Winery Tours

Explore Nelson Wineries

with your experienced guide and driver

Enjoy the luxury of having your own driver and guide to explore a variety of Nelson Wineries, from the Riwaka, through the Moutere Hills to the Waimea Plains. And no worries about being just above the legal alcohol limit for driving! 

We will visit 3-4 different wineries. At one winery we will have the opportunity to order a light or gourmet lunch while tasting wine. As we travel along the Waimea Plains and into the Hills of Upper Moutere you have the opportunity to see the best of Tasman's outstanding scenery. The tour is about 4 to 5 hours. Pick up is either from Nelson area or Motueka area. 

A lot of sunshine, river stones from riverbeds, good soil with clay and creativity: This is Tasman's and Nelson's secret mix for creating unique artisan wines. The region's reputation says it produces some of New Zealand best Chardonnay and aromatics. Learn from our guides at this Winery Tour about the regions Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and other varieties. Tasman area wines are sold around the world. Boutique family-owned wineries craft exquisite wines from the hills to the plains.

I love nature, good food & wine and the company of friends. Most of my career I worked in the international wine business traveling around the world but also had some stints in the high-end hospitality sector. I always loved showing my customers vineyards and wineries all over Europe, as well as culture, art, and nature. Now I'm enjoying my semi-retired life in Tasman with gardening, golfing, horse riding and tramping in the mountains. I have joined the team of Tasmantours and am proud to show you our National Parks, local wineries, breweries and art galleries and will provide you with information on the local history within the area.
