What To Expect
Leave the bustle of the city and relax on the short drive north through the rolling green hills and past beautiful coastline before arriving at The Honey Center. Here you will find New Zealand's largest display of live bees and a huge range of honeys available for tasting as well as honey mead and fruit-wine. Then visit Ransom Wines and taste their award-winning wines.
Next, head to the nearby Morris & James Pottery at the heart of the Matakana Coast Wine Country. The ideal combination of gourmet and retail therapy, here you will be greeted by a pure visual spectacle of layer upon layer of design and color from matt black to luscious red.
Take your lunch at Mahurangi River Winery with its contemporary New Zealand architecture and wide pastoral views. Tour the winery and barrel room and sample their wine (made only from grapes grown on the property) before taking time to enjoy the local cuisine.
Then, visit Brick Bay Wines and sample their hand crafted wines in the unique Glass House, looking out to an ever-changing exhibition of contemporary sculptures by leading New Zealand artists. The day is rounded off with a stop at Chocolate Brown, where they hand-make outrageously fine chocolates.
