The Bok Shop

The Bok Shop is a family owned and run business based in New Plymouth and Rotorua, purchased by Louise Boyder in March 2023. It  is a celebration of South African tradition interwoven with the heart of Kiwi culture.  Originating from a desire to share the unique flavours and customs of their homeland, the family has brought a slice of South Africa to New Zealand. They provide an extensive range of biltong and boerewors which is their traditional sausage and meats from their on site butchery, as well as much-loved groceries and other South African delicacies.  Each item stocked has been thoughtfully chosen to reflect the unique diversity and spirit of  their South African origins.

Known Unknown

Get ready to hear some juicy tales at New Plymouth’s only garagiste winery - Known Unknown!  Here you'll meet winemaker, author, and educator, Jules van Costello, who specializes in making bright, fun, fruit-forward, wine, aperitifs and cider. He will guide you through some of the most interesting history and science of winemaking.  Jules is an expert in creating and describing tastes and flavours to wow every palette and will also teach you how to put together the tastiest pairings of food and drink during your stop at Known Unknown.

Mike’s Brewery

Featuring 28 taps with a comprehensive selection of locally brewed beers (some are Mike’s own) and ciders,  Mike’s has been in business for over 30 years, making them the oldest real craft brewery in New Zealand.  Ron Trigg certainly knows his stuff, and tells an engaging tale about the beer brewing processes as well as providing you with a taste of their popular brews.

Lunch Venue - Shining Peak Brewing

Shining Peak Brewery take their name from our province - Taranaki.  In Te Reo Tara means mountain peak and naki is thought to come from ngaki meaning shining - referring to the mountain’s winter snow cover.   It is not only a popular destination because of their much loved beers brewed on site, but also because of the tasty menu prepared by their award-winning head chef.     Here you share a selection of their tasty food for lunch coupled with a beer or wine.
