Volcanic Hills Winery, Rotorua

4.7
#1 of 193 in Wineries in New Zealand
Ride to the top of the Rotorua Skyline gondola and sample the delicious wines of Volcanic Hills Winery, where the mountainside tasting room offers panoramic views of Lake Rotorua and distant peaks. Participate in a wine tasting, led by the winery's friendly and informative owners, or just sit back with a glass of wine, nibble at a cheese board, and take in the scenery. Before heading up, consider stopping by the winery itself (at the base of the gondola), to see how a truckload of grapes turns into a bottle of fine wine. To plan Rotorua vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • A great way to spend a couple of hours - a great view, fine wine and a matching cheese and fruit platter. Thanks for the hospitality Johnny and Sarah!
  • It was a beautiful day at the tasting room. The tasting was intimate and informative. Annie told us about the history of New Zealand and explained the types of wine we tasted. If you just want a taste with no explanation, this is not the place. You can’t beat the views, the decor or the company. It was beautiful! Thank you Annie!!
