Food & Wine
"We hunt, fish and dive, and what we shoot or catch comes back to the table and becomes part of Fiordland surf & turf - crayfish, venison, paua, blue cod, it’s a Fiordland feast. We light a big fire and we enjoy the wine, we have a beer or two, we cook."
At Salt + Earth, food and wine is something to savour. Cooking and eating together is a time for reflection, for sharing stories and for indulgence. You’ll enjoy the most authentic wild food available. Not only will you catch it in its environment, but you can prepare it with your host and eat together with a genuine sense of satisfaction. Paua (shellfish), crayfish (lobster), whitebait, blue cod, venison (deer), lamb - it’s from this land and it’s brought to our table. The menu will also include seasonal vegetables from our garden, eggs from our chook house, Stewart Island salmon and cheeses exclusively selected for Salt + Earth from one of New Zealand’s finest cheesemongers.
Complimentary: Daily A la carte breakfast, appetisers, fine wine on arrival

After a day of hunting, fishing or hiking, there are few better things to do than put your feet up and indulge in a glass or two of the finest wines. Nathan has a very select wine menu of 20 of the best wines from the central Otago region, including two Pinot Noirs from celebrated Central Otago vintner Alan Brady. Every wine has been hand-picked from small specifically located vineyards, and each tells its own story. Much like your stay here, drinking wine is an experience to savour - from the specially made reidel Central Pino Noir glass to the interesting and educational tasting notes.
