A land of fine wine

From subtropical Northland, almost at the tip of the North Island, to 46° S, which is home to the world’s most southerly vineyards, New Zealand is truly a land of wine.

Extending some 1,600km (1,000 miles) most wine regions are found on the eastern coastlines of the North and South Islands, no further than 120km, or 80 miles from the ocean. 

New Zealand’s vineyards benefit from the moderating effect of a maritime climate with long sunshine hours and cool nights to produce world-class cool-climate wines that are distinguished as being not just from a wine region, but from a sub-region and a place.

The country’s diverse regions and sub-regional characteristics coupled with word-class hospitality make for a wine enthusiast’s dream experience.


Kia ora, welcome! I’m a 5th generation kiwi, a New Zealand wine judge and foodie who wants to share my passion for New Zealand; its sights, history, culture, and lifestyle.

From the internationally renown wineries to the appointment only and boutique vineyards, my first-hand knowledge of New Zealand wine and personal relationships will give a rare, unmatched experience. 

I am an experienced guide, travel advisor and planner, with wide knowledge and passion for NZ wine and food, culture, history and lifestyle. 

I look forward to planning and making your experience in New Zealand unique and wonderful.
