Exquisite Wines

A lot of sunshine, river stones from riverbeds, good soil with clay and creativity: This is Tasman's and Nelson's secret mix for creating unique artisan wines. The region's reputation says it produces some of New Zealand best Chardonnay and aromatics. Learn from our guides at this Winery Tour about the regions Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay,  Riesling, Pinot Noir and other varieties. Tasman area wines are sold around the world. Boutique family-owned wineries craft exquisite wines from the hills to the plains.

The Hills

The soft rolling Moutere Hills are formed from weathered gravels of ancient river beds. These rivers reached from St Arnaud further inland to the coast. Mixed with clay, this soil is well known for producing great wines of richness and texture.

The plains

The Waimea Plains (which means river garden) provide a fabulous terrain with a moderate maritime influence. Stony alluvial soils and high sunshine create aromatic white wines and perfumed and elegant red wines.
