New Zealand is far away from all countries. No wonder this tour is the longest we have on our program. But the general opinion (by those who have done it) is that it could have lasted longer. There is so much to see. On a tour like this, we don’t taste wine every day (drinking is another matter). We mix wine visits and wine tastings with culture, history, sightseeing and nature experiences such as hot springs, geysers, and glaciers. But the focus of the tour is still the wine and some – almost all — of the most famous wine regions are on the programme.
On the North Island we will visit Hawke’s Bay, with its superb syrah wines, and pretty Wairarapa before we take the ferry to the South Island. Here, the first wine region is the famous Marlborough with its vast sauvignon blanc vineyards. The grape is more multifaceted than we think.
Central Otago with its lovely pinot noir wines – and spectacular nature – is of course included. We will travel in a comfortable coach all the way from Auckland to Queenstown. It is quite a trip and we will see a lot of the country.
An unforgettable adventure.
