From Auckland in the north to Queenstown in the south with wine, food and incredible landscapes in-between | wine tour in New Zealand

New Zealand is a country that is almost everywhere affected by the proximity to the sea. The vineyards are mainly on the east side. In the west, it rains too much. On the east coast, both in Hawke’s Bay on the North Island and Marlborough on the South Island, it is pleasantly warm, sunny and dry. A bit further inland on the South Island we have Central Otago, a breathtakingly beautiful region known for its superb pinot noir. Here, a long and beautiful autumn contributes to the intense aromas in the wines.

On our tour in New Zealand, we visit these wine regions and some more (almost all of them), e.g. Wairarapa on the North Island, which also makes fine pinot noir, but in a fuller style. We visit the big city of Auckland, Wellington, the beautiful capital, and several of the smaller towns, lively Queenstown, not least.

Our bus will take us from Auckland down to Queenstown on the South Island, so we will have plenty of time to enjoy the varied landscape. The three-hour trip by boat from the North Island to the South Island is an experience, maybe there will be dolphins.

We make a detour to the country’s highest mountain, snow-covered Mount Cook. But the wine is the centre-piece, along with the local gastronomy, such as lamb, seafood, salmon and more. Welcome to discover this new wine country. An adventure that you will never forget.
