New Zealand, the Ocean, the Mountains, the Sun — plus wine & gastronomy | wine tour

Share/like this post:

In New Zealand, people like to dress according to the layer-on-layer principle. The weather can change quickly and unexpectedly in this country, which is influenced almost everywhere by the sea and the mountains.

Our wine tour to New Zealand is in March. This is early autumn; the harvest has started, and the weather is often beautiful and sunny with late summer temperatures.

The wine is our focus on this tour, but we will have the chance to see many other things while our bus takes us through the country, from Auckland down to Queenstown. We will get to know the Māori culture, take a boat on a glacier lake, and watch geysers and other geothermal phenomena. We will taste green mussels – a speciality – and local crayfish.

There will be a great many wines to try and taste; a lot of pinot noir and sauvignon blanc but not only. We will stay in Auckland, Taupo, Napier in Hawkes Bay, Martinborough, Blenheim in Marlborough, Christchurch, Mount Cook and Queenstown in Central Otago during this wine tour.

Join us for a great wine, nature and culture experience on the New Zealand wine tour.

Book now!

The tour will be back in 2025 on March 11-26.
