New Zealand Wine Tour

Welcome to New Zealand and Akaroa, and what could be better than being introduced to the tantalizing wines of this country. Spend some time exploring Akaroa Harbor, then visit local award-winning vineyards in New Zealand's only French settlement.

Your tour will take you to 2 prominent wineries, where you will discover how the geology of the area contributes to the flavor of Akaroa's unique wines. The scenic beauty of this area is breath-taking. Learn the history of the original French settlers and how they planted their first vines in this unique terroir, creating today the distinctive flavors of these New Zealand wines known all over the world.

Enjoy wine tastings at every stop that are perfectly paired with delicious local cheeses. A third stop is made for a tasting next to the water in a lovely outdoor setting, very rustic and one-with-nature. If you are a wine connoisseur, then this tour is a must-do while you are in the area.

We found this an excellent small group (6 people) tour. The guide gave great information on the history of Akaroa and surrounds as well as wine information. The two wineries we visited were boutique and not ones we were familiar with. Both interesting tastings. Again good information given plus absolutely delicious n ibbles of local food to go with the wine. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.

One of the best tours we have ever done

Our tour guide was the best you could ever ask for. She was very friendly and share she vineyard with us. we samples at least six different wines along with cheeses and meats to go with them. She then took us to another vineyard (one of her good friends) where we repeated the whole wine tasting again. Our tour guide went way way beyond what was advertised for this tour. Thank You, Thank You for some great memories and great wines
