The staff are always friendly and the wines superb. Their French chef is creating some delicious dishes. We had the Scallop and Prawn risotto... just delightful. If you like cheese he usually has some wonderful options.

Passage Rock is the home of great Waiheke Island wine. Their modest setting showcases wines that are anything but, be prepared to have your senses blown away. The winery is out of the way but well worth the journey.

This was our favourite vineyard on the island, not at all pretentious like some of the others, great food (definitely recommend the delicious platter for two), fabulous wine and very friendly staff. Loved it!

We were treated to a fascinating tour through 8 different wines from this superb vineyard by the lovely Danu. This was followed by a lunch of 3 excellent pizzas shared between 4 of us. If you love wine in NZ this is a must visit.
