Nelson Tasman: region
Nelson Tasman, New Zealand
Maritime Climate,
Number of wineries
Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Slightly off the beaten tourist track you can find the stunning boutique wine region of Nelson. Despite being one of the smaller regions in New Zealand, these picturesque valleys are renowned for its bountiful crops that produce some of the country’s most aromatic and freshly scented wines. Cultivated in the mid-1800s when German settlers planted the first grape vines, this region is now pioneering in the modern wine industry, and home to iconic international names.

Found on the northern tip of the South Island, Nelson neighbours the Marlborough wine region and benefits from the similar high sunshine hours and sheltered coastline. This enviable growing climate creates the perfect setting for producing their intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc, and vibrant supple pinot noir.

Experiences and attractions

Golden Bay Area

Visit Te Waikoropupu, the largest coldwater springs in the Southern Hemisphere to view some of the clearest water ever measured. Whilst in the Golden Bay area be sure to also stop by Farewell Spit, a 35km natural sandspit, and Cape Farewell, the South Island’s northern most point.

Home of Hops

If wine-tasting isn’t enough to fill your time, Nelson Tasman is also home to all of New Zealand’s hops as the craft brewing capital of the country. Named as the Top Cider City in the world by National Geographic, spend a day sampling the local product.

Abel Tasman National Park

This sheltered bay at the top of the South Island is the place to enjoy a day out on the water. Hike a kayak or book a cruise to see the seals and dolphins to regularly play in the water. Or, for those who prefer land, pack your binoculars and follow the coastline on the Abel Tasman Great Walk.
