Description

Explore lush rainforests and black sand beaches, visit charming coastal villages and sprawling wineries, and get the chance to dine and sip your way through Auckland's vibrant wine region on this full-day tour. With a knowledgeable guide to lead the way, travel to 3 different wineries scattered along the coast.

Join your guide as they pick you up from your Auckland central hotel and make your way out of town, crossing into the Henderson Valley to Visit Babich Wine established in 1916. Then enter the Waitakere Ranges for sweeping views of the area's forest-draped hills. Continue on to the black sand beaches of Piha and Karekare, snap photos of Lion Rock's cat-like silhouette, and explore the misty base of Karekare's rainforest waterfalls.

Break for lunch at Hallertau Micro Brewery Cafe, where you can select from a menu featuring fresh steak, fish, lamb, or chicken and vegetarian options. At your own expense you might choose to enjoy a tasting paddle of 5 of their handcrafted ales, pilsners and IP or wheat beers. With your appetite for the vine warmed up, head to West Brook Wines, swing into their cellar room to taste Riesling, Saugvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris as well as Malbec and Pinot Noir, served while you chat with cellar team about the estate's founding in 1935. Finally visit Coopers Creek Vineyard for a comprehensive tasting of varietals white and red wines by the fireplace.
