All was good except the Stony Ridge Winery was dreadful - rushed through the explanation which was outside near the very loud music playing so very difficult to hear her. Rushed through the opportunity to buy a glass of wine and unable to buy any since it was past 6:00. Clearly a cattle call to make a few dollars. Fortunately Batch Winery was excellent and was well worth the visit.

Our guide Ruth was fantastic! Wonderful venues, great wine! Loved the cheese board for entre but our mains were a little average. But we didn’t mind because we had a wonderful sunset to watch whilst eating dinner and everything else was exceptional! Loved the wines! Wish we could have bought a bottle to take home at Stonyridge. However there were wines available at the batch to buy and take home. Would definitely recommend to a friend and would come with them! :)

Our Belgian driver was witty, humorous and knowledgeable about the island. Easy-going tour - 2 wineries with 3 wine tastings each at a relaxing pace to not feel rushed and enjoy the scenery and surroundings. Both tourguides were awesome and surprisingly the olive oil tasting was delicious too. Dinner was a big shared cheeseboard followed by an equally large main to finish and enjoy the sunset from one of the highest points on the island before watching the full moon on the ferry back to Auckland city. Overall an awesome trip! Note// Our driver did mention that any bottles purchased after 6pm have to be consumed on premises so keep an eye on that.
