Small-Group Wine Tasting Experience on Waiheke Island
From US$100.14
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Discover the wine scene of Waiheke Island on a wine-tasting tour that introduces you to some of the isle's best spots. With a guide, you'll taste boutique wines and meet local producers who provide the chance to get to know the island's culture a little better. Along the way, admire the native bush and vineyard scenery. Please note, ferry rides from Auckland are not included.
What to Expect
Hop on the 9:30am "Fullers" Waiheke Island ferry leaving from the downtown Auckland ferry terminal Pier 2. You will be greeted by your guide with a "Waivino Tours" sign as you step onto Waiheke Island and taken to the comfortable tour vehicle where the fun will begin.
On your way to the first winery, you travel along the northern ridge with beautiful views and your guide will point out amazing aspects of this unique ancient island. At the first winery you get to try some lovely wines in a gorgeous setting. The winemakers or the winery staff will tell you their story as you completely get into the relaxing Waiheke Island vibe. You will enjoy three wineries and your guide can arrange a segue into a lovely lunch (optional). Once you have seen and tasted enough for the day you will be transferred back to your awaiting ferry.

Amazing day!

Grant was lovely, and provided us with plenty of insights on Waiheke island while driving us around the most scenic views and routes. The wineries he chose were great, and the wine tasting delicious. Thanks Grant for a wonderful day!

Great day with Grant

We had a great day with Grant touring 3 (non-commercial) wineries on Waiheke Island. Grant is very knowledgeable and entertaining and his love of the island is evident. His restaurant suggestion for lunch was spot on! Thank you Grant for making our day amazing. Laura
