The day started with me being picked up in Woodend and the first winery we stopped at was Terrace Edge, overlooking the Waipara River. The Chapmans were very accommodating and I enjoyed their selection of five wines. Purchased a bottle of their Liquid Geography Riesling and a jar of their Kalamata Olives (so delicious). The Olives are grown on site. We then went to the Waipara Springs Winery and Restaurant, where we had a most excellent tasting including their gin which was just divine!! We had lunch here, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The pickled fennel and wee red capsicum with a pink filling were absolutely delicious too!
We then went to Torlesse Winery where Kym entertained us with wine tastings and hilarious anecdotes. Our last winery we stopped at was Georges Road Wines where Kirk showed us his passion for his wines and being fully involved in all aspects of production. Thank you to Jesse, our driver, for the interesting information of the Waipara region. It was a fantastic day

I booked a private tour with my wife and parents for my birthday last weekend.

Our trip was so great that I've been inspired to write a review! The transport was comfortable, the tour went like clockwork (e.g. lunch was on the table five mins after we sat down), the timing was perfect, and we felt comfortable and well looked after.

We had lunch at one of the larger wineries (Waipara Springs) then tastings at two smaller, family-run vineyards we wouldn't have found if we weren't on a tour. All were fantastic.

Chloe and Belen were fantastic - they were really professional, friendly and attentive. We all felt comfortable relaxing, being ourselves, and even singing a tune (or ten) as we drove.

If you want to support local business during the next stage of the pandemic, this is a great way to do it!

This was amazing! I went for my birthday and we were absolutely looked after. We chose the trip with three wineries and snacks. The snacks included were chips and crackers on the bus which was actually so great. All of the staff at the three wineries were knowledgeable and taught us heaps. Such great value for money!!! Would definitely go again.

I have never been on a wine tour before and was asked to organise this wine tour for my work mates and I ( 16 ppl- 2 vans). Everyone had a great fun trip to the 3 wineries and back, I might be the new favourite employee!

Jesse was very accomodating to a van full of women who loved their music and sang the whole way!! Great communication prior to booking, Jesse was happy to answer all my questions.

The tour guides were punctual and very friendly.

We got some snacks from Cheeky Kea to go with the wine tastings, and a yummy lunch that was pre organised( they even catered for Gluten free and vegetarian).

We even had some photos taken , thank you Belen.

Great service, great price, highly recommend for a hassle free fun day out .

Will happily use again in the future.

Hope your business blossoms as you deserve it.

Thanks again

Ioana:)

We were chauffeured around by Jesse for 2 days & we had a lot of fun. My bucket list item was to travel the Tranzalpine which was all good until we couldn't get the return trip. In steps Jesse where while having a chat about his wine tours I mention the transfer problem & he offers to come get us. Easy peasy, best of both worlds! Highly recommend train over & being driven back so you can see this bits you can't from the train such as the seriously impressive Otira Viaduct. Shame about the distinct lack of "everywhere" kea!
Next day we trekked up to Hanmer for a hot pool sesh followed by an awesome wine tour.
Loved the personal service & behind the scenes peek with Kirk @ Georges Road. Yummo platter lunch & amazing tasting at Torlesse (so amazing a case was shipped home for future imbibing!).
Final stop on a totally top day was the stunningly situated Terrace Edge.
Thanks for a brilliant couple of trips Jesse, can't recommend #cheekywinetours highly enough.
PS. Thanks for pulling the playlist together, nothing like a good old-fashioned roadie sing-along!

I booked a last minute wine tour with cheeky kea tours with friends after another one cancelled. What a blessing in disguise this was! What we got instead was so much better and I’ve never been on such a fun, relaxed wine tour with no stress and no rushing and such great value. Jesse & team felt more like part of the tour than our guides and made sure we had a great time at every stop. I’ve been on a lot of wine tours and I can’t recommend them enough. Lunch was delicious and tastings were generous, no judgement if you didn’t know about wine too. He even asked what songs we wanted for the playlist on the bus. Do yourself a favour and book this one over the others for a smaller, more personal and relaxed wine experience in North Canterbury. Thanks cheeky kea wine tours!

Had the most amazing day touring the Waipara region. The team at Cheeky were super helpful and didn't hesitate to provide us with anything we required. Everyone on our tour had a great time and I would recommend Cheeky to anyone thinking of organising a Waipara Wine Tour.

I used Cheeky Wine Tours for a Hens party a few weekends ago. We had almost 30 people attending and Jesse and the team and Cheeky Wine Tours made the experience so easy. Jesse was so accomodating in the organisation process even when I changed the plan constantly to accommodate all the guests.

on the day our driver Trish was great. She was the perfect blend of doing her job to keep us all safe but understanding that hens party should be fun and noisey.

The venues we went to were perfect and they even provided snacks along the way and took many photos throughout the day.

All n all I can not recommend Cheeky Wine tours highly enough!

Excellent trip to 4 vineyards with Jessie, prompt pickup from our hotel and then lots of lovely wine all day, neat that at most of the cellar doors the owners were the ones to tell you about their wines. The lunch was yum at Waipara Springs Winery and even a lovely Port at the end of the day at Torlesse Wines. Our group of friends thoroughly enjoyed this tour and we would recommend.

We had a really great day. Our van driver Crystal was wonderful! The wineries were lovely, the lunch was delicious. The amount of time we spent at each location was perfect. Jesse was great to organise this with and was very accomodating if I had to change anything e.g. group numbers, etc. Would highly recommend- thanks!
