Nelson is New Zealand’s fourth largest grape growing region and famous for it’s aromatic verieties – for example; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris or if you like your reds we do fantastic styles of Montepulciano, Syrah and Pinot Noir one of the South Island most famous reds. If you like your dessert wines Nelson also produces some of the best in the country.
We all know that drinking wine makes you way more awesome, we will have lots of photo opportunities to prove it. Why not impress your friends and family back home with your new found understanding and appreciation of Kiwi wine.
Nelson consistently wins more awards than any other region in New Zealand per hector of vines planted. Experience the wines in the place where they are created and taste the difference between wines created on the stony sunny soils of the Waimea Plains and the gravel-threaded clay soils of the rolling hills of Moutere.
