The vineyards of Nelson are boutique and family owned and set amongst exceptional scenic countryside often with a foreground of rich horticultural land or inviting coastline and a backdrop of mountains.
The vineyards of Nelson are set amongst exceptional scenic countryside often with a foreground of either rich horticultural land, or ever changing tidal estuaries, and a background of mountains from Mount Richmond Forest Park or Kahurangi National Park.
All wineries and vineyards are family owned, driven by passion and enthusiasm that allows their cultural influence to show through in the consistently high quality wines of world class, limited only by their boutique size.
They create hand-made wines, taking risks with wild fermentations, unproven grape varieties and new styles of wine.
Each vineyard or winery visited has been chosen for its stunning locality and unique romantic story.
A different theme is presented at each visit and may include Wine Appreciation, interacting with the wine maker, walking among the vines or perhaps enjoying tank and barrel samples.*
Food & wine matching is always a highlight along with tasting other local gourmet foods.
