Wine and Beverages

Turtle Island is all about the finer points in life: Love, travel, relaxation, incredible meals, and of course, great wine.

We go out of our way (quite literally) to hand pick selections from the most wonderful boutique wineries in the world. We find wines from the premier wine growing regions from all points of the globe, but these wineries are just far enough off the beaten path that you’ll likely be trying them for the first time while visiting us.

Our wine list changes constantly, ensuring that each vintage is up to high standards. We find wines that pair with our island meals… such as our Mongolian Barbeque, which pairs well with our Young’s Vineyard’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. Or try something sweet like our Allan Scott 2008 Marlborough Riesling with something spicy, like our Curry night. Meals finish with delectable ports and dessert wines!!

Our selections may change, but our desire & passion to bring you unique, interesting, delicious hidden gems does not falter. In fact, the wine country lifestyle is not far off from the island life. Every day, we enjoy the finer things in life. We hope you’ll enjoy them with us soon!

At the start of your stay on Turtle Island you are shown the range of wines available in the cellar so you can browse before a picnic or dine-out.
