Full Description

Each tour has a maximum of 10 passengers. The tour starts and finishes at the Paihia i-site, pickup time is 1.30 pm. The ticket price includes the cost of wine/beer tasting along with a platter style late lunch.

Our first stop is the Ake Ake vineyard, a family-run boutique operation set just outside Kerikeri, and here customers will sample their organically-grown wines, which include Chambourcin, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Chardonnay, Tempranillo and Sauvignon Blanc. Tour the vineyard and see how the grapes are grown before tasting six samples of their range.

From Ake Ake we move onto Marsden Estate, which was started by the McIvor family some 20 years ago. Here customers can enjoy six wine tastings and a platter lunch in the relaxed atmosphere of its courtyard which overlooks the lake and vines.

Our next stop is the award winning Makana Chocolate Factory, here you can watch delicious chocolates, truffles, caramels and toffees being made by hand. Taste samples of their wares, all made from high-quality ingredients in small batches, and of course shop for gifts – or just indulge yourself!

Next door is the highly acclaimed Kauri Workshop, which offers a wide range of bowls, platters and other products made from swamp kauri.

Our final stop is  the Phat House Brewery in Haruru.  Their beers are naturally crafted, unfiltered, unpasteurised and preservative free.

The brewery offers a wide range of beers from which customers can sample up to four different products of their choice.

We finish the tour with a short return trip to Paihia.
