We recently visited Rotorua with friends and family (two four-year olds). We decided to do the usual tourist things including the gondola and luge. Imagine our wine-drinking delight when we noticed there was a wine tasting centre at the top of the Gondola - Volcanic Hills.
After we'd sated the appetites of the small people and exhausted them with the activities at the Skyline, we headed into Volcanic Hills brand new premises and were welcomed with open arms! Our children were welcomed and entertained with a playing area (yippee!) which is such a nice change and made us want to stay longer (well done VH!).
Our hosts were fantastic - we spent a good hour talking about and tasting magnificent wines. They went the extra mile in furthering our "grape to wine" education and gave us a much better understanding of how wines worked and why certain people preferred different types of wines.
As a result of our time spent at Volcanic Hills - we are not only fans of their wines (clearly demonstrated in the purchases we made - loving the triangular wine boxes - taking pride of place at home!) but also their philosophy and values.
We loved the venue and are looking forward to returning to Rotorua to see their new site up and running. If ever the team want to open up in Wellington - look us up - we'd be happy to have you join our city!
All the best Volcanic Hills - you rock!
