Food & Wine

Wine Cave Tour, Queenstown

With modern cuisine along with award winning wines, New Zealand is fast becoming known for its world class, fine cuisine. New Zealand cuisine is largely driven by our highly creative chefs using local ingredients and seasonal variations, from both land and sea, along with our dedicated producers of both Food and Wine.

New Zealand’s wine region extends from our winterless North to Central Otago and are spread throughout New Zealand. They are mostly on the eastern coastlines in the rain shadow of the mountains, benefiting from the moderating effect of maritime climate (where no vineyard is more than 120km’s away from the ocean) and the long sunshine hours and cool sea breezes in the evenings.

Our wine regions include Northland, Auckland, Gisborne, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Hawkes Bay, Wairapara, Marlborough, Nelson, Canterbury, North Canterbury, Central Otago and come with their own unique soils and climatic conditions. New Zealand food & wine tours are available in most of these places.

Explore our incredible wine regions, meet our fantastic producers and sample our award winning wines and excellent cuisine.
