Bucks Wine Experiences

Destination: TAURANGA

8 min
3+ Hrs

The Bucks Party was once a heavy booze drinking session undertaken by the groom and his mates to improve his chances of having a boy on his wedding night. While you may not have a month to party, and you probably don’t prescribe to that ancient wife’s tale, that’s no excuse to skip the celebratory drinks. Wicked Bucks has lined up the best of the best wineries in the Tauranga region, and we’re going to help you hop your way between them all. 

Ah, it’s the simple things in life. With the big day approaching, your soon-to-be-groom is probably reminiscing on all the good times, chuckling over his young and naive days and wondering about his impending days of retirement. Like all Hollywood blockbusters would suggest, there are only two real ways to ponder life: 1. By stroking your beard, or 2. With a glass of wine in hand. We can’t help you grow out the pesky hairs on your chin, which is why we’ve opted for the latter.

A Wicked Bucks Winery Tour is for those who appreciate quality wine and gourmet food or just anyone that wants to drink a lot of wine and eat a lot of food.

Collected by your private charter bus from the doorstep of your hotel and escorted to the first vino venue in style, you’ll be greeted by a team of expert wine drinkers (It’s a reputation we all wish we could earn). These guys don’t just know the art of swirling a glass of red, they’re the ones producing and fine tweaking all our favourite drops.

As you walk through the vineyards, you’ll take away the ability to discuss the impacts of climate on agriculture (a great conversation for the watercooler at work), an understanding of the nuanced difference between different varieties of grape (incredible to look like you’re a sophisticated dude when you’re ordering for a lady at the bar) and an understanding of the complex art of tasting (Effective for impressing your in-laws). Oh, and you get to drink a bucket load of wine too.

When all of that comes to an end, you get to do it all over again at the next winery! In between stops you can pump the tunes on the bus and show off all the dance moves that you’ll be pulling out at the club later that night. It’s the perfect addition to any bucks party and a bloody good way to try to convince yourself that you’re slowly becoming actual adults.
