Tauranga Tasting Tours
A Great Way to Savour The Bay!
LOCAL TASTING TOUR FOR CRUISE-SHIP PASSENGERS FROM/TO PORT OF TAURANGA OR LOCAL ACCOMMODATION
The Local Tasting Tour commences by travelling North through scenic countryside for a presentation & tasting at the boutique Karangahake Estate (formerly Ohinemuri Winery), in the picturesque Karangahake Gorge. The tasting is accompanied by a sumptuous platter.
We then return towards Tauranga to the Wine Portfolio, now home to the prestigious, medal-winning wines of Leveret (formerly Morton) Estate & Mills Reef Winery. (The former Mills Reef Winery no longer exists.) This will be another opportunity to sample excellent NZ wines, and to ask questions about NZ wine-styles & terroir.
The tour returns to Tauranga for dessert & a cocktail at one of Tauranga's most popular restaurants, Takara, bordering Eat Street in the bustling CBD, overlooking our beautiful harbour.
We then return you to ship-side (or to local accommodation) via what we claim is the best beach in the Southern Hemisphere.
A minimum of 2 people must be booked.
Unfortunately, because of venue unavailability, this tour is only available on Friday, Saturday & Sunday over Winter (until October).
COST:NZ$180.00pp. (Transport, tastings, platters, dessert.)
TOTAL TOUR DURATION: 6 1/2 HOURS (APPROX.)
