Day 2 – Waiheke Island Experience including lunch
The tour will commence with a drive along the scenic northern route, taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and beyond to the Coromandel Peninsula.
Visit Kennedy Point Vineyard where they produce fully certified organic Syrah, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Rosé wines. Here you will also taste estate–grown olive oil and New Zealand avocado oil. The winery decks are tucked among their 300-year-old Pohutukawa trees overlooking Waiheke Island’s
Kennedy Bay and are the perfect setting to sample a range of fine wines.
Enjoy some local Te Matuku Bay Oysters and a small cheese board to sample with your wines.
Next enjoy wine tasting at Casita Miro partnered with house made food tastings. Casita Miro provides a Mediterranean tapas menu with extensive sea and vineyard views from their beautiful art deco style pavilion. Bond Estate primarily grows Syrah and Bordeaux varietals, along with beautiful Pinot Gris and a small amount of Viognier, which is used for blending with their Syrah.
