Auckland, New Zealand

  • We had a wonderful dinner at Apero Food & Wine. This small hidden gem serves NZ cuisine and wine in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Reservations are required.

  • If you are in Auckland, then you MUST take the ferry to Waiheke Island for wine tasting. The Fullers Ferry runs several times a day and takes about 45 minutes from Auckland. A full blog post on the best way to get there and my favorite wineries will be coming soon.

  • The Auckland waterfront is the place to see and be seen. Lined with restaurants, shops, and bars, you will not have a moment to be bored. Our favorite spot was Dr. Rudi’s Rooftop Brewing that features an onsite brewery, games, and outside rooftop tables with a beautiful view of the harbor and bustling sidewalks below.
