A beautiful bay, and a lovely vineyard with an excellent Malbec! There were also lots of seats and comfy bean bags to take in the view, and the drive there wasn't as long as we thought it would be. Definitely worth the visit.

This vineyard is quite a drive from Oneroa or Onetangi but is highly recommended. The drive to the East End gets you through open farmlands with terrific vistas of ocean and islands - just drive slowly and look for other vehicles on narrow gravel road....More
