New Zealand Wine Tours

New Zealand wines are gaining a worldwide reputation for quality, and there’s no better way to explore them than through a tasty journey through the countryside on a New Zealand wine tour. You not only get to taste wines that often aren’t available elsewhere, but you taste them surrounded by the terroir that produced them.

The country’s unique combination of soil, climate, and water lead to wines with their own special character. New Zealand’s internationally acclaimed varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and the Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blends).

But with over 120 wineries spread among New Zealand’s four signature wine regions – Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough and Central Otago – it can be tough to choose which wineries to visit.

The best way to experience the best New Zealand wines – and the vineyards and wineries that proudly craft them – is to hire a New Zealand wine touring guide to show you the way. As wine enthusiasts themselves, they’ll be able to provide insight into the regional styles, and even introduce you to local vineyard owners and winemakers – who are often their friends and neighbors.

Most guides will also arrange a meal for you (paired with wine, of course!). And since your guide is also doing the driving, it leaves you free to fully enjoy the scenery – and the wines you’re tasting!

Your wine touring guide will be happy to customize your tour based on your preferences, and will be able to share their own suggestions for wineries to explore. From tours of the vineyards and wineries to wine samples and even barrel tastings, your wine touring guide will help you get a real taste of a region’s unique wines – and the people behind them. You’ll enjoy care-free, behind-the-scenes access to all the best locales that only a wine touring guide can provide.
