Our tour to New Zealand is not “just” a wine tour. It is also a journey where we get to know the country, the culture, the food and nature. The tour starts with a couple of days in the country’s largest city, but not the capital, Auckland.
Here we take the opportunity to visit Waiheke Island, known for its Bordeaux blends. Our bus then takes us south through the North Island and wine regions such as Hawkes Bay and Wairarapa.
We take the ferry across to the South Island (maybe a dolphin sighting if we’re lucky) and we continue in our comfortable bus to Marlborough, the world’s biggest sauvignon blanc producer, and Central Otago, famous for its delicious pinot noirs. We make a detour to the glaciers around the magnificent Mount Cook, the country’s highest mountain.
We will get to know the wines (and discover that the country has much more to offer than just sauvignon), and we will visit a large number of wine producers. All in all, we will make around 20 wine visits. But with plenty of time for other things too. The tour ends in Queenstown, a lively city in a spectacularly beautiful location.
Join us on our New Zealand tour, a great adventure.
