Saint Germaine said, “Wine symbolizes the alchemical marriage betwix Heaven and Earth.”
Waiheke Island is as close to heaven as you’ll ever find, its unique soils and micro-climate favouring the grape like nowhere else.
Destiny Bay Vineyards is a tiny, quintessential corner of Waiheke Island, gently contoured like an ancient amphitheatre, sheltering vines of impeccable lineage, where the alchemy of winemaking combines old world traditions, new world techniques, and a timeless passion for excellence.
