Full description
Discover four boutique wineries in North Canterbury on a half-day wine-tasting tour from Christchurch. Depart in the morning or the afternoon, with the option to include a platter winery lunch. After pick-up from your Christchurch hotel, journey 45 minutes to Waipara, one of South Island’s up-and-coming wine regions. The region is well known for its warm, dry climate and rich alluvial soils - ideal for superior wine production. Over forty vineyards and wineries pepper the landscape of the valley, with Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominating local plantings. Visit cellar doors and tasting rooms on guided tours of four boutique vineyards in North Canterbury. Enjoy tastings of a distinctive selection of both red and white wines at Pegasus Bay, Waipara Springs, Greystone Winery and Waipara Hills Winery. Enjoy a lunch of fresh seasonal dishes that pair well with your wine (if option selected). The tour concludes with your return to your Christchurch accommodation.
