My wife typically likes a Riesling and typically doesn't chose a sauvignon blanc, but the Jurassic Ridge sauvignon blanc had the just the right fruitiness she likes in a Riesling. The owner is very proud of his vineyard and his products and definitely worth a...More

We visited in December. The owner was in charge of the tasting. A clearly knowledgable man, he seemed to struggle to deal with novices asking apparantly stupid questions. By the end, he had mellowed a little, however I feel he needs to be prepared to...More

So pleased we stopped here. We thought it had the best red wines we tried in Waiheke. Owner is passionate about wine and the environment so was interesting to talk to. Will order wines from here in future.

We stumbled upon this great little winery while cycling round Waiheke Island. A much smaller scale operation, the cellar door was opened just for us. The winemaker was extremely informative and a really interesting bloke. Would love the chance to go back!

Jurassic Ridge offers some of the best wines that we tasted on Waiheke Island. And the winery does not charge tasting fees at the cellar door. We found the owner, who was pouring the wine, to be friendly and knowledgeable. Unlike other reviewers, we enjoyed...More
