Made the trip to Waiheke specifically for wine tasting. The hop on hop off is a great way to hit many of the fine wineries. But, Obsidian stood out above the others. First was Charlotte and her knowledge and presentation of the wines. Then there...More

A great little spot for sitting and sipping great wine! No restaurant here (just a heads up) but really good wine- worth popping in and checking out.

This is a winery that the larger tour groups will not likely include. It is a delightful stop and you'll find quality wines that have received excellent recognition. The setting is delightful and the staff is most engaging and helpful. If you plan to visit...More
