KUMEU WINE COUNTRY TOUR

– FULL DAY $219ea

The Kumeu wine area is Northwest Auckland’s pride and joy.  A region of green rolling hills, this is where pioneering winemakers from Croatia established wineries and vineyards in the late 1800’s introducing a number of old grape varieties – making wines that are no longer fashionable today.  They did, however, trigger a long-standing tradition of wine-making in Auckland.  These wineries today rank amongst the best in the country. We visit a selection of four vineyards from Kumeu River, Soljans, Coopers Creek, Babich, Kerr Farm and Westbrook. Here you can taste the great wines of New Zealand including Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Otago Pinot Noir, Hawkes Bay Syrah and Cabernet blends, and Kumeu Chardonnay, as well as other locally grown varieties like Pinot Gris, Rose, Malbec, Montepulciano, and Gerwurztraminer. This tour also takes you to a spectacular view of Auckland from the Waitakere Ranges.

Tour includes

  • Free door to door service
  • Auckland’s best view from the Waitakere Ranges
  • Muriwai Beach and its Gannet colony (August to April)
  • Visit to four wineries with wine tastings
  • Tasting fees and lunch at a winery (open menu one course lunch only)

“Booked the afternoon tour during a 2 day visit to Auckland. We signed on to visit 2 wineries and a brewery. From the initial contact, the responsiveness was great. Got a confirmation e-mail the day of the tour letting us know exactly where to meet Ross. He appeared right on time and we set off for our tour which included seeing some beautiful scenery on the way to our first stop.”
