Heletranz is taking the quintessential summer long lunch to new heights

Considering that summer lends itself to long, luxurious lunches, it follows that Waiheke Island is one of the most popular spots of the season. And as far as its vast and varied vineyard offering goes, it doesn’t get much better than the elegant restaurant and craft brewery at Tantalus Estate. 

Seeking to elevate the experience of heading over to Tantalus for a meal with friends, Heletranz is offering a unique heli-dining experience that will not only see you alighting on the lawn right outside the winery’s main dining room, but will also include a glass of Tantalus’ Methode Traditionelle sparkling wine on arrival and a delicious four-course à la carte lunch. 

Departing from the Heletranz heliport in Albany, Mechanics Bay or your own front lawn and returning via helicopter or ferry (you decide), the breathtaking flight to Waiheke is just the beginning of what will certainly be a wonderful day.
