New Zealand Wine Tours

New Zealand is famous for it's production of fine wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc which wine critic's say is the best in the world.

Enjoy a guided wine tour with local guides who can take you to the best and most popular wine regions in New Zealand. On most tours, guests can enjoy a vineyard lunch and wine tastings at the cellar door. Tour guides share their local knowledge and will customise tours to suit your individual preferences.

New Zealand Wine Regions

The wine regions in New Zealand stretch from latitudes 36°S in the north (Northland) (comparable in latitude to Jerez, Spain), to 45°S (Central Otago) in the south (comparable in latitude to Bordeaux, France). The climate in New Zealand is maritime, meaning that the sea moderates the weather producing cooler summers and milder winters than would be expected at similar latitudes in Europe and North America. Maritime climates tend also to demonstrate higher variability with cold snaps possible at any time of the year and warm periods even in the depth of winter. The climate is typically wetter, but wine regions have developed in rain shadows and in the east, on the opposite coast from the prevailing moisture-laden wind. The wine regions of New Zealand tend to experience cool nights even in the hottest of summers. The effect of consistently cool nights is to produce fruit which is nearly always high in acidity.
