Wine Tasting On Waiheke

IMG_8573A beautiful Monday spent wine tasting on Waiheke Island..

On our way! (My new haircut, courtesy of the Wella Trend Vision Show I did on the weekend, will have photo’s soon I hope!)

After spending the last two very long days prepping for the Wella Trend Vision Show, taking some time out on Monday was exactly what I needed. If you have never done a wine tasting tour before, then you need to get onto it! It’s the perfect way to find out which wineries you like, meet some new people and you can learn a thing or two along the way. We did find the tour was a little rushed though. Apart from our lunch at Stoneyridge we only had around 30 minutes per winery and we really needed longer to soak up the atmosphere.

We visited three wineries and a olive estate throughout the day. My favourite was hands down the last winery we went too, the Mudbrick Vineyard, where we actually ended up staying afterwards. Finishing the day off with food and wine andΒ an amazing view. If I had to recommend one to visit, it would definitely be the Mudbrick. We ordered the platter for two because we weren’t overly hungry, turns out the platter they bought out was huge, but of course we managed to eat it all! We were allΒ really impressed with our platter and of course our wine, (which was the Pinot Gris by the way)

Every Monday should be spent like this….
