Valley Road Vineyard Wine Tour
Tim Herbert is a retired surgeon from Sydney Australia who, with his wife Heidi, purchased a former French farm vineyard after it had been left following the Christchurch earthquakes. Tim decided to establish his own wine label and the Herberts now run both a cellar door operation and accommodation at what they call ‘Valley Road Vineyard’.
Tim loves the surrounding environment, the snow-covered mountains and the volcanic soils producing unique fruit at the vineyard. If you want to escape from your busy, bustling city life, Tim is the person you want to talk to!
