At A Glance...


Travel across New Zealand for 10 Days and fully immerse yourself in the country’s wine culture. We plan all the travel arrangements so you can kick back, relax, and focus on getting the most out of New Zealand and its wines.

Drink wine at the source

Visit 20+ Wineries, each with its own history and philosophy towards making wine. There we will learn the secrets of the wine business straight from the winemakers who eat, sleep, and breathe wine and whose hard work built New Zealand’s international reputation as a source of great wines.

Become a wine expert

Taste 100+ of New Zealand’s best wines during wine tastings with the winemakers and obtain professional wine knowledge you can only get from visiting cellars and walking through vineyards. Forget cluelessly surfing the web or staring at labels in wine stores.

Learn directly from wine experts

Join Eddie McDougall, award–winning winemaker, wine judge, columnist and TV personality behind The Flying Winemaker, and explore the intricacies of New Zealand’s wines in an intimate and personal setting. The tour is limited to 12 people to ensure everyone can get a personalised experience and focus on what matters most. The wine!

Rest and Relax

Enjoy accommodation and meals in 4 unique locations across the country: Waiheke Island, Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough, and Central Otago. There are few things better than kicking back with a good glass of red in the middle of a beautiful part of the world.


Experience the diverse natural beauty of New Zealand, which is well known for its breathtaking landscapes and for being the location where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed. There will be plenty of opportunities for sightseeing!
