What You Can Expect

Food and Wine-Tasting Tour of Waiheke Island from Auckland

Taste olive oil at Rangihoua Estate

Start your Waiheke Island wine tour from the Auckland Ferry Terminal and board 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.

Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach and be greeted by your driver-guide who takes you to the first of several stops: Stonyridge Vineyard, one of Waiheke Island’s first wineries, which specializes in Bordeaux-style red wines.

After a vineyard tour, followed by a wine tasting and light lunch, continue on to the award-winning Rangihoua Estate where you’re treated to a demonstration of harvesting techniques in the olive orchards. Then head to the estate’s tasting room to sample an array of olive oils and learn about their production.

At Casita Miro, enjoy the taste of good wine, then savor magnificent views of Hauraki Gulf from Mudbrick Vineyard as you sample wine amid lush gardens and vineyards.

You have the option to return to the wharf for a late-afternoon ferry ride back to Auckland. Alternatively, use your complimentary All Day Bus Pass if you’d prefer to stay on the island and explore further by public bus, returning at your leisure. Ferries to Auckland run until late in the evening; check the schedule for details.

The wine tasting was fantastic! We had Evelyn as tour guide for the day and she was adorable. The wines and the olive oil from the four places we went to were great, regretted now buying more!

We had a fabulous time on this tour. Mudbrick Vineyard was amazing. This is one of the most beautiful vineyards I've ever seen. Prepare to hick to the top of the property for an amazing view of the whole island. Oh, and the wine was good too! We also went to a winery called Stonyridge. That's where we had lunch. It was delicious! One of our stops was to an olive tasting. It was so good that we had to bring some home. What really helped make this a wonderful trip was tour guide. She was fabulous!

Great tour! Loved all the vineyards that we stopped at as well as the olive grove. The lunch was very good, and the views from one of the wineries were fantastic! Josselyn, our guide/bus driver was terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed this day!

Each of the wineries as well as the olive oil facility were fabulous. The wines were delicious I just wish I could get them in Texas. The staff were generous and accommodating and we had a great time.

The tour was great, however one could not use the e-ticket feature a paper ticket must be presented
at the time of travel to the island. Fortunately the young lady at the booking counter in Aukland was able to get us tickets. Disaster avoided.

What a wonderful day. The ferry trip to the island was great and a nice way to see Auckland from the water. The properties we visited were varied and showed off the produce of the island extremely well. The lunch supplied at the first vineyard was very tasty. It was a great day out and we were back in Auckland by 4.45pm after another great ferry ride
