In March my partner and I visited the skyline luge and came along to Volcanic Hills Winery. Annie, who served us and talked us through their five wines on offer was outstanding, colloquial and a very good conversationalist.

We very much enjoyed our experience at Volcanic Hills and would absolutely visit again, both for the wine and the service! The atmosphere was lovely, and the view over Rotorua is exceptional.

Absolutely loved our visit to Volcanic Hills. Amazing views, amazing wine and the friendly staff made us feel comfortable, wine educated and welcome even with our 2 small (and noisy) children. I especially loved having half an hour to myself while daddy took the kids to explore while I had a glass of wine relaxing in the sun!

What a fun way to send 45 minutes.The wine tasting is unpretentious and Annie was an absolute delight.We tried fine wines,no pressure to buy,lots of discussion about taste etc.We both like wine but do not know masses and this gave you something to understand and taste.A great way to learn more with a stunning view to see too!!!
