Had a wonderful day with Naomi. Caught the train from Wellington and met Naomi at the designated station. Advice to get a printout as at the station they want a photocopy before giving you the ticket. Train ride was good. Sit on the RHS of the train for the views going to the designated stop. Went to 4 wineries and had a good chance to taste at each one. Lunch was superb at the café area. If you do want to buy the wines, best to buy at the wineries itself compared to others as MUCH cheaper unless you are shipping back home. Will do this tour again if get the chance to be in Wellington

Interesting wines

The woman driving us was excellent, the food was good, and the wines were interesting. It was a bit disappointing, however, that we met the winemaker in only one of the four vineyards. Personally I would have prefered to rather visit more of the smaller vineyards where it could be possible to talk to the winemaker, and get to know more about their winemaking principles and considerations. Five stars to the Julicher vineyard where we met an engaged winemaker, and tasted wines that stood out from the average!

One of the best wine tours I've been on. Our guide was friendly, well versed in the local area and the different wines made, and had great relationships with the vineyards. The lunch was delicious, the train trip was incredibly scenic, and the bus comfortable. Would highly recommend this tour!
