We visited a few wineries, Passage rock excelled in taste, but more importantly, excelled in knowledge, enthusiasm, happiness, and location. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Awesome vineyard. My wife and I visited on our honeymoon after several recommendations. It was great to try some reserve vintages and we subsequently bought some wine for the cellar. 😊

First, and pick of the wineries on our group tour. Our winery guide/host was excellent, the wine very nice indeed and the other products for purchase were interesting (and could be sampled). Next time I would go straight to this winery, they have a fabulous setting and a restaurant.

Was taken here for lunch and the menu is not large but the setting is lovely. It is a bit of a journey out here to the far side of the island but well worth the effort. When you arrive it is tranquility and staff make you welcome. They used to provide a trampoline for children's use but this is... More

There's plenty of places to go on Waiheke that out-wow Passage Rock. Mud Brick, Tantalus, Church Bay etc. We are residents and we like to take our guests on the out of the way spot at Passage Rock. It's 10 minutes down a bushy country road to get there but well worth it. The dining room has a menu to... More

This was one of my favorite wineries on a tour a few times. Great insightful staff and some of my favorite wine and the extra tastings for $2 a glass is amazing a must on waiheke

We have visited this vineyard/restaurant twice in the last week. First with an elderly group and then with mid teens. The setting of Passage Rock is lovely - you are amongst a vineyard and can enjoy views from most tables. It is beautiful to walk into, but does not have a clear space to stand while waiting to be met... More
