheke matched their wishes with its island location, outstanding beauty, people and a lifestyle of relaxing holidays, special family time and celebrations when the pleasure of quality wine makes the occasion special.

    They visited New Zealand to look at a vineyard for sale in the south but a chance to rest and recover on Waiheke before flying south changed their minds. During the short stay they became enchanted with Waiheke Island, the bourgeoning reputation for Waiheke wines also helped. Wines created by Batch Winery on Waiheke are batch-driven and boutique. Each wine created by Batch Winery carries a label reflecting the care of each batch of grapes to wine with unique “batch” numbers referencing vintage years and styles of wine.

    The label also recalls the colours of wine in tone and shade from pale lemon lime to claret and rose. The name of Batch Winery recalls all this and more. There is also another influence. New Zealand’s iconic “bach” is a word that sounds the same and importantly, recalls New Zealand’s relaxed family holiday lifestyle. The New Zealand word “bach” references a holiday home, often simple and by the sea, a place where extended family relaxes together building family memories, a concept synonymous with Waiheke Island.
