Fodor's Review

This winery has grown from a small company founded by the Fistonich family to one of the country's biggest producers, with a wide range of wines using different grapes. It is recognized for its consistency, and George Fistonich, the founder, has done much for the grape industry in New Zealand. The purpose-built Auckland facility is close to the airport, so it's a good place to stop on your last day. The tasting room offers selections from most of the company's vineyards (shipping can be arranged if you decide to buy), and there are two tours a day. Villa Maria also hosts outdoor summer concerts from jazz to classical.
