NEW ZEALAND WINE TOURS
New Zealand wine is known for its vibrancy and intensity, elements that have arisen from a longer ripening period due to our cooler temperatures. Kiwi winemakers have a discerning palate, which is reflected in the high quality of the country’s vineyards and wineries. Many are located in spectacular locations – nestled in valleys rimmed by alpine peaks, or alongside picturesque shorelines.
Sauvignon Blanc is what first made New Zealand wine famous on the world stage. These days there’s a carefully crafted varietal to suit any palate, from intense, elegant reds to light, balanced whites.
For the wine connoisseurs, Antipodean Luxury Travel will craft an unforgettable experience with one of the country’s top winemakers. At the desired winery, clients will customise their own wine from a single vintage, take part in harvesting the grapes and select the oak barrel to age the wine. Then, enjoy an intensive tasting session to refine the final taste, before naming and designing the label to take home for one’s own private collection.
Or, take a behind the scenes look at the workings of a vineyard and see exactly how wine goes from grape to glass. Meet passionate local winemakers who will escort you through the vineyard and explain growing methods and fermentation processes. Enjoy a private wine tasting and chat to the winemaker with any questions you may have. If there’s a certain vintage that takes your fancy, our team can arrange your favourite wine to be sent home for you.
