There are several reasons to visit Passage Rock. First, the wine is great, have a tasting and enjoy some of NZ best red wines. Second, it is a lovely place to eat in a rustic setting with a great view of the vines. Thirdly, the pizza is great and the pizza chef is Italian . Yum! The food in general... More

Did this as part of the half day Around Waiheke Tour. Our host was Alex. He did a reserve  tasting with us where we got to sample their coveted Magnus, which apparently doesn't happen often. Delicious. Very upbeat staff. Enjoyed a glass of Sisters and some bread on the patio after the tasting. Great scenery.

We stopped on for a tasting and were so impressed with the tasting and in particular the service from the Young Lady doing our tasting we decided to have lunch. My wife absolutely LOVED the "Reserve Chardonnay"! The Smoked Salmon and Goats Curd Pizza was outstanding! Highly recommend the Winery and the Restaurant.

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.
