Nelson is well known for its award winning local wines and Craft Beer. It is New Zealand's only hop growing area and we travel through the beautiful grape growing, hop growing, berry growing and orchard areas, to visit the tasting locations. We visit two award winning wineries for wine tasting then a scenic drive to NZ's Oldest Pub (built in 1850 by early German settler Cordt Bensemann) in the rural Hop growing region of Nelson. There you can enjoy a tray of local craft brews and ciders OR if you prefer, a glass of beautiful Moutere wine grown in the Moutere clays. We will also visit at least one other boutique brewery / cidery or add another wine stop on the way home. There is a stop along the way at historic Port Mapua, where you can enjoy a bite to eat (lunch at own cost) or simply wander the boutique shops and galleries on the wharf.
