Day 6: Abel Tasman National Park - Nelson

Today, set out on a full day tour to enjoy Nelson’s glorious wineries and fabulous scenery and also pay a visit to the quaint and historic Mapua Wharf. This gourmet wine and scenic tour is an excellent introduction to the Nelson Wine Region, and includes visits to award-winning wineries on the Waimea Plains and the Moutere Hills. Waimea means “river gardens” in Maori and has stony soils of alluvial origin, high sunshine hours and a moderate maritime influence. The Moutere Hills are softly rolling hills that were formed from the weathered gravels of an ancient river system, which originally reached from St Arnaud to the coast. The gravel-threaded clay soils are renowned for producing wines of richness and texture. Both regions have a great reputation for the aromatic varieties of riesling, pinot gris and gewürztraminer, and their own distinctive take on sauvignon blanc, some exquisite examples of chardonnay and pinot noir, and superb stickies. Nelson wines are sold around the world, but here you have the chance to experience wines in the place they were created. Per hectare of vines planted, Nelson consistently wins more awards than the other region in New Zealand. Stop for a gourmet lunch at either a vineyard or another renowned local dining establishment, learn to taste wines like a professional, and possibly meet the winemakers and owners of the vineyards (subject to availability). Sampling approximately 20 boutique Nelson wines will tempt the most discerning wine lover. As you travel between the wineries, cover over 60 miles (100 kilometers) of pristine scenery all while your experienced guide gives an informative overview on the local European and Maori history. Weather permitting, a short scenic walk can also be included, therefore comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This tour lasts approximately six hours, with pick-up and drop-off from Nelson or Tasman accommodation included.
