New Zealand is a Mecca of sorts for wine lovers, and visiting its renowned vineyards and wine regions has been one of the many many reasons I’ve looked forward to an EnZed trip. Now, let the wine tours commence!
We started in Hawke’s Bay, hitting Esk Valley, Clearview and Te Mata wineries, then yesterday moved on to the Marlborough region, where we enjoyed some amazing Sauvignon Blancs and roses at various wineries, including Domaine George Michel and Hunter’s all while surrounded by remarkably gorgeous environs – sprawling vines and looming mountain peaks.
And just to make things even more civilized than ever, we indulged in some lunchtime charcuterie and cheese platters at La Veranda, the cafe attached to Domaine George Michel winery. HEAVENLY.
