Absolute waste of time driving out there. We showed up for the wine tasting and the 2 ladies who were meant to great us and do the tasting were too busy flustering around and completely ignored us whilst there was no one else to be served apart from ys. We were not impressed and left without any acknowledgement after waiting... More

Called in for lunch and shared a platter and a pizza. This was our third visit and this time the platter felt unremarkable and overpriced. The pizza was better than the platter. Service was excellent and the setting as lovely as ever. Wine was good too!

Have to say I wrote a poor review for Passage Rock in the past, and vowed never to return. However events conspired against me and I ended up at Passage Rock once again. This time we had a lovely lunch (beef cheeks), service was friendly, and what was on the plate matched the description on the menu. So massive change,... More

What you first notice on your arrival is the winery has some quirky sculptures done in grape vines. The large wine glasses are particularly eye catching. We were met by the winemaker and sampled the Rose while overlooking the vines before moving into a side court yard for the rest of our tastings. The Sauvignon Blanc had very tropical notes... More

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.
