  • Beautiful drive out to the vineyard, which looks lovely, and in a stunning location; but it was shut. We went on the information in the island wine guide, which lists it as being open all year, 7 days...  more »
  • Beautiful, scenic view. As it was winter when we visited, it wasn't very popular which meant we had great service and an easy trip. Can imagine it gets quite fun in the summer w the large lawn out fro...  more »

  • Worth the extra cab ride out to Man of War! Very nice atmosphere and wine servers that knew all the details of the various wines and history of the vineyard. Food was delicious and was able to lounge outside in peace even though there was other groups/families there too. Top vineyard that we went to on the island and can't wait to order their wine again! Highly recommend!
  • One of our favourite places on Waiheke. It's a very laid-back vinyard wine tasting experience. Quite a long journey by car over narrow twisty roads but well worth the tip. As it is right on the water with a nice beach front swimming is good and many people come by boat. Very child friendly you can relax on the lawns in beanbags while the children play cricket etc. Great wines without the high cost & fuss of many of the other vinyards.
  • Great service! Let's you try any wine you would like and makes you feel like the most important customer. It was lovely having a wine whilst looking at the beach. Definitely try the rosé!
  • This winery has it all. They have free wine tastings (up to 5 wines) outside of peak season. Great wines, yummy snacks (don't come here expecting a large meal), an amazing view and a laid back attitude. Did I mention the view is incredible
  • Amazing atmosphere, very good wine. The food they had was very good, but they didn't have too many options for food. It is a wine tasting place afterall...
