You will immerse yourself into the wonderful world of gin. We will guide you through the botanical plants and spices which are used to create gin. We will then invite you to fashion your own two gin creations to sip, sit back and relax with.

For lunch, a glass of bubbles is served before Batch Winery’s signature offering of High Tea offers a taste of New Zealand vintage dishes created with a contemporary twist. Their three tiers of great tastes means you can linger and enjoy the views.

The complimenary Batch Winery shuttle bus will return you to Matiatia Ferry Terminal for a leisurely cruise back across the Hauraki Gulf.
