Guided Tastings

At Nga Waka we want to share our knowledge and passion for wine with you. Our guided tasting experience will showcase our flagship wines from current releases, alongside rare gems from past vintages. Allow between 40 to 60 minutes (depending on group size) for a relaxed but informative tasting exploring our story across seven vineyard sites in our private tasting room overlooking our Home Block Vineyard.

Bookings are essential. You can book and pay for your session using the link below.
