Description

Set out for the black sand beaches of Muriwai on this scenic tour to hunt down Auckland's best wines and most stunning settings. Travel through rolling farmlands filled with fruit orchards, see Australasian Gannetts flying over black sand beaches along the coast, and step into cellars to taste-test varietals with experienced vintners.

Join your guide at your Auckland hotel with convenient pick-up before you head out of town. Start your day with a winding ride through pastoral landscapes dotted with orchards bearing everything from plums and blueberries to strawberries, apples, and—of course—grapes. Pass through Kumeu, Huapai, and Waimauku on your way to Muriwai, where you can scan the rocky headlands for nesting Gannets and stroll down black sand beaches while taking in views of the Tasman Sea.

Continue on to West Brooke Wines, where you try award-winning vintages at a cellar that's been in operation since 1935. Sip light glasses of chardonnay, robust pours of malbec, and complex pinot noir while you chat with vintners, and then end your day with more tastes at Coopers Creeek whose classic setting and innovative blends are the perfect final note before returning to Auckland.

Visit the Muriwai Gannet Colony, A New Zealand Conservation Deparment protected Regional Park. See Gannets nest and raise their young. These are migratory birds so their are no Gannets May - August.

Finally visit Coopers Creek Vineyard to tast a range of white and reds a the cellar door. Coopers creek is a family company who have made wine since the early 1980's. They have the most comprehensive range of Varietals than any other cmpnay in New Zealand. Wine maker Simon Nunns is a multi award winning wine maker and wine judge.
