Great Tastes of Matakana

Let award-winning tour company, Bush and Beach, take you on a food and wine tour to Matakana. With wine tasting, great local food and 21st century art and architecture this Matakana day tour is an enjoyable and relaxed day out.

Leave the bustle of the city and relax on the 45minute drive north through the rolling green hills before arriving at The Honey Centre. Here you find New Zealand’s largest display of live bees and a huge range of honeys available for tasting as well a range of honey mead and other honey based products for sale.

Then we visit a beautifully designed local vineyard with a for a wine tasting of their award winning wines.

Next we visit Brick Bay Winery for a wine tasting and sculpture trail walk. Sensitively sited along an easy walking trail, around 45 carefully chosen sculptures are given room to breathe in a beautiful natural environment.

On your return to Brick Bay’s Glass House you will sample their hand crafted wines followed by a delicious lunch made from many locally-sourced ingredients as you reflect on your experience of ’art and wine entwined’ at Brick Bay.

The day is rounded off with a hot drink and chocolate tasting at Chocolate Brown, where they hand-make outrageously fine chocolates. This is a wine tour with a difference!
