Overview

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.

We pulled in on a wim and are glad we did. The Obsidian wines were little known to us but are wines we will certainly now keep an eye out for. The venue is rustic and just does wine tasting - not drinking. Thats what...More
