Coast to Coast 'Best Of Both Worlds' full day tour with Auckland Wine Trail Tours. (Personalised small group tour)
You'll spend the morning wine tasting at a selection of two of the family owned and operated wineries in the West Coast region along with spectacular sightseeing of Tasman Sea, Muriwai Beach (black sand) & Takapu gannet-colony. Birds nesting roughly July/Aug' to April/May next year. Because we don't all like the same wines this tour does not always visit the same wineries. We do our best to use our nearly 20 years of experience to select the wineries available on the day based on your tastes and interest.
Then relax and enjoy the cross-country drive, approx' 1 hour, to the Pacific East Coast through a variety of scenery including forest, farms & small rural communities. We travel a little further North through some seaside settlements with views of small bays, beaches and the Pacific Ocean.
Stop for a delicious open menu, main course, vineyard restaurant lunch (included) along with wine tastings at one of the small, family owned & operated, boutique wineries in the beautiful Matakana region.
After lunch in the afternoon you'll visit another of Matakana's unique boutique estate wineries, selected based on your interests, to sample their exclusive, locally produced wines before returning to your city accommodation at around 5.00pm.
