A Tour of the North and South Islands

For wine lovers, New Zealand presents an opportunity to indulge in their passion while staying at hotels and resorts of the highest standard. This is true of both the North and South islands; you can literally go from the top of the country to the bottom, enjoying great comfort and delicious wine all along the way. Should you wish to pursue any of the other numerous activities offered in each of these places — golf, fly-fishing, hiking, etc. — you can easily adjust the plan to introduce more variety to your vacation. The point of this itinerary is to indicate top wineries in the major regions that enjoy close proximity to some of our favorite New Zealand properties. Taking such a journey, even in part, will give you a splendid taste of the country’s wines.
