Winery Tours

 

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 exquisite, lush aromatic white wines- Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurtztraminer- as well as full-bodied 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.
