Nelson Wine tour

Most Popular Tour

We all know that drinking wine makes you way more awesome, we will have lots of photo opportunities to prove it!!  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. 

2021 Vintage update

  • Due to cold weather in December 2020 the fruit yield was on average 30% lower than previous years but the over all grape quality was excellent.
  • 70% of the 2021 harvest volume in Nelson Tasman was Sauvignon Blanc. An elegant, tropical fruit, fresh herbs and mineral driven expression of this variety.
  • The rising stars in Nelson Tasman are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and our amazingly clean and well balanced aromatics.
