Auckland, New Zealand-port

Auckland, “The City Of Sails”, is spread over a narrow isthmus between the sparkling waters of the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours on New Zealand’s North Island. It earns its sobriquet from having more boats per capita than any other city in the world. The first settlers here were the Maori, and are still a vibrant component of its cosmopolitan population. Auckland offers the visitor all the amenities of a world-class city. Browse the shops of Queen Street or the Parnell area with its galleries and boutiques in quaintly restored Victorian buildings. For a magnificent panorama of the city travel to Mount Eden, the city’s highest point, or visit the Skytower for loftier views. Minutes from downtown you can relax on a black sand beach, or explore the America’s Cup Yachting Village. Further afield there are the spectacular pine-clad Waitakere Mountains, the amazing Waitomo Glowworm Caves and the verdant vineyards of Kumeu River Wines.

    New Zealand is rapidly emerging as a quality producer of wine, especially its fine Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. Settled by Yugoslavian immigrants early last century, the West Auckland region is considered to be New Zealand's oldest established wine-producing area.

    From the port you'll drive to West Auckland along the Western Motorway.

    Visit Kumeu River Wines, established in 1944. Upon arrival, you'll be met by a member of the Brajkovich family and given a brief history of the vineyard. You'll then be taken on a tour of the winery and shown how the wine is produced. This is followed by a sampling of some of the current vintages, and accompanied by a selection of New Zealand cheeses crackers and biscuits.

    Next visit Bees Online Honey Centre, a contemporary, purpose-built honey experience where you will be given the complete honey experience from petal to palette. A tasting highlight is the fresh fruit platter served with special honey syrup - a formulation of Manuka honey with vanilla and citrus overtones. There will be time to shop in their excellent gift store before departing.

    Then visit Hallertau, which is fast making a name for itself with its excellent range of handcrafted beers, as well as delicious fruit wines. Sample several of their award-winning beers such as their Irish Red Beer and American Pale Ale. Some delicious snacks will accompany the beers.

    You'll then return to Auckland via the scenic upper Waitemata Harbor Road, through Riverhead and Albany and across the Auckland Harbor Bridge.

    Please note: Guests must be at least 21 years of age to participate in tastings of alcoholic beverages.
