Choose your tasting selection from Private Bin Wines, Cellar Selection or Premium reserve and Single Vineyard tastings - these range between $10pp - $25pp.

In the afternoon we visit Soljans estate established in 1937. Soljans produce estate Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinotage.

Coopers Creek and West Brook have a wide range of award winning wines, including some lesser known varietals like Arneis and Montepulciano - Tasting Fees $10pp.

The Hunting Lodge is a great place to chill, taste some wine or order a wood fired Pizza. Four of their wines are served in a wooden tasting paddle - Tasting Fees $15pp.

You can be delivered with your luggage to Auckland Domestic or International Airport at the conclusion of the tour for an additional NZ$50 per booking.

Perfect insight to New Zealand wines

Hi. This was simply a great tour from John and Barbara. We have done a number of NZ wine tours and there insight to the history of New Zealand wines made this the very best! The format is also excellent - you can pick your own wine choices if you prefer over the vineyards choices, and four great venues mean those choices are extensive. You will genuinely not be disappointed, and certainly pleasantly educated!
