Owner description: Obsidian wines are the true embodiment of their place of origin. Every exquisite glass of Obsidian speaks of this unique terroir, encapsulating not only the character of the weathered soils at Onetangi, home to Obsidian's vineyard on Waiheke Island, but the coastal beauty of the surrounding environment.Tucked away in an amphitheatre setting amongst the vines, Obsidian offers wine tastings in a relaxed and friendly environment. Our knowledgeable cellar door staff will take you through a range of Obsidian Reserve & Non-Reserve wines.All are available to purchase in the shop. Winter Opening Hours: 11:00am - 4:00pm Friday through Sunday.

“Very nice red wines”

Obsidian and Weeping Sands are beautiful wines. The tasting is done in a nice surrounding and they also offer platters.

“Down-to-earth wine tasting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

It’s a small vineyard a short walk up the hill from Onetangi beach. Compared to the “fancy” wineries found elsewhere on the island, this one has a very down to earth attitude. You get to taste several wines standing by the serving table or sitted on old wine barrels under a canvas canopy, and get good introduction to the different wines you taste. The tasting costs NZD 5 per person for 5 wines, but if you buy a bottle with you, the tasting is free. The wines are nice, and the experience is much more personal then in the big vineyards.
