VELOVINO TOURS offers Cycle Tours or Winery Tours. Our private, customised tours cater to avid cycling and wine enthusiasts looking to experience the best of the Nelson-Tasman, a region of epic beauty, flavour and hospitality. Take a guided bicycle tour on quiet, scenic backroads or the Nelson/Tasman Great Taste trail. Glenn has an extensive list of routes and bikes from which to choose. If wine is your passion, Juliane will transport you to boutique, family-run wineries where their passion for sustainable/organic farming methods helps create vibrant, aromatic white wines and rich, luscious red wines.

Enjoy both activities?  Experience a full day of cycling and wine on our “Wheel and Wine” Tour. Your day will start out cycling the trails, with properly sized bikes and a route created to match your group’s abilities and desires. After a couple of hours enjoying the fresh air, we will stop to refuel for a tasty lunch at one of our local cafes. The day will slowly wind down as we head out to a couple of the region’s best wineries and sample their delicious wines.

VeloVino Tours is owned by Glenn & Juliane Cormier, adventure- seekers and world travelers who settled in Nelson and enjoy sharing two of their passions: cycling and wine. Over the past decades, Glenn has toured many areas of the world by bike. Juliane, a strong cyclist in her own right, is a Certified Specialist of Wine who considers herself a true “pinotphile” after living in and tasting through Burgundy, France for 2 years.
