I would highly recommend any visitor to Auckland to board this fine wine tour excursion. Our tour guide was funny, patient and very informative. He had highly recommended we stay for dinner after the tour finished and several of us did just that . My traveling buddy, Elva, and I ate with two other female tourists and enjoyed a wonderful and now are connected via FaceBook. The 4 vineyards selected were marvelous. Lunch was quite tasty and met my culinary standards. We had a fun group of tourists who were very vocal. I have been telling all my friends to do this tour.

The wineries visited all provided excellent explanations of their wine production methods. However, seeing as this a strong red wine production area I was a little disappointed the tastings didn't give the option of choosing a tasting that fit the individual preferences. Otherwise the tour was great. Throwing the olive oil tasting made it even better.

This was the last excursion of a 21 day trip. We were a bit tired but had a wonderful tour. Started with a 40 min ferry ride and then a delicious lunch at the first vineyard. We had quick visits to 2 more wineries and also tasted olive oil. Beautiful vistas around the island as well. Then another ferry ride home. A great way to end our trip.
