5 of 5 starsTripAdvisor REVIEW 31 December 2014  ‘ 5-Stars ‘

“So good – I went on a second tour!
Phil is a great wine AND food for guide. Very much enjoyed the tour of vineyards west of Auckland and Phil lead us through some great finds. Then we had a fabulous foodie tour with great hidden stops for the best ice cream I’ve ever eaten followed by honey, chocolates, and of course very interesting wines. Phil is tops in our book – and he was the most responsive of the top tour providers that we contacted as well.”

minime-new”  Join me – on a fun, relaxing – scenic and informative Auckland wine tasting tour.

With 14 years in operation as a one man band, I can guarantee you a unique and memorable experience.

I’m a 4th generation New Zealander, wine writer and published author.  And have lived in Auckland for 39 years.

I am the highly recommended specialist for small, personally guided  boutique wine tours and shore excursions in Auckland New Zealand – with extensive local knowledge and personal contacts throughout Auckland’s three wine regions – Waiheke Island, Kumeu and Matakana.”
