Full description
Embark on a wine tasting tour and learn the history of the area which dates back to the 1930s when families of Croatian origin established winemaking in the area. Passed on from generation to generation, these families still make some of New Zealand's most renowned wines today. Alongside a wine tasting, you will enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery of the area. On the first stop of the tour, you will taste the richly flavored wines from the award-winning Soljans vineyard. Enjoy your lunch break at Soljans winery restaurant which serves Mediterranean-style food with a New Zealand twist made from the fresh seasonal produce of the region.  Next, tempt your taste buds at Coopers Creek, who offer an extensive range of wines for every unique taste and occasion. Your journey then takes you to one of the few mainland gannet nesting sites in the world situated on the cliff-tops overlooking the Tasman Sea. Here you get a close-up of gannet behavior without disturbing their environment. Enjoy the views that extend for miles along with the wild, black, iron sand beach of Muriwai. End the tour with a stop at West Brook Winery. The West Brook cellar door looks across an idyllic duck pond and terraced picnic area to row after row of vines. The wines reflect true varietal character and their unique regional origins.

The tour was perfectly paced with a delicious lunch at the first vineyard and a visit to the Gannett colony before the final vineyard. Tastings covered a wide variety if wines and hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. The wines got better with each vineyard we visited and the final stop also had an idyllic location. The gannet colony was a very easy walk and the gannets were nesting within a metre of the viewing platform. It was very special to see chicks being fed so close.
