Private  Essence  of  Waiheke  Wine  Tour

Known as ‘New Zealand’s Island of Wine’, Waiheke has become home to a dedicated group of award-winning wine producers. With a unique micro-climate and the winemakers’ philosophy of “small is beautiful”, Waiheke has produced some of New Zealand’s most prestigious wines.

On this private tour, you will visit three of Waiheke’s top vineyards and sample a range of their wines. Along the way enjoy a commentated scenic drive, learning about the Island’s history, geography, people and culture from your knowledgeable local guide.

After your wine tasting experience sit back, relax and enjoy lunch at one of our world class vineyards, or choose a more casual affair at a beachfront café. The cost of lunch is at your own expense, but we will make sure you have a reservation at your preferred venue.

After lunch your guide will return you to the ferry or Island accommodation. If you would prefer to swap a vineyard for an olive oil mill or craft brewery tasting just let us know. We are happy to tailor the tour to suit you!

Children 0 - 15 years are welcome to join the tour free of charge (up to three children per two paying adults).
