Tour overview:

Wine in the Wilderness is a fascinating day journey that highlights and showcases the very reasons I love this region.

On collection from your accommodation in a luxury Mercedes this scenic journey starts immediately as we travel through this renowned wine region,exploring the elements of terroir and the personalities and philosophies of the locals.

On to the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach to board your own personal water taxi to be transported to a stunning yet remote golden sand bay in Abel Tasman National Park for a gourmet lunch of fine, fresh local products.

After lunch your hosts guide you on a short walk into the park and will delight you with historic tales and interesting stories of the diverse collection of native plants and their uses. From easily accessible vantage points marvel at the stunning emerald water colours as tide moves over the rich golden sands. Hidden estuaries surrounded by bush and bay after golden bay may be revealed to highlight the true essence of New Zealand’s most popular coastal national park.

Returning to the beach it becomes real relaxation time to taste the very best of local wine varieties matched with the finest local produce that may include hot smoked salmon, mussels, venison, cheese or scallops. The hardest part is leaving this idyllic place to be returned to your accommodation.

"Bob and I had an exceptional day of sights, food and wine!”
