Food and wine lovers rejoice as the ultimate dining experience you’ve been waiting for is back for its third year. Winter Wine & Dine makes premium dining easy, and with four participating Waiheke Island wineries, there’s a vino for everyone.
Head to Batch Winery and enjoy seafood risotto with a glass of Thomas Blanc De Gris. Mudbrick, for an antipasto platter and vino of your choosing. Cable Bay, for seafood tortellini with lobster bisque and calvro nero and a glass of Cinders Vineyard Organic Sauvignon Blanc; or Stonyridge for a Gram-worthy platter and a glass of Stonyridge Sryah. Chef’s kiss.
Despite a year of lockdowns and restricted travel in 2020 the number of Kiwis supporting local with Winter Wine & Dine increased by 51% when compared to the previous year, showing that no-fuss travel packages like this are a great way to support domestic tourism.
Mike Horne, Fullers360 CEO noted that the return of Winter Wine & Dine is just one of the many ways Fullers360 continues to support tourism recovery efforts across the Hauraki Gulf.
“We’re proud to be working together with local wineries on Waiheke Island to bring Winter Wine & Dine to life once again. Any way we can work together with local businesses is something we’re fully behind and by removing the fuss of organising travel to, and on the island, we’ve made a great day out on Waiheke Island that much easier.”
Winter Wine & Dine bookings are open now through to October 2021. Bookings are essential and available every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For $112 per person, you receive a return ferry from Auckland, multi-course lunch and glass of wine at a participating winery of your choosing and on-island transport.
