A pleasant surprise to be greeted by and enthusiastic wine maker who has been at this location since the beginning of grape plantings in this area. Learn how one enterprise can populate the district. Well worth a visit with the added bonus of some unique wines.

Heron's Flight is a true anomaly with respect to New Zealand wines. A long time specialist in Italian varietals, such as Dolcetto and Montepulciano, Heron's flight takes great pride is producing age worthy wines.

Well worth a visit as the wine is different to which is offered in the region and its one of the first wineries in the region.

We were going to drive into Matakana but the traffic was too heavy - we headed up the hill to Heron's Flight. Mary greeted us and offered a tasting for $5 or $10 and we had the opportunity to sit in her garden. It was such a professional and pleasant tasting I would recommend it to anyone in the area.
