New Zealand, the newest of the New World countries, has some of the world’s southernmost wineries. And also the world’s easternmost vineyard, where the sun rises before all others. No vineyard is further than 120 km from the sea.

The sunny days are long and the nights are cooled by the sea breeze. It is a climate that gives clear and distinct characters in the wines. We can see that very clearly in the sauvignon blanc wines but also in the wines from other grapes varieties.

Our journey through this country far away takes us both to the most important wine regions and to breath-taking experiences of the “Kiwi” natural wonders. We begin in the north where the climate is almost tropical.

We cover all the main wine districts, and will meet many welcoming wine producers along the way. We take the ferry between the North Island and the South Island and if we are lucky we will see dolphins. Even if there are no dolphins, we can guarantee seals sightings just before the lunch break when we enjoy the New Zealand lobster.

A fantastic adventure awaits you.
