Great selection of olive oils & balsamic vinegars
Nov 2017 • Couples
Went here to try some of the local Waiheke olive oils. We were given a very pleasant oil & vinegar tasting talk. All the locally produced oils can be tasted and they have selection of very high class balsamic vinegars which were divine!
Needless to say we headed home with a good selection of oil & vinegar!

Olive Oil tasting
Apr 2017 • Couples
We toured the olive farm and was also able to watch some of the crop of grapes being made into olive oil. Kerry was very patient and explained the entire process to us. We tasted all of his olive oils and spices and were so pleased. The olive oils were some of the best we have tasted. He gave us useful hints for different uses of the spices and different recipes. It was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend stopping by Azzuro Groves.

Beautiful Olive Oils, Great Experience
Apr 2017 • Family
We visited here after first visiting Rangihoua Estate, but I wish we had visited here first! The olive oils were amazing - all 4 had fantastic taste and quality. The owner walked us through each of the oils and olive types used, before moving on to the balsamic vinegars and meat rubs. All the products here are top quality, with beautiful gift packs available to purchase - the balsamic vinegar bottles are gorgeous. Would thoroughly recommend going here if you like olive oil - fantastic service and quality products.

So helpful!
Feb 2017 • Couples
We just happened to be passing and thought we would pop in. The owner was so helpful and knowledgable - he obviously has a passion for his olives and their produce. The tasting was incredible , their award winning oil was incredible and the balsamic vinegar from Modena was out of this world. We have 3 olive trees at home that aren't producing - the owner gave us so easy sounds delicious advice and we are trying it out now we are back home. If you love a good olive oil it's well worth a visit out - another plus is that the views are to die for!

We had an enjoyable visit to this business. The owner was on hand to introduce us to their delicious olive oils, plus the other gourmet balsamic vinegars, rubs, and dips. If you want to get a chance to taste some of the excellent local produce, go here.

Cutting Edge Flavour with Old Fashioned Service
Jan 2017 • Couples
My husband and I first fell in love with Azzuro Groves while visiting Waiheke for a romantic getaway. Great browsing and the owners are so very friendly. Tasting is enthusiastically encouraged. While back in Waiheke with the family last year, we purchased a gift for friends who were looking after our animals back home. This year, we didn't make it to the island, but I purchased some special Balsamic vinegar online for the same friend. I contacted Kerry via email when it didn't arrive. Much to my surprise, he knocked on my door after personally investigating what had happened. There was an unusual glitch with the courier -- so he decided to deliver it himself. Because I had mentioned the Balsamic was a gift, he included a special presentation box. I will be forever grateful and loyal to this fantastic family-owned company.
