Although the first vines were planted in New Zealand already in the 19th century, this is an extremely young New World country. The modern wine industry did not develop until the 1970s and at the time the German grape Müller Thurgau still dominated the vineyards. It is hard to imagine today. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir have both been quick to take over. And producers have discovered that over grapes also do thrive, such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer and others.

Our tour of just over two weeks will take us from Auckland on the North Island down to Queensland on the South Island. We go by bus all the way, a great opportunity to see and enjoy as much as possible of nature. We will visit around 20 wine estates but we will also have time for sightseeing.

There will be geysers, kiwi birds, glaciers, picturesque villages, Maori culture and more. We go to New Zealand in March and November 2019. The Mars trip is fully booked. In November, summer is approaching.
