NZWINEPRO - Number 1 ranked wine and food tour in Auckland by TripAdvisor

17 March 2017

It's been an incredible summer and I'm pleased to have retained the title of Number 1 Wine and Food Tour (and the number 2 tour in the whole of Auckland) by TripAdvisor throughout. Most of the clients I get seem to often mention how much history and cultural and economic information they receive on a tour and are surprised to find the depth of wine knowledge imbibed upon them. With a background in the wine industry and decades of Hotel, hospitality and tourism behind that it's not surprising. There are a number of wine tour companies operating where the owner/guides actually have a scant knowledge of what they talking about because none of them has ever actually worked in any position in the wine industry at all. At best you're getting a driver and anyone can do that. That's why when you go to the biggest and most prestigious wine Estate in Auckland like Villa Maria Estate the only Wine Tour brochure you'll see permitted there there is NZWINEPRO. It's the same at Kumeu River Wines, the famous Brajkovich family winery. These companies are very selective about who they endorse and who they are prepared to be represented by and that's why we get private behind the scenes access to barrel rooms and production areas. So I'd like to thank all the reviewers that took the time too share their experience and have kept NZWINEPRO as the Number 1 Wine Tour in Auckland. I genuinely believe we deserve it!! John
