Food and Wine-Tasting Tour of Waiheke Island from Auckland

Start your Waiheke Island wine tour from the Auckland Ferry Terminal and aboard the ferry for a 40-minute crossing over the Hauraki Gulf. Upon arrival in the bucolic setting of Waiheke Island, you’ll discover why the forest- and vineyard-clad isle produces some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed artisan wines.
You’ll be greeted at the wharf by your tour driver and directed to your coach. Enjoy a scenic drive to your first stop, the enchanting Casita Miro, with its unmistakable Mediterranean feel, and enjoy a wine tasting with food pairing.
Next stop is the beautiful Batch winery, with spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf, where you'll enjoy a tour and tastings, plus a light lunch overlooking the vines, out across the harbour, to Auckland city on the horizon.
Afterwards, depart for Rangihoua Estate, which introduces you to Waiheke’s olive growing industry and includes a tasting of award-winning olive oils.
Your tour finishes with tastings at the iconic Dellows Waiheke, where you will taste what Waiheke has to offer in terms of liquor’s, whisky’s, and the global award winning gin – if you prefer to stick to the wine, Dellows also has a range from their vineyard.
Following Dellows, return to the ferry terminal feeling content you have tasted everything Waiheke has to offer. When the tour is over you can take advantage of the complimentary all day bus pass allowing you to further explore the island on the scheduled bus services at your own pace.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The ferry ride over and back was pleasant and relatively quick. Our bus driver/guide was awesome. She was very informative. The winery visits were great. We enjoyed both the wine and presentations by the knowledgeable staff. Same goes for the olive tasting. The scenery was gorgeous. I highly recommend this tour!

Great day! Jocelyn, our bus driver/guide was wonderful! Lunch in the olive grove was delicious. Casita Miro winery was unique. Each stop was different enough so as not to be just another wine tasting. One caution, if you are mobility impaired, this is NOT the tour for you.

A great way to spend a day outside the city of Auckland. Hop a big bus and tour stops at 3 wineries, one olive oil mill, and lunch is included on the first stop.
Our guide was fantastic New Zealand woman. But I wish Fullers started the tour earlier in the day. Can feel rushed.

We had a wonderful time with this tour. It was small and more relaxed that a big bus type excursion. The sites selected were very interesting and fun. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

The guide was very knowledgeable about every stop and the island. There was plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the tastings but she made sure we were back in time to catch the ferry back to our cruise ship.
