The Abditory invites you for a sensory degustation in the heart of Akaroa.
Inside you’ll find stories that link up and come full circle. Artist and alchemist Rewa Rendall exhibits her brilliant photographs from her expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. Inspired by Frank Hurley’s wet plate photography of the Antarctic on his adventure with Shackleton and Worsley, Rewa has taken up wet plate photography and invites you to take a seat in history and have your silver portrait taken.
The Abditory is also home to Meniscus Wines, owned by Rewa’s parents, Gay and David. We offer wine tastings, or if you’d like to go up to the vineyard and enjoy the stunning Akaroa views, you can book a hamper with us and enjoy a lovely afternoon in the vines.
