We were recommended to book a wine tour through the Gisborne Wine Centre by our motel (Bella Vista). We went on the tour on a Saturday and there were just two of us. The tour guide Ray was fantastic and very attentive. We visited Bushmere (Shona was fabulous as was the huge collection of wines to taste). Matawhero was great, we had lunch there which was very tasty, although only four wine tastings at this venue. Finally we visited Stone Bridge, again we were well looked after. The tour cost $110 per person and lasted about 5 hours. It was fairly good value for money, with Bushmere standing out as the best venue on the tour.
During our weekend we popped into the Wine Centre several times to sample more wines (they have two flights of Gisborne wines for a very reasonable $12 each). Marcus and Fiona looked after us very well and we even ended up having a few drinks with some of the locals after the wine tour!
Would definitely recommend, both for the tour and just relaxing in a nice environment drinking fine wine!
