Only a 40-minute ferry ride away from Auckland is where you will find Waiheke Island. This island is ranked by Lonely Planet as the 5th best destination in the world. It is home to fantastic vineyards and beaches that you can explore on foot, by bicycle, bus or car.
As I was visiting friends in Auckland, we decided to spend a sunny Sunday on this beautiful island and try out some delicious wines from New Zealand. If you arrive on the island you can get information about the bus schedules and all the different wineries that you can find on the island. It will describe exactly what kind of wines you can get at which winery and where they are located.
Here is a photo impression and some information about the three vineyards that I visited.
