New Zealand came from almost nowhere and became world famous for its Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is still the dominant one New Zealand, but today there is a great variety of other grapes as well. In addition, Sauvignon Blanc is made in many different styles. There are winemakers who experiment with skin contact, or use oak barrels, age on lees or use different kinds of yeasts varieties and other techniques to obtain the best characters in their Sauvignon Blanc wines.
We will taste a lot of different wines during our visits to around 20 different wineries. But we will also have time for some sightseeing. We will see geysers, kiwi birds, glaciers and picturesque villages; get to know the Maori culture. We will see the landscape on our comfortable bus ride from Auckland on the North Island down to Queenstown on the South Island.
Our tours to New Zealand are in March and in November 2019. The March tour is fully booked. Join us in November when summer is just starting.
