Luxury wine tours around the Matakana Coast and Kumeu Wine Country. Small groups, personal service, informed guides and lots of treats along the way. And you don't have to worry about driving.
Great Taste Tours are based in Henderson, Auckland, and will pick you up and drop you off from wherever you are staying (Auckland inner city).
Tours featured include 'Great Tastes Of Makatana' and 'Kumeu Wine And Nature Tour', both full-day excursions, and 'A Taste Of Kumeu Wine Country' for a half-day trip.
Inclusive activities on the Makatana trip include cheese tasting, honey sampling, a visit to a boutique chocolate factory (yum...), three prize-winning wineries with wine-tasting (naturally), the Morris and James pottery, lunch, afternoon tea and as many soft drinks as you can make room for.
The full-day Kumeu excursion includes visits to four wineries, a trip to Muriwai Beach (and its famous black sands), 2-course lunch and a visit to a honey centre. The half-day Kumeu trip packs in three wineries, wine tastings, a tasty cheese platter, and the beach.
Vehicles are air-conditioned, comfortable and, most importantly, someone else is driving!
Your guides will keep you amused, and perhaps teach you a thing or two about this amazing area. And, if the wine doesn't go to your head too quickly, you might even remember the names of some of the corking vintages you were lucky enough to sample throughout the day.
