We had a lovely al fresco lunch here with a fabulous bottle of wine. It is a long lunch though so be prepared to devote three hours to eating and drinking.

Terrific surrounding, especially if the weather is nice and you can sit outside. Food excellent. Wines nice as well, although preferred the cheaper Chardonnay! (Small comment - music a little too loud for me, but small point).

HI we are arriving about 45 minutes early for the long lunch on Waitangi Day. Do you have wine tastings we can do before lunch- use up some of the time and also decide on what wines we want for lunch!

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.
