We stopped in for a wine tasting but it felt rushed like they were trying to fit as many people into an hour as physically possible. The wines were fine but nothing you could get excited about. The views are pretty great. They’ve got a...More

Have visited here many times and always have a great day out at the Batch. Love using the bus up from the ferry at $6 its a lot cheaper than any alternatives.

We’ve had a holiday home on Waiheke for almost three years now and have eaten pretty much everywhere on the island now. I was curious as to why no locals ever mention a place called ‘The Batch’, and neither had I tasted their wine, so...More
