Settle back and enjoy a winery tour with Juliane to the best sustainable and/or organic wineries in the Nelson region. There’s a fresh and wild energy in Nelson’s wine country – a rare combination of pure environment, glacial soil, mild climate and pioneering spirit. From the Waimea Plains to the Moutere Hills, the resulting wines are award-winning with a quite different expression from the same varietals grown elsewhere.
VeloVino Tours celebrates the natural style of winemaking that favours art over science, palate and instinct over chemistry, and hand-craftsmanship over mass production. There are 24 boutique, family-run wineries in the region. You will see first-hand how working with organic and even biodynamic practices in the vineyards & winery is helping these wineries create vibrant aromatic white wines- Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurtztraminer- as well as lush and elegant red wines.
Enjoy the “sunniest spot in New Zealand” and breathtaking views in the picturesque hills and plains of one of New Zealand’s most fabulous regions.
