Join us for a Bay of Islands Wine Tour
The Bay of Islands is the birthplace of winemaking in New Zealand, with Samuel Marsden planting the first NZ vines and Sir James Busby cultivating sparkling wine on the Waitangi Estate even before the treaty was signed.
Come along with Paihia’s original wine tour company as we take you on a fun, informative trip into the heart of Northland’s winemaking region.
Along the way you will enjoy the wines of the boutique, organic Ake Ake vineyard, and the award-winning stunning Marsden Estate, where you’ll also be treated to a grazing platter and the rustic small family owned vineyard “Fat Pig”.
This is small group touring at its finest, travelling in comfort aboard our modern air conditioned minibuses, accompanied by your passionate, knowledgeable Driver Guide.
If you are a larger group wanting to book, please get in touch directly and we can offer our group rates. Our daily tours are small groups, however we can accommodate up to 36 people on request.
*Please Note: Vineyards are subject to change due to seasonal availability.
