Our Waiheke Vineyard

Passage Rock Wines was established in 1993 on the Eastern end of Waiheke Island in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand. We produce over 14 varietals and have won awards across the globe for these. Our pride is crafting  wines of distinction, recognizing the strengths of each site and micro-climate to produce the best wine for the season from each grape variety.

Cellar Door

Our Cellar Door is unique as we have our whole portfolio of finest wines open for you to sample. You get to select the varietals that you desire with the tutelage of our knowledgeable Cellar staff guiding you. You can choose to linger over a platter to complement your selection and creat a degustation journey.  Our winemaker and owner is often on-site to further extend your first-hand knowledge and experience.


Surrounded by our Syrah vines, our beautiful café is the perfect setting to come and relax. You’ll enjoy stunning views and award-winning wines which have been skillfully matched with each dish, or you can select your own wines to share.
