Waiheke Wine Tour

A short ferry ride from Auckland, or Half moon bay gets to you to Waiheke. In winter a quiet island just the locals and commuters into CBD, but in summer the population doubles, plus all the day trippers ourselves included. Not wanting to sample the wine and drive we took a Fullers wine and olive oil tasting trip. There are approx. 26 Wineries and 14 Olive plantations on the island, although our trip took in a lot lot less. Recommended!

The Itinerary

Your first visit is to Stonyridge Vineyard, where you will enjoy a tour and tastings, plus a sumptuous light lunch . You then depart for Rangihoua Estate, which introduces you to Waiheke’s olive growing industry (includes olive oil tasting). A stop at 'Wild on Waiheke' offers optional beer tasting as well as wine, and the chance to sample home grown preserves and chutneys. Your tour is concluded with final tastings at the beautiful Mudbrick Vineyard before returning to the ferry terminal.
