New Zealand’s temperate maritime climate is not only ideal for growing grapes, but also for tasting and enjoying wine. If you are planning to visit New Zealand, you can enjoy the wineries across all seasons and all weather.
While the wine regions are known for their abundance of sunshine, there’s no better way to pass the occasional rainy day than visiting the cellar doors. New Zealand’s wineries are found in some of the most stunning environments, often along dramatic coastlines and among rolling green hills.
With hundreds of tasting rooms, winery restaurants, vineyard accommodation, winery tours and experiences spread across 10 regions, there is something for everyone. The cellar doors are comfortable and approachable, and provide an environment for both wine novices and aficionados alike to meet the friendly people behind New Zealand wine, often even the winemaker!
