Our host's knowledge of the local wineries and vintages was impressive. Equally important, he clearly has cultivated a strong rapport with each winemaker. This could be seen on our trip by the freedom that we had in touring the cellars and production facilities and in the warm welcome and friendly service we received from the winery staff. The choice of venues was astutely tailored to our food and wine preferences. Top marks!

This tour is a must if you are visiting Aukland. We had a wonderful day touring wineries and sampling products. Phil keeps his tours small so everyone had a chance to pick Phil's brain about the great wines of New Zealand. Small bus, no crowding. It was just perfect. Had a great lunch at one of the wineries and bought a small stuffed kiwi which we promptly named "Parker"!. Note to Phil "Parker" is doing fine sitting on our mantle reminding us of a great day!

Hi vamimmito4!!
It was a really fun day out with you and the group. It was my pleasure to host you and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour. And thanks for taking time to post your great review.
(It's good to know that 'Parker' has a good home in VA)
Warm regards,
