Hop of the boat and jump into a day where you will delight your tastebuds with some of New Zealand’s best beer and wine.

You will learn a wealth of information and will arrive back home amazing your family and friends back home with what you have learnt about New Zealand Wine, Beer and Spirits, on your Taste of New Zealand Tour.


We visit three locations on this tour:

·         Straight 8 Estate – Located just south of Rolleston this family-owned vineyard is a relaxing and welcoming with plenty of space to wander around. It is also named after a 1935 Light Sports Railton which has been in their family for 50 years. This classic vintage racing even has its own garage inside the cellar door dating back to its era and it is still being used today - not just a showpiece.

·         Brew Academy – Located in Waltham, Christchurch, this is the place to taste some of New Zealand’s best beers, and they have teamed up with Smoke n Barrel for the perfect food to along with it.

·         The Spirits Workshop – Located in Sydenham, they are a small batch distillery that began when four whisky lovers brought a small still, with a curiosity to develop distinctly New Zealand spirts. There is always a story behind each of their products and what they have created.


You will be driven in comfort in our modern, comfortable minibuses packed with extras, just to make your journey that bit easier. Led by our fun and knowledgeable and passionate tour guides, this journey will come to life in a new way for you.
