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 enjoyed this tasting a lot. The server was very friendly and informative. All of the wines were very good. Only downside is that they don't have a license so you can only buy tastings or bottles. We bought a bottle but would have liked...More

This was our favorite wine tasting: the wine is coming from grapes of the island only. And they are the only one doing so. The staff is just adorable, taking their time to explain and speak about the wineyard. The setting is lovely. We loved...More
