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.

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.

Traditional New Zealand food can range from a classic roast lamb, fish and chips to the Maori hangi (cooked in the ground). The Kiwi food culture has developed into a variety of multi-cultural fusion dishes due to so many different cultural groups who live here. New Zealanders are very passionate about their food, and with the perfect climate and farming culture most food & produce is grown right here. With over 14,000 km's of coastline amazing seafood is always on offer. Many regions of New Zealand specialise in a particular food; be it stone fruit in the Hawke's Bay and Otago, to award-winning beef and lamb in the Waikato region. Where ever you end up dining in New Zealand you will be spoilt for choice of seafood, meat and local fruit & vegetables.

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.
