Join Us For A Bay Of Islands Wine Tour

Embark upon our Bay Of Islands wine tours and take the opportunity to explore both the beautiful Bay Of Islands and sample some of the locally produced wines.

Our tour departs from Pahia (also known as The Jewel of the Bay Of Islands), a bustling seaside location that is frequented by thousands of vistors each summer.

We will be visiting three wineries on this tour, these include:

Marsden Estate, Ake Ake and the Fat Pig Winery (tour price includes all tastings)

Our final stop before the return journey to Pahia township will be a visit to the stunning Haruru Waterfalls, nature at its very best.
