Frenchman Stephane Ughetto, wife Taryn and little boy Kaiden took on ownership of Raupō Café in August 2014. For Stephane, originally from a small village in Cotes du Rhone wine region in France, it was an opportunity that could not be missed. To be able to combine his passion for beautiful food and efficient friendly service in the heart of a wine region was a dream come true.
Although keeping the name “Raupō” to maintain the history of the local area, the Café has added a touch of French influence in the inviting menus, wine lists and décor. Raupō Café aims to provide its valued customers with fresh, locally sourced food with friendly and efficient service in a relaxing and welcoming environment.
