Wine-Tasting Trips

Auckland is surrounded by some of New Zealand’s best wine regions. Less than an hour north of the city lies Matakana, with more than 30 rolling vineyards. Takatu grows standout Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Pinot Gris.

Just south, there’s Clevdon—don’t miss Puriri Hills for rich red blends.

Or visit a few of the vineyards on Waiheke Island. Obsidian and Kennedy Point Vineyard are more grassroots; Cable Bay Vineyard, Te Whau Vineyard, and Stonyridge Vineyard all have established reputations.
