‘Anywhere, anytime...’Award-winning Tasting Tours specialise in customised wine-tasting tours for small groups, and also provide other tours of local and regional attractions. Regular packages include the Local Tasting Tour - seven hours of wine, beer and food – with stops including a tour and tasting at a boutique brewery, a full wine presentation at Morton Estate Winery near Katikati, and then a tasting and lunch at Mills Reef near Bethlehem.
The finale is cocktails and dessert on The Strand back in Tauranga. The Premiere Tasting Experience is a full day tour for the connoisseur, with visits to top wineries, including a specially prepared meal at Mills Reef, with food matched to their premium Elspeth range.
The tour takes in local distillery Deinlein Liqueurs, who were placed second to Cointreau at the International Spirit Awards. Tasting Tours also provide ‘non-alcohol related’ tours to the Coromandel (‘artisan’ food focused!), Waitomo Caves, and Huka Falls jet at Taupo. They also cater to cruise ship passengers, with tours focused on either adventure or arts and culture.
