Huge wine glasses made out of vines will welcome you into this restaurant/wine tasting room. The food was very good and the wines were fantastic to taste, definitely worth the money and time.

Passage Rock is the home of great Waiheke Island wine. Their modest setting showcases wines that are anything but, be prepared to have your senses blown away. The winery is out of the way but well worth the journey.

The staff are always friendly and the wines superb. Their French chef is creating some delicious dishes. We had the Scallop and Prawn risotto... just delightful. If you like cheese he usually has some wonderful options.
