Description: 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.

We had the long lunch. This consists of various courses brought to you over a couple of hours. After a few courses you are given as long as you like to walk around the gardens and give yourself a rest before the next courses. The food was really delicious and it was no problem that one of our party didn't eat sea food, an alternative was offered. The setting was absolutely beautiful and all the staff that we encountered were very jovial and extremely helpful. All in all a delightful experience.

The grounds, the service and the food are all phenomenal. It is situated well off the beaten track, but yet it was still relatively busy on a Monday afternoon. We had the long lunch, which takes several hours to comfortably make your way through with leisurely breaks between courses. Patrons are welcome to explore the phenomenal grounds between courses. If you have an afternoon to spare, this is a fantastic destination with the long lunch a great option.

We had an amazing long lunch here recently for my sisters Hens party. James was so accommodating and made the whole experience perfect. Everyone in our group commented on how beautiful the food and wine was and the service from the staff was flawless. Would love to come again some time, couldn't recommend Poderi Crisci enough :)

Lovely setting, great service, excellent wine, underwhelming food. Had the long lunch which was tasty but nothing special. Even those in our party who had been previously were disappointed in the food this time round. So many better options in Auckland

We were excited to come here as have heard so many great things, it didn't quite live up to our expectations. It's a beautiful location on Waiheke a bit or a trek to get to but the location is worth it when you get there. The service was attentive but the maitre d was grumpy and seemed like they didn't want to be there. The food was good but not the standard I would have expected. Hopefully just an off day so I'll give it another try next time.
