It will be then onto the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach and a lookout over this beautiful golden sand beach. We will then make our way out through the apple orchards and the hop fields behind Motueka to Moutere Hills Vineyard and Cafe which is situated among the picturesque hills near Nelson.
It is a family owned boutique vineyard and winery, and also has beer and cider for tasting, owned and operated by Rusty Rayne and Lisa Goodson.

Vicki gave the six of us an excellent day in the Nelson area - so much better than either of the two shore excursions that our cruise ship had on offer. We got a good overview of the area - the Abel Tasman National Park, the beautiful beaches, and the fruit/vineyard country. The WOW Museum & Classic Car Gallery turned out to be great - we are glad we relied on Vicki's guidance as to what to include in our day. Lunch outside at the Moutere Hills Vineyard was perfect.
