Day 1: Waiheke Island (Auckland)
VIP Wine Tour

 The Langham

(B,D)


We start the day boarding our ferry to Waiheke Island. First stop Jurrasic Ridge in Oneroa. All wines are hand crafted by owner Lance Blumhardt. We enjoy a relaxed tasting with owner Lance Blumhardt followed by a tour around his north facing vineyard which specialises in Syrah, Montepulciano and Pinot Gris. Lunch will be at Mudbrick Restaurant. In my humble opinion Mudbrick Vineyards has one of the most stunning views of any vineyard in the world. Whilst dining we will enjoy sweeping views over the vineyards and out to sea with Rangitoto Island in the distance. This afternoon we pay a visit to Man O` War where an exceptional and passionate team of people come together to bring you unique world class wines that reflect the distinctive treasure of land from which they come. Their Flagship Black Label Range of Gravestone Sauvignon Semillon, Valhalla Chardonnay, Dreadnought Syrah and Ironclad Bordeaux Blend convey layers of complexity, structure and ageing potential. Each we have lovingly named to reflect their history and exceptional sense of place. Last stop Passage Rock. Passage Rock Wines was established in 1994 by David and Veronika Evans-Gander. This boutique winery is set apart by its location and its focus on Syrah. David and Veronika's aim is to work harmoniously with the seasons the sites and the people involved in their operation to produce ripe, full bodied red wines made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah grapes. During our time on Waiheke we will also find time to visit some of the craft and art shops that abound on the island. The evening is yours

Day 2: Auckland 
Sail and Dine


(B)
Today we have the morning to explore the city of Auckland. Enjoy shopping in New Market or cross the bridge and explore the beaches of the North Shore. The rest of the day will be relaxed with the option of either walking on Rangitoto Island or taking a ride on an Americas Cup Yacht or perhaps enjoy a round of Golf at Auckland’s Gulf Harbour. This evening dine at Clooney is without doubt one of my favourite restaurants in New Zealand. The vision of Tony Stewart Maître d’ has made Clooney one of the most relaxed and ambient restaurants in New Zealand. Chef Desmond Harris compliments this by producing meals that satisfy all who eat his cuisine.


Day 3: Downtown Auckland 
VIP Foodie Tour


(B,D)
Just on the edge of downtown Auckland is a little slice of France, and what better way to start the morning than a behind-the-scenes visit to prepare our own croissants? The perfect cup of coffee awaits us at our next stop to visit one of New Zealand's premier coffee roasters. No foodie visit to Auckland would be complete without admiring the fresh seafood on offer at the Auckland Fish Market. The deli at the Market gives us the opportunity to check out some other specialty foods. Our morning foodie exploration will finish with a delicious lunch." The afternoon is yours This evening we dine at the Foodstore At the tender age of 19, and with no formal training, Head Chef Wylie Dean was so talented that he found himself as head chef of one of New Zealand's best restaurants. Taking off on a culinary journey, he landed in L.A. and quickly became chef to the stars. Then, wanting to break out on his own, he headed to Melbourne. After opening numerous restaurants there, he has now decided to return home to lead the new wave in Kiwi cuisine at The Foodstore.
