My wife and I had a wine tasting after lunch and found it to be well worthwhile. The wide range of wines they offered and large pours made it a fun afternoon. We ended up getting a couple of bottles of reserve Chardonnay and Syrah. Lovely staff and great place.

We had two hours to kill before heading to airport and a friend recommended Villa Maria. What a great setting right near airport. Totally unexpected as you are in an industrial area. Meal was fantastic... wine exceptional and service fast and super efficient. Highly recommend this spot.

We are from England and heard a lot about Villa Maria, and seeing we were staying with friends from Manly it only seemed a great opportunity to do a wine tasting and have lunch. The wine tasting was ok but felt it could have been better.. 4 of us paid then started tasting and then other people just joined in... More

Our second visit to the winery and we be back again. Wonderful location and beautiful food. We had Roast Cauliflower and potato soup followed by the Vineyard platter and a glass of VM Pinot Noir. Great way to end our trip to New Zealand before heading for the airport. A classy restaurant.

A good way to use up time if you are stuck waiting at an airport hotel for a late night flight. A pleasant walk. Wines were so-so and our service was certainly average at best. A lovely setting considering the proximity to AKL airport.

Toured Villa Maria as a major component of NZ Winepro tour (that tour gets 5 stars). The winery is huge and the wines produced (except the high end organic varieties) are average. The tour was well done - but no different than a tour of any other huge winery with two story stainless steel tanks and row upon row of... More

We were stopping overnight at Jet Park Hotel near the airport to catch an early flight and decided rather than may a trip into Auckland (which we've seen a few times), we'd stretch our legs and walk to Villa Maria Winery. Wineries are always pleasant places to spend an afternoon, but Villa Maria exceeded our expectations, largely due to the... More

I've always thought that Villa Maria's Auckland location was a hidden gem of a winery + eatery + event venue. Located a few kilometers from the busy AKL airport, it's a truly relaxing spot to sit out overlooking the vines. The wine tasting at the cellar door for $5 is worth the experience. My recent lunch however, was not up... More
