We specialise in wine tours and are genuine local craft beer enthusiasts based right here in sunny Nelson.

Our clients from around the world continue to stay in touch with us via social media and some are planning to come back for another visit. Going into our 10th year, we are very proud to be the company who took the risk to redefine the Nelson tour experience, raising the bar to produce a fun, flexible, relaxed and personalised style tour.

We had a wonderful day with CJ as our host and driver. The tour was designed based on the weather and passengers. The wineries were beautiful, relaxed and offered enough education about the wines without being overwhelming. It was very entertaining and fun. Thanks CJ!
