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 was a great tour - you take the ferry from Auckland to Waiheke Island, and then when you get off the ferry, the bus driver is in the terminal with a sign to direct you to the bus. Then, you spend half the day going from winery to olive oil maker to winery. I'm not a huge wine fan, but the day was fantastic. I took this trip solo and quickly made friends several of the Australian and British groups also on the tour. The views are very pretty. Lunch was pretty good, nothing amazing, but not terrible, and it was enjoyable to get to sit down and converse with other tour members. I recommend, after the ferry ride back to Auckland, having dinner in one of the restaurants in the ferry building. It was a great way to end the day.

A good tour. The friendly, informative driver/guide met us at the ferry terminal on the island. Good wineries to visit with enthusiastic guides to explain their products. A very good lunch sitting outside not far from the vines. The only disappointment was the size of the group. As we got on the bus to start the tour a group of 18 was added. That would have been okay, but they acted like they didn't want to be there, their talking amongst themselves over the driver and local guides was distracting, and they were always late returning to the bus.
Included in the tour price was a local bus pass for the island, but the tour finished at 5pm and I don't think anyone stayed to use it.

One of the most wonderful tours you could imagine -- incredible wines, remarkable vistas, outstanding guide, and overall a fascinating, wonderful day!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our Wine on Waiheke tour, despite it being a substitute for our originally booked Taste of Waiheke tour -- since the cruise ship was late arriving in Tauranga, we missed our original tour but Fullers Group accommodated us on this later albeit somewhat less-extensive tour. The 3 award-winning vineyards we visited were well chosen and our driver/guide was fun and informative -- we enjoyed the many wine samples, demonstrations and learning experiences.

This tour was fantastic, the guide was really knowledgeable of the entire area. All food and wines tasted were delicious and best of all it was a short ferry ride from Auckland CBD. Highly recommend!
