    Our half day wine tour with John was a fantastic experience. John was extremely knowledgeable and fun we went to three wineries and had a beautiful lunch. My wife said it was the best part of her 50th birthday weekend. Can’t wait for my coopers creek reds to arrive.

    Hi Yun, It was a pleasure once again to take you and you lovely wife touring, and nothing makes me happier as an endorsement of NZWINEPRO™ than repeat customers that I'm always happy to see again. This tour is popular because of the lesser traveling time, later departure and reduced tariff. So thanks very much for your great feedback. I make a point of only visiting the best venues. We wont visit wineries that have not proven they are consistent both in wine and/or service, not only in my professional opinion but also in reviews of wineries reflected on TripAdvisor by independent travellers that I keep an eye on. So the relationships I have is a combination of many years of working together and a mutual respect for each others professionalism. I hope you'll like the NZWINEPRO™ Facebook page to stay in touch, or if you follow us on Instagram and Twitter I post interesting photos and articles about the best wines, cuisine and attractions I come across there too - Thanks again for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. All the best - John McFarlane

    This tour was great! Knew what to do when the weather didn’t cooperate (the power was out at certain wineries). Really friendly and informative on even more than just Auckland. Would recommend to everyone!

    Hi Abbigail, What a pleasure it was to spend the day with you and your two friends. The weather was dreadful I agree but fortunately apart from the Muriwai black sand beach we were mostly indoors. Auckland does get a lot of rain from June through to August, but I'm pleased it didn't dampen your spirits or enthusiasm to taste the wines and enjoy the tours inclusions and scenery. I hope you'll like the NZWINEPRO™ Facebook page to stay in touch, or if you follow us on Instagram and Twitter I post interesting photos and articles about the best wines, cuisine and attractions I come across there too - Thanks again for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor.
