Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The ar­ti­san wine­grow­ers of Wai­heke Is­land are hold­ing a nine-day Vin­tage fes­ti­val from March 29 to April 6, timed to give vis­i­tors as many op­tions as pos­si­ble. There will be events at 17 vineyards rang­ing from grape pick­ing and crush­ing, to food and wine match­ing lunches, tech­ni­cal wine mak­ing tours, opera and jazz con­certs and ce­ramic and sculp­ture ex­hi­bi­tions. At Pas­sage Rock you can pick your own grapes, crush them and bot­tle them. At Ob­sid­ian you can take part in a 10-year ver­ti­cal bordeaux blend wine tast­ing. Buses will run be­tween the vineyards. Pay $42.50 for your ferry and all day bus pass. See wai­hekev­in­tage­fes­ti­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
