PINNACLE GROVE is a unique Wairarapa property set amongst extensive native and exotic plantings – including 28 acres of walnut plantation. Owners Alma and Ad van der Tol, originally from the Netherlands, settled on the block of bare land along Norfolk Road, where they set about creating Wairarapa’s premier walnut grove and homestay. Nestled under the iconic Tararuas Ranges, a feature of which is the Pinnacle Ridge – Pinnacle Grove is handy to Masterton and surrounding towns, vineyards, dining and entertainment – with Mount Holdsworth’s welcoming picnic areas and walking tracks just along the road.
Pinnacle Grove produces some of New Zealands’s finest walnuts and supplies both shelled and whole walnuts to a selection of New Zealand’s top restaurants. Their high quality Meyric walnuts, sweet and nutty to taste, are nutricious and visually appealling to enhance any dish. Flexible on quantities and packaging, Pinnacle Grove also offers a ‘crack to order’ service ensuring freshness and taste to the most discerning buyer. Please contact Ad and Alma for order enquiries.
