As you can see the Waiheke Winter Blues have well and truly set in. Don’t tell those folks flying to far off lands for the eternal summer. We have seasons for a reason. The lemon trees are laden with delicious fruit and throw in some beautiful Waiheke honey and some hot rain water and you have yourself the ultimate happy drink. Nature is very sweet, providing us with all we need. The tradies are wearing T-shirts and shorts and it is mid July. You can’t do that mid winter in Chicago no matter how long your beard is. It is just cold enough here to make the mosquitos buggar off for a few months so ideal really. I urge you to come over and make Waiheke your happy place if it is not already. Treat your taste buds and your soul. The Waiheke reset button is here for you 12 months a year. Waivino does it darndest to enhance that experience with our hand crafted wine and gourmet food tours. Cheers!
