Muriwai Scenic Morning or Afternoon Wine Tour
Center of Auckland
Center of Auckland
Enjoy a 4 hour tour aboard a minibus that will take you to visit different places in the city. This tour has two options in the morning or afternoon, the meeting point is in the center of the city of Auckland where you will be picked up by your guide that takes you to the market garden and the Kumeu lifestyle areas, Huapai and Waimauku. The name Huapai in Maori translates as "the place of the fruit", which is not surprising given the abundance of plums, blueberries, strawberries, apples and, of course, grapes grown in the region.
Then with your guide you will go through beautiful undulating sheep and cattle to Muriwai, a popular place among surfers and very famous for its black sand beaches. There you will see the gannets all year long courting, mating and raising their young preparing them for the winter migration. You will also appreciate the spectacular views of the Tasman Sea and the west coast from the viewpoints.
Then you will visit the family property of West Brook Wines, established in 1935 for a tasting in the cellar. Located in the picturesque Waimauku Valley, where you can taste the award-winning Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Malbec from your own vineyard, as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir from Marlborough estates. Later you will visit The Hunting Lodge Winery and enjoy a tasting of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Marsanne / Viognier blend, as well as two Marlborough Pinot Noirs and a Hawkes Bay Syrah in a beautiful modern setting. At the end of the tour you will return to the city center of Auckland.
