Taste your way around New Zealand on this mouth-watering 9-day self-drive culinary adventure including the world-famous wine regions of Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa and Marlborough.
Tucked away at the bottom of the world, New Zealand is a paradise for those who prefer the finer things in life. The country’s rich soil and favourable climate means it produces some of the world’s best food and wine – in some of the most stunning landscapes, be it close to a stunning shoreline or nestled in a rural area with an off-the-beaten-track charm. Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa and Marlborough are 3 of the best – and most beautiful – regions in which to enjoy a mouth-watering fresh produce and a matching glass of wine.
Departing from Auckland, hit the road to discover New Zealand’s best food and wine experiences. New Zealand’s Art Deco capital, Hawke’s Bay is known for its red wines – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah – and stunning Chardonnays, while rural Wairarapa, with its bush-clad ranges and rugged coast, is home to some of the country’s best Pinot Noir. The Marlborough wine region, meanwhile, is all about world-famous Sauvignon Blanc, delicious fresh seafood and diverse landscapes, from valleys of vines to sheltered waterways. You will embark on guided tours of each of these regions.
Along the way, you will discover New Zealand food goes way beyond fish and chips and barbeques – New Zealand chefs have developed a distinct Pacific Rim cuisine. Expect to indulge in plenty of seafood (like greenlipped mussels, crayfish (lobster), Bluff oysters and fresh fish), award winning cheeses and of course the famous lamb. You should also expect a laidback, friendly atmosphere wherever you eat; Kiwis love to keep things casual.
This relaxed 9-day self-drive package includes 8-nights’ boutique hotel accommodation on a twin share basis. At the end of each fun-filled day, you will sleep in comfort and have access to luxurious facilities and amenities including swimming pools, plunge pools and spas. Eight days full size car rental is included as well as activities and sightseeings as specified in the itinerary. Daily breakfast provided.
Indulge in New Zealand’s best food and wine experiences on this 9-day self-drive road trip. You’ll discover food and wine that’s original, world-class, and fresh from the source.
