Tour 5: Twin Regions Wine Tour

Book / Enquire Tour »The Twin Regions Wine Tour explores the Waimea Plains region with its alluvial, free draining, gravelled soil, and the softly rolling Moutere Hills where gravel threaded clay, provides a contrasting growing medium for Nelson wines. Each region, with its own unique soil structure, produces some interesting flavour variations in the wine.

The Pinot Noir is deeply flavoured with fine tannins and elegance. The Chardonnay is complex and multi-faceted with excellent structure. Winemakers also produce excellent Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Sampling boutique Nelson wines from four different wineries, this will tempt the most discerning wine lover. Per hectare of vines planted, Nelson consistently wins more awards than the other regions in New Zealand. The region has a great reputation for the aromatic varieties – Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. It also has its own distinctive take on Sauvignon Blanc, some exquisite examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and some superb "stickies". Nelson wines are sold around the world, but you have the chance to experience our wines in the place they were created.
