We went for the Sunday "long lunch" which you must book for as it gets booked out. We were treated to a wonderful 4 hour degustation lunch, which became 5.5 hours by choice, as we were having such a lovely time. The setting is amazing,...More

Well, today we set out for something yummy, a late lunch that would fill our belly and leave us with that hippy foodie happy feeling. We got what we came for and more. Firstly, the drive here is full of deep valley rolling hills, green...More

One of the best Restaurants I have been to. Delicious food in perfect timing. We felt at home being looked after by James and Sophie.

There are many excellent wine and dine experiences on Waiheke Island, all of which are fabulous (Tantalus, Cable Bay, Casita Miro, The Shed to name a few) but there is nothing that quite matches the food and wine experience that this out-of-the-way winery provides. Just...More

WelcomePoderi Crisci Vineyard and Winery, set in a stunning amphitheatre surrounded by vines and olive trees, has fast become the quintessence of what in Italy is called: Agroturismo. Located 30 minutes from Matiatia in Awaawaroa Bay, Poderi Crisci occupies 7.7 hectares of north-facing slopes in the heart of Waiheke’s unique wine growing microclimate. The narrow rocky strip underlying Poderi Crisci is believed to be 30 million years older than the rest of the Island, boasting soil criss-crossed with mineralised veins. For four generations the Crisci family has been immersed in food and wine, Antonio born and raised in Napoli came to NZ in early 1990 and established Toto Restaurant in Nelson Street . With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza, an institution in Parnell in 1997 and Bar Vino in 2009.
