Nelson wine tour packages for a taste of Nelson
Vintage Wine Tours offers a range of wine tour options around Nelson boutique wineries that have been handpicked as much for their idyllic settings and warm hospitality as the fine quality of their wines.
Your tour host Rod Malcolm will share his insights into the region’s high points as well as the different varieties of wine and the nuances that each vineyard and growing season brings. Wine tours are intentionally small – up to 5 people – to ensure each guest can participate in the full cellar door experience.
With his well-travelled palate, Rod can also discuss varieties and labels from wine growing regions all over the world. More about Rod Malcolm and Vintage Wine Tours
