British movie star spotted at OnTrack Favourite
Ontrack and British movie star Benedict Cumberbatch have one thing in common – we both love the fabulous Mudbrick Vineyard on New Zealand’s Waiheke Island.
Mudbrick is always the spot for lunch when the Ontrack New Zealand Horse and Wine Tour spends the day on the stunning Waiheke Island.
Now it seems Benedict Cumberbatch has been spending time at Mudbrick while he waits out the Covid 19 lockdown in New Zealand.
The Sherlock and Marvel star has spent the coronavirus lockdown in the Hawke's Bay, and according to his rep the star stayed in New Zealand when filming of his Netflix film The Power of the Dog was suspended.
Cumberbatch was spotted at Waiheke Island vineyard, Mudbrick, on March 18.
Staff member Haylee Oliver confirmed to news site Stuff that she had seen the actor but wasn't sure if he had been staying in the vineyard's luxury accommodation.
The Ontrack tour spends a full day on the beautiful Waiheke Island and the Mudbrick luncheon is always one of the highlights on a tour that features plenty of amazing epicurean experiences.
The Ontrack New Zealand Horse and Wine Tour is scheduled for November 19-24 and Ontrack’s Grant Morgan remains confident the 2020 renewal will be a highlight of the year for clients.
“The Covid 19 situation has been difficult to say the least, but there’s plenty of reason to be confident that trans-Tasman travel will be the first international experience offered to Australian tourists.
“Waiheke Island is a stunning place that’s a comfortable boat trip about an hour from down-town Auckland.
“It’s always amazing to show our guests this little piece of South Pacific paradise and the lunch at Mudbrick never fails to blow people away.
“New Zealand is always an amazing tourism experience and we’re looking forward to November and the chance to showcase some fantastic breeding farms, incredible scenery and beautiful food and wine,” said Grant Morgan.
“Who knows we might run into Benedict come November.”
