Wine, Brews and Views Tour
Book Online » Nelson wins more wine awards per hectare than any other region in NZ and is New Zealand's only hop growing area. We travel through the beautiful grape growing, hop growing, berry growing and orchard areas, to visit the tasting locations.
We visit two award winning wineries for wine tasting then a scenic drive to NZ's Oldest Pub (built in 1850 by early German settler Cordt Bensemann) in the rural Hop growing region of Nelson. There you can enjoy a tray of local craft brews and ciders OR if you prefer, a glass of beautiful Moutere wine grown in the Moutere clays. If time allows we will add a visit to the wonderful - The Junction Cheese Store on the way home. Wine Brews and definitely a lot of Views!
Did you know that Nelson is home to more craft brewers per head than anywhere else in NZ?
There is a stop along the way at historic Port Mapua (previously an important export shipping port for the Nelson apple crop) where you can enjoy a bite to eat or simply wander the boutique shops and galleries on the wharf?
Please note that lunch is at your own cost. (TIP: the NZ Ice Cream at Hamish's Café is superb!). It is a fun day out with friendly informative guides. We hope you can join us!
