The Landing - New ZealandLive Item
Description of the Item:
Kia Ora-Welcome! The Landing Wines invites you to experience a once-in-a-lifetime getaway to Aotearoa New Zealand. First, you and your three guests will arrive in the heart of Auckland, enjoy the very best the city has to offer and stay in a Waitemata view room at New Zealand's first 5 Green Star hotel, The Hotel Britomart. Auckland's glittering Waitemata Harbour has rarely looked better than from the comfort of our Waitemata View rooms at The Hotel Britomart. During your five-night Britomart stay, you'll delight in beautiful timber-lined rooms featuring handmade ceramics, organic cotton sheets, loads of natural light and comfortable built-in sofas in which you can curl up and enjoy the views across the port to the harbour and the slopes of the North Shore beyond. Your party of four will indulge in a private dining experience at the Chef's Table in the hotel's award-winning sustainable seafood restaurant, kingi, before being whisked away by private helicopter to The Landing. The Landing's vineyard stretches across 23 gently-sloped acres overlooking the Bay of Islands, surrounded by restored native forest and wetlands. Native birds, including some of the abundant local population of kiwi, visit the vineyard every day, with the vineyard team's sustainable approach encouraging the local wildlife to flourish. You'll stay for two nights in their sun-drenched waterfront villa, The Boathouse. Designed with an air of simple luxury, The Boathouse captures the spirit of the quintessential New Zealand holiday-lounging in the sun, enjoying good food and wine with friends and family and spending long days in or on the water. Huge, barn-style doors slide back to open the relaxed central living space with its soaring cathedral ceiling up to all-day sun and sea air off the calm waters of Wairoa Bay. At The Boathouse, you and your guests will be treated to breakfast and dinner by The Landing chef and lunch platters or picnic hamper. Your stay will also include the following experiences:
- Wine tasting of The Landing wines
- Guided kiwi-spotting tour
- Tour of the historically significant land and vineyard
- Half-day sightseeing boat tour
This is an unmatched experience. You will long-treasure this incomparable visit to the Land of the Long White Cloud.
