What to expect

When you think of wine-tasting trips in New Zealand you imagine scenic drives through Marlborough, Otago, Hawkes Bay, and Nelson. But the good news for those living in the northland is there are some impressive wineries much closer to home than you might realize - some of the best cellar doors are within half an hour from the Auckland CBD. Kiwis are known to be avid winemakers and drinkers and with more than 500 wineries throughout the country, it would be hard to not indulge in our top-quality vino. Visiting one of the many wineries within New Zealand is a must-do and now more than ever would be a great support to our local tourism industry. West Auckland has been at the forefront in developing new wine styles, trailing new grape varieties, and importantly, developing and growing new international markets. Dalmatian history is everywhere in West Auckland. You can see it as you drive. As central Auckland falls away, it gives way to suburbs, then motorways, then the low-lying industry of car yards and forklift hires. Finally, the paddocks and tractors and fruit trees of the countryside, only 25 minutes from town As the landscape changes, so does the language. Viksich, Vitasovich, Yukich, and Fistonich. The history is written directly on to the street signs and the businesses. And then there is wine. Award-winning, experimental, modern, and traditional. It's all here.
