When you think of wine-tasting trips in New Zealand you imagine scenic drives through Marlborough, Otago, Hawkes Bay and Nelson. But the good news for those living in the north land is there are some impressive wineries much closer to home than you might realise - some of the best cellar doors are within half an hour from the Auckland CBD. Kiwis are known to be avid winemakers and drinkers and with more than 500 wineries throughout the country, it would be hard to not indulge in our top-quality vino. Visiting one of the many wineries within New Zealand is a must-do and now more than ever would be a great support to our local tourism industry. West Auckland has been at the forefront in developing new wine styles, trailing new grape varieties and importantly, developing and growing new international markets. Dalmatian history is everywhere in West Auckland.
