Yealands - Witherhills - Warau River Wines - Te Whare Ra Organic Wines


Yealands Family Wines which is totally unique in that it is the world's first carbo NZero winery and prides itself on sustainability. They boast New Zealand's largest solar panel installation. I will take you on a short self drive tour through the vineyard after you have enjoyed a wine tasting with sweeping views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is the largest vineyard of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. We will then make our way to Wither Hills Winery which is situated on the Wither Hills range that borders their vineyards and very picturesque with an array of wines to taste. Afterwards we will make our way to the Warau River Winery for your lunch and a wine tasting while your food is being prepared. Each family member at Wairau plays a key role in the business, from viticulture and winemaking, to finance, administration and the running of the popular Wairau River Cellar Door and Restaurant. Your last stop - Te Whare Ra The 11 Ha vineyard is one of the oldest in Marlborough and is Certified Organic.
