Had a wonderful day touring several wineries yesterday. Geoff was accommodating and fun to spend time with. His immense passion for wine and for the island itself was readily apparent. Give him a call when visiting the island!

Geoff has extensive wine knowledge and can custom your tour to suit your needs. As a Waiheke local his knowledge of the island means you are getting a site seeing tour paired with a wine tasting which was awesome.
