Description

Our most popular tour, you will visit three vineyards each offering a range of gourmet tastes to accompany their wines. Treats may include oysters straight from Te Matuku Bay, Waiheke olive oil, Waiheke honey, and artisan cheeses.

Afterwards, enjoy a platter lunch at a fourth vineyard which includes a selection of meats, cheeses, bread, dips and vegetables (dietaries catered for). After lunch you will be returned to your accommodation or to the ferry back to Auckland or choose to be dropped off in Oneroa village and make your own way back when ready.
