Rangitoto as viewed from Mudbrick Vineyard, Waiheke Island

There are many wonderful vineyards on Waiheke Island, but a romantic dinner at Mudbrick allows you this beautiful view of Rangitoto, a dormant volcano, at sunset. Book a table in the morning (or even the day before in the busy summer season) before spending the day tasting wine, olive oil and other local produce. You’ll be pleased you did when you enjoy a lovely ending to the day.  All you have to do then is roll down the hill to catch your ferry back to the city.
