Overview
Explore award winning wineries of Russell in the Bay of Islands in a luxury, late model Toyota 4x4 SUV with a maximum of 4 passengers in your group. On your private 4-hour guided tour you will visit two of Russell's vineyards, one each end of the tour, and see historic locations, panoramic scenery, forests and rural farming areas away from the crowds. Your tour is adaptable with no fixed schedule, allowing you to stop for photos, ask questions, take your time or relax and talk with your local driver. Due to the seasonal opening hours of the wineries this tour is only available during the Northland summer season.

Tui had the most delightful time meeting you and your family. Great company, good food and she knows the wine was good (having researched before the day). She enjoyed it so much both of us had to go back the next day for lunch together!

Thank you Vivian (and Vern), suiting the pace to your energy levels on the day is important to make things as enjoyable as possible. I wonder, how many cases of wine has Vern ordered for delivery yet? Regards, Mark.
