The afternoon “Russell Wine Tour” visits cellar doors of two of Northland’s vineyards, one at each end of the tour, allowing you to taste their award-winning wines and experience the Bay of Islands while being driven through our fabulous countryside, farmland and historic settlements.
Both wineries have spectacular Bay of Islands views to accompany the wines to try.
The price of the tour includes all wine tastings at the cellar doors and there is plenty of room in the back of the vehicle for any extra purchases, bottled or not, that you make along the way. Because of the seasonality of the wineries in the area this tour is not offered during the winter.
The Jeeps or Toyota 4X4 can cater for up to four passengers each, and if both of our guides are available, we can cater for groups of up to eight. Simply book two tours and you can swap between vehicles on the day if you want.
We pickup from the Russell Wharf in Cass Street, or if preferred, from your local accommodation in Russell. Request location at time of booking.
Food option – Add a winery meal at Omata Estate vineyard. Here you will be treated to a wine-tasting and a wood fired pizza of your choice, both included in the food option price. Additional food, alcoholic beverages and wine purchases will be at your cost.
