“Wonderful evening!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We booked the evening Odyssey which tours 3 vineyards, one for each course. We were picked up by Dermot, expat Irishman, who was charming and entertaining and full of local information! As nights were drawing in, we stared the tour by being driven to Te Mata peak and handed a glass of bubbly to take in the views. Dermot pointed out a property below where we would be having our main course. We proceeded to the first winery, Vidal, where we were guided through a series of wines whilst enjoying an ant pasti platter of local produce. Next onto the amazing Craggy range winery, which we had viewed from above, to enjoy our main courses (these had been selected from a choice of 6 at the first venue). Here we chose our desserts before moving onto the final venue, The Mission. Once again we had some guided tastings and superb food! Dermot drove us home (just as well as we couldn't have driven ourselves!) What a great night! highly recommended!

“Great Half Day Wine Tasting Odyssey”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

This half day tour was thoroughly enjoyable. Brendan picked us up from our accommodation and proceeded to inform us about wine growing, tasting and the region in a four hour, four vineyard tour. Each winery we visited had its own unique character, and our group of three separate couples were soon enjoying the ambience of the afternoon and each others company.
Overall really enjoyed the day.

“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Just spent afternoon with Colin and his Odyssey wine tour. We have been on many wine tours all over NZ and Aus and this was by far the best and most enjoyable. Colin was informative and knowledgeable and respected by those people at the vine- yards. .We visited 4 vine-yards on the afternoon tour. All very different but all having amazing wines. At the last one, Odyssey had organised superb platters for us. The 10 people on the trip were all of similar age and we had a whale of a time.
