Full Day Wine and Scenic Tour of the Nelson Wine Region. Visit spectacular Nelson wineries on the Waimea Plains and the Moutere Hills. Both regions have a great reputation for the aromatic varieties, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer, and their own distinctive take on Sauvignon Blanc, some exquisite examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
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. We will also visit at least one other boutique brewery / cidery or add another wine stop on the way home. Wine Brews and definitely a lot of Views!
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.
This tour is approximately 5 hours, including pick-up and drop-off from your Nelson accommodation. First pick up time is 11.00am. All wine and beer tasting costs are included in the booking.
