Visited this winery on Waiheke Island yesterday. Loved the wine so much we brought back a few bottles. Tragedy struck when we got off the ferry in Auckland and the bottom of the box opened, spilling wine bottles in the street! Unfortunately, one bottle didn't survive the drop. We reached out to Obsidian Vineyard to see if we could buy... More

The title says it all, my wife and I loved our time at Obsidian. This is exactly what a wine tasting should be like. We arrived via the walking path between wineries and were immediately greeted with some water to quench our thirst. After an hour of tasting and conversation with the staff, we bought a few bottles and headed... More

This was our last stop on our bike around the island! I loved the tasting! It was so informative and the wine lady knew her stuff! You get 5 generous tastes for $10!

I hiked out to Obsidian and it was by far the best wines I tried all day. They make beautiful well rounded reds with atypical varietals and the atmosphere feels off the beaten path and somewhat exclusive as a result.

Best wine we tried on the island, and the walking trail to other vineyards is brilliant. You should partner with Wai Knot with the easy walkable access to 4-5 vineyards.

This is how wine tasting used to be and I miss it! Great wine and great staff to help you learn about their wine. It's a basic setup with none of the fancy wine tasting setup that most wineries now have. I liked Obsidian very much and will go back. No food on offer, which was fine for us.

So great I had to buy a bottle to take home, the 2014 Syrah. Tasting is $10 or free if you buy a bottle and worth lugging it back to the mainland. Lovely service, we where lucky in getting a table straight away and with the long uphill walk from the previous vineyard the cold water was greatly appreciated.
