New Zealand is a new wine country. Admittedly, wine was made as early as the 19th century, but the wine industry did not gain momentum until the 1980s. After that, it has grown at an incredible pace. Much thanks to one single grape variety, sauvignon blanc. This variety accounts for 85% of exports, so it is the grape that most people associate with New Zealand.
Being in the country, you will discover that there is so much more. The conditions for viticulture are in many ways perfect. It is the coolest of the New World countries, but there is plenty of sunshine and, most of the time, just enough rainfall.
The differences between the South Island and the North Island are significant. We will get to know both islands, from Auckland in the north to Queenstown in the south. We will be riding in our comfortable bus between these two cities, and we, therefore, see a lot of the country and the spectacular scenery.
We visit about 20 wineries, some large, some very small. But all make exciting wines.
The tour to New Zealand is a memory for life.
