Obsidian wines are the true embodiment of their place of origin. Every exquisite glass of Obsidian speaks of this unique terroir, encapsulating not only the character of the weathered soils at Onetangi, home to Obsidian's vineyard on Waiheke Island, but the coastal beauty of the surrounding environment.Tucked away in an amphitheatre setting amongst the vines, Obsidian offers wine tastings in a relaxed and friendly environment. Our knowledgeable cellar door staff will take you through a range of Obsidian Reserve & Non-Reserve wines.All are available to purchase in the shop. Winter months open Weekends 12pm - 4pm

Delicious wine with a great setting. Definitely need more staff as only one on a warm Saturday afternoon and unable to provide the attention that the wines deserved and left having to apologise to us.

Beautiful location with walks around the vineyard. We were given a tasting of 5 wines each which wasn't charged for when we bought 6 bottles. I particularly like their Cab/Merlot, and their Reserve Chardonnay is very good. Your mileage may vary of course, but if you like wine in a nice environment it's well worth going to see Obsidian.

we had a very enjoyable experience, the white wines were light and fruity, perfect summer wines. The reds were almost as good, a bit weaker than what we are used to drinking back in the states. However, this was the only winery to offer cheese and crackers with the tastings, so we appreciated it. We were taken here by a... More

This winery came as a recommendation from locals as it was their favorite and one of ours on the trip. Appreciated that they enhance their tastings with some nibbles and enjoyed so many of their wines.

This was the most pleasant vineyard I visited while at Waiheke Island. The stuff was very friendly and the wines very good! Also they had cheese and toasts to have in between the wine tastings, which I really appreciated.

Definitely worth visiting for wine tasting. The stuff is friendly and you can feel that those people are huge wine lovers and are willing to share this love with customers:). Cheese and crackers served with wine tasting is a great idea too)

Waiheke island is the most Mediterranean part of New Zealand. The island is a rolling gem, with lovely lush vegetation, wooded coves and some great beaches. Its very relaxed here. The bus driver dropped us off before the winery and we then went down a steepish path down to the little winery shop. The welcome was very warm and we... More

I popped up in Obsidian Vineyard a bit randomly, after a loooong day bicycling through Waiheke island. And it was such a delight ! It was just before 5pm, the Maître de Chai was still there and lead a passionate wine tasting in the outside area. That was dreamy !
