  • Look fancy or don’t go. Went in casual clothes since, you know, that is comfortable at the beach. Got treated much different than all the other patrons. Also, the reviews I’ve read said you receive 5 tastings but we only received 4. We bought a bottle and then the same bottle was cheaper at the wine store up the street. Wine was good, but the treatment not so much. Definitely don’t buy bottles at the winery.
  • The days are too short to wait for these wine tastings. After 25 mins and only two tastes we left and paid $10 (they tried to charge $20). The wines look good but they need to put speed up their service!
  • Great small place to sample some wines. Staff were very passionate about the wine and told us some great facts along the way of the tasting. Really great. We walked away with two bottles. Prices of the wine are also very affordable. Nice setting with good views of the vineyards.
  • My favourite Vineyard on Waiheke. It is small but a lovely place and in my opinion had the best tasting wine! Will definitely be going back.
  • Great tasting menu, very reasonably priced and excellent staff who engage with the customers. Best wine tasting experience on the island
