Volcanic Hills Winery, Rotorua

(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Ride to the top of the Rotorua Skyline gondola and sample the delicious wines of Volcanic Hills Winery, where the mountainside tasting room offers panoramic views of Lake Rotorua and distant peaks. Participate in a wine tasting, led by the winery's friendly and informative owners, or just sit back with a glass of wine, nibble at a cheese board, and take in the scenery. Before heading up, consider stopping by the winery itself (at the base of the gondola), to see how a truckload of grapes turns into a bottle of fine wine.
