"We had a wonderful day visiting fantastic vineyards with Joe Waide. He was the perfect guide, knowledgeable about the area and fun. It was wonderful to hear local legends and find out how they related to the wine we were tasting. The tour also included a delicious platter of local cheese and produce at one of our stops. It was a privilege to be given two Haka after we had visited our last tasting spot. Joe's Maori heritage made this wine tour a unique experience." — Michelle, Manchester, UK
