Since I had such an incredible wine tour with Phil 5 years ago, I knew he would put together a perfect wine tour package for my 51st birthday, and I was not disappointed. Absolutely outstanding experience! Phil created a Waiheke Island VIP Wine Tour for our family, and it was truly an unforgettable experience. Perfect weather, great locally produced wines, and the absolute best fine dining experience. Started with a private wine tasting, and then had a melt-in-your-mouth lamb lunch and dessert at Mudbrick Vineyard and Restaurant. The flavors and attention to detail were sensational, and the service was meticulous with knowledgeable, friendly staff. The icing on the cake was the stunning scenery while you dine with incredible views of Hauraki Gulf, Rangitoto, and the Auckland area. Next, Phil took us to Kennedy Point, a boutique organic vineyard. Lovely location with gorgeous expansive views over Putiki Bay, as well as beautiful olive trees, and delicious manuka honey. It's the only organic winery on Waiheke Island, and their wines are made with genuine passion. I especially enjoyed hearing their story on their award-winning Syrah. Our last stop was Te Motu Vineyard. We loved the relaxed tasting experience. The gorgeous rolling hills and delicious wine provide the ideal backdrop for some afternoon wine tasting. The Kokoro (Malbec with a bit of Syrah) was our favorite. :) It was a PERFECT birthday indeed ! Thanks again, Phil, for making my day so special.

What a great tour of West Auckland! Phil is a great guide, extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of wine and the history of the wine industry in Auckland. We loved the wineries we visited and the vip treatment we received. The tour was professional and comfortable whilst still having lots of laughs and an all round great time. Thanks again Phil!

We did the Kumeu Wine & Lunch Day Tour in late February. The day was a fantastic day out and Phil is a great tour guide. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and has great excitement showing off the region. The communication we had about where to meet and the organisation was fantastic. Phil fitted around our schedule Soljans is a great place for lunch and a sneaky dessert. We were very fortunate to visit Kumeu River as they were starting to pick and crush the grapes. It made for an even more special day. Westbrook Winery is situated in a beautiful location. Will definitely be booking to do another tour with Phil in the near future.

Had a great day out exploring the wineries in West Auckland, lovely little touches with the cheese board and stopping at the market for an ice-cream. Phil was a great guide and will definitely keep him in mind for a Matakana trip!
