Scenic Rotorua Gondola Ride with Wine Tasting
Your journey starts by taking a ride in one of our 8 seater Gondola cabins up the side of the dormant volcano Mount Ngongotaha (487 metres above sea level). There is so much to do at the top including taking in the best views of Rotorua. We suggest you allow at least 2-3 hours to enjoy all Skyline Rotorua has to offer.
A first class wine tasting experience featuring wines from around New Zealand’s favourite regions-Marlborough, Central Otago, Hawkes Bay and Martinborough. Take a New Zealand wine journey today with 5 different wines to sample.
What's included :
- Return Gondola Ride & 5 Wine tasting at Volcanic Hills Winery
- Entry/Admission - Skyline Rotorua
What's excluded :
Relax with a glass of wine, something to eat and soak up the view. The tasting room is set up so you can pop in and experience the wines, as well as take a few bottles home if you like. During the tasting Volcanic Hills staff won’t try to tell you what’s going on in your brain while you drink wine. They’ll have a chat about the tasting with you, as they understand that everyone’s relationship with wine is different.
Option 1: Taste all five Volcanic Hills wines (30-45 mins)
Option 2: Choose three wines to taste (15-30 mins)
The Volcanic Hills range includes Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Rosé, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The grapes are sourced from New Zealand's premium wine-growing regions of Marlborough, Central Otago, Martinborough, Gisborne and Hawkes Bay, and crafted onsite in the Winery at the base of Skyline Rotorua.
