Starting from $299 USD / Adult
Take a scenic drive through the Waimea Plain, the region's many orchards and up into the rolling Moutere Hills as you make your way to the coast where many wineries have benefitted from the maritime climate. Indeed, the Nelson region is home to many family-owned and operated wineries who've developed award-winning wines in a number of varietals including Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay and-more recently-Gruner Vetliner, Albariño, and Sauvignon Gris. During this exploration of the region, you'll have the opportunity to visit some of these acclaimed wineries, taste local produce and visit a boutique artisan cheese store, before visiting the award-winning Forsters restaurant, set amidst the Moutere Hills vineyard, where you'll enjoy a sit-down lunch prepared by applauded chef, Alistair Forster, along with a glass of wine.
