What's included in your Auckland Wine tour:
Barry has created wine tasting tours that capture the heritage and charm of the pioneering West Auckland Winemakers. Your winery tour starts with a pickup at your door (from North Shore, Central Auckland or West Auckland and heads out west to Kumeu Wine Country (Magical Matakana Tour heads north). Your host will share his wealth of local knowledge and you will learn some of the history of Auckland as well as experience some classic kiwi humour.
Our 1st stop is Soljan’s Estate Winery and Barry will take you for a walk around the vineyards and through the wineries to talk about the wine making processes and how the humble grape is grown then crafted into 'the nectar of the gods'. You'll arrive thirsty for more at the wine cellar door to be welcomed by the friendly staff to wine taste a 'flight' of their finest wine creations. The knowledgeable staff at the wineries will also be able to discuss with you the different wine varieties and grape styles and answer any curly questions you may have.
After the Auckland wine tasting you will be served a sumptuous lunch to be served at your leisure. After lunch Barry's Wine Tour then heads further into Kumeu Wine Country, visiting the panoramic Westbrook Winery where you will have a further tasting of 6-10 wines.
We then head to Hallertau Brewery to enjoy hand crafted beer, or cider and wine. Snacks are also available.
After leaving Hallertau Brewery we will take you back in air-conditioned comfort over Auckland's North Shore with views of our beautiful Auckland City from the Harbour Bridge and then Barry's Wine Tours deliver you back to your destination – we hope your agree to have had 'Auckland's best wine tour experience'.
