This may not be a shop for travellers, but it could be. Especially if you are looking for some cuisine from home. There is a very interesting array of wine here and lots of other goodies to go with it, both from New Zealand and overseas. Almost a delicatessen. I spent a lot of time just looking and pondering. Now I can go back and buy from time to time.
I found French wines, Spanish wines, Argetinian wines, Kiwi wines, oh and Limoncello too!! Not forgetting the Aussie wines, reds are the best!!
They have a cheese section with tasting facilities, also with wine, so you can match your wine with your fromage :-)

What to buy: WINE, coffee specially ground, and cheese and stuff.
Nice place to pick up tasteful and classy gifts, make good gifts for hosts you may be staying a night or two with on your travels around New Zealand.

What to pay: Well nothing is really cheap in this shop, it is not a discount shop. However you can get things here not easily procurable around NZ. I don't mind paying for such items. But most are still affordable!

Address: Main Street, Tirau.
Directions: It's in the main street.
