  • New Zealand Wine Taster Tour

    New Zealand Wine Taster Tour

    The 8-night Wine Taster Tour is an ideal introduction to the main wine regions of New Zealand – perfect for combining with another tour or expanding in its own right.

    HAWKE'S BAY - MARTINBOROUGH - NELSON - BLENHEIM

    Day One: To Hawke’s Bay
    From Auckland or elsewhere in New Zealand arrive at Napier and the Hawke’s Bay wine producing area. Collect your hire-car.

    Days Two and Three: Hawke's Bay
    Explore the wineries of this traditionally dry and sunny region, famous for its chardonnay but also producing cabernet sauvignon. Some of the most established in the region include Mission Estate and Te Mata Estate and have been joined by more recent ventures including Sileni Estates (also with a good restaurant, wine education centre and shop), CJ Pask winery, Black Barn and Craggy Range. Many offer visits and tastings and some have excellent restaurants. Perhaps also try to visit Clearview Estate, a vineyard on the coast that produces small quantities of hand-made wines.

    Day Four: To Martinborough
    Drive through the rolling farming country southwards to the Wairarapa region and the pretty town of Martinborough.

    Day Five: Martinborough
    The beauty of the day here is that most of Martinborough’s 20 or so excellent wineries are within walking distance of the town centre. Pinot noir is the grape here and whilst this is one of New Zealand’s newest wine producing areas, the quality of the wine from this area is superb.

    Day Six: To Blenheim
    An easy drive into Wellington and then make the short flight of about 30 minutes over to Blenheim. Collect your new hire-car in Blenheim.

    Day Seven and Eight: Blenheim
    Spend two days at the vastly important Marlborough wine region amid the dry country of the Wairau valley around Blenheim. Vineyards stretch for miles with today easily recognisable names such as Montana, Hunter’s, Cloudy Bay and Stoneleigh. There are in fact about 50 wineries in this area, many of them producing the sauvignon blanc associated with the region but also chardonnay, riesling, pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon. Sparkling wines are also produced here with Le Brun specialising in méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines. The Montana Brancott Visitor Centre covers all aspects of wine production.

    Day Nine: To Christchurch A full day’s drive today, allowing time for a lunch stop in Kaikoura. The scenery is breathtaking here as snow-clad mountains seem to rise straight up from the sea across the bay. This is quite a spectacle as you see seals basking in front of you on the beach, the waters of the Pacific gleaming in the sun and the snowy mountain peaks forming a backdrop to the vista. Continue south, skirting the Waipara wine country and enter the flat farmland of the fertile Canterbury Plains before reaching Christchurch.
