This was our second visit to Poderi Crisci. Whilst our last visit was fantastic, we were really disappointed this time. The menu choices was very limited. My friends had the tuna and said it was fantastic but for $38 it was very small, you would...More

enjoyed a long lazy sunday lunch on a cold and windy day. Perfect, as was the Chardonnay! Located in a very remote part of Waiheke Island so your own transport is a good idea.

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.
