AkeAke VineyardBay of Islands Wine Tour

Kerikeri is a place to indulge and have fun. On this tour experience some of New Zealand’s finest quality wines. The cost is $135 per person which includes all tastings and a platter.

Each tour has a maximum of 11 passengers. The tour starts at the Paihia i-site, pickup time is 1.30 pm, we also pickup in Kerikeri (BP Service Station) at 1.55pm.

Our first stop is Marsden Estate, which was started by the McIvor family some 20 years ago. Here customers can enjoy six wine tastings in the relaxed atmosphere of its courtyard which overlooks the lake and vines.

Planted in the early nineties, Marsden Estate’s 10 acres of vineyards comprise Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Muscat, Merlot, Pinotage, Chambourcin, Syrah and Tempranillo.

Our next stop is the Ake Ake vineyard, a family-run boutique operation set just outside Kerikeri, and here customers will sample their organically grown wines, which include Chambourcin, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, and Sauvignon Blanc, plus enjoy a platter style late lunch.

Our final stop is the Kainui Road family-owned boutique vineyard, set in 70 hectares. They offer a wide range of wines including Tempranillo, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Syrah.

During your visit, why not try some unique craft beer? Gary at Kainui Brew Co. is constantly experimenting with new ways to incorporate a modern twist into traditional brewing techniques.

From here we take customers back to either Kerikeri or the Paihia I-site.

I must say we had the best time on this Wine tour, the Tour Guide was amazing and his knowledge of the area was fantastic, the places he took us too were just as amazing I would recommend this tour for groups, work functions or family groups, ours was a work function and he made it the most amazing trip for us, Well done and thank you so much we had the most amazing time. If I have the chance I would do it again!!
