This is a highly respected winery with deep roots. Kelly was our primary host and did a great job of helping us understand the care they give to their product, as well as many things about New Zealand in general and New Zealand wine in particular. It is a great way to learn alot, sample some wines and not leave the city. Call for an appointment

My husband and I travel to New Zealand from the East coast of the US every year to visit friends and family. For the past several years, it is our tradition to start our visit the day we arrive at the Foxes Island Cellar in Auckland. There is no better way to kick off our New Zealand journey than with this delicious and amazing Kiwi hospitality experience. After parking right out front in the private lot, I walk through the front door,to be instantly transported to an other-worldly space by the gentle flowing decor. And then then a glass is placed in my hand followed the pour I’ve been waiting for. Within seconds of the wine passing my lips, I immediately know, on a cellular level, that I am home. Kelly and John have created an amazing space for to take leave of the hustle and bustle of life in the city or, as in my case, a warm welcome to this beautiful country. As I think of it now, I long to go home to a beautiful Foxes Island Pinot Noir, some soft jazz, and a wood fire at our favorite place in the Coromandel, the Koru Riverside Retreat. For me this is heaven on earth. On my bucket list for our next trip, I plan to book the space and invite everyone I know for an exclusive tasting experience. It’s clearly a primo location for a corporate or special event function such as a engagement or birthday party. Kelly also makes it really easy for us to surprise our friends and whanau with a beautiful bottle of wine delivered to their doorstep. I’ve received many joyful thank you messages with photographs of the lovely wrapping and personalized notes that Kelly takes such care to provide. The Cellar is a sparkling gem in the city of Auckland and the wine I just can’t recommend highly enough. Kelly and John’s hospitality is five stars plus and will leave you feeling pampered and appreciated.

Exceeded my expectation of a last minute, pop-in wine tasting before my flight out of Auckland. Kelly was extremely friendly, open to questions, and provided excellent pieces of information on what makes their wines unique. Would definitely plan on returning when I do go back!

Wine tasting at Foxes Island with Kelly Brown, or John Belsham is an extremely special occasion – Kelly and John have such specialised knowledge, experience and passion in the wine industry are an absolute delight. With such remarkable wines to taste, wonderful people, very interesting cellar and to have this experience right in Central Auckland made for a very enjoyable, interesting and tasteful experience. The Cellar door is very conveniently located just off Ponsonby Road’s beaten track so very easy to find with convenient parking right outside and with a wonderful and refreshing space to experience the wine tasting in. It is a treat to have expert information on wines whilst tasting and then buying directly from the producer. We found new wines and old favourites that were pure pleasure. Carolyn and I definitely recommend Foxes Island beautiful wines and their wonderful wine tasting!!
