Te Tau Ihu, including Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough, are famous for our sunny climate which also lends itself to growing amazing grapes and hops. A number of brewers and vintners in the area skilfully turn these into beer and wine. This tour will take in a range of aspects of this industry from the huge wine and bottle distribution centre at Port Nelson (including a tour of the wider Port), the hop grower co-operative NZ Hops, a winery for lunch and then wrapping up with a visit to a brewery. At each location the people involved will tell us about their operations and of course you will be able to sample the products.
We will ensure everyone has closed toe shoes and no loose jewellery.
Price includes return transport, lunch and a drink.
Buses will depart the Trafalgar Centre at 10.00am
Please ensure you are wearing closed toe shoes and no loose jewellery.
