Wine Tour with Māori Culture in Wanaka

An exciting wine tour with an added element of local Māori culture.

Highlights

  • Unique wine experience with Māori culture
  • Showcasing some of the best wineries in Central Otago in the Wanaka, Tarras and Cromwell area
  • Authentic New Zealand experience
  • Approximately 18-22 wine tastings and food

Your day begins at 11 am, when you will be collected from your Wanaka accommodation.

You will be welcomed with a Māori greeting, the Hongi, which helps to establish a connection with you and the Māori people of New Zealand and the Whenua (land).

A quick 5-minute drive gets you to Aitkens Folly or Rippon where you will get to try a delectable selection of Pinot Noir, Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and more!

The second winery is Māori Point near Tarras, following that is the Dessert Heart winery. At Dessert Heart, you may get treated to a live performance of the Māori Dance the 'Haka'.

Your last stop will be either Mt Difficulty, Wooing Tree or Akarua before your drive back to Wanaka.

This is a truly insightful and interesting way to learn about the local Māori history, enjoy some tasty snacks and lovely wines while gaining insight into the history of the beautiful Otago, Queenstown and Gibbston regions.

Fantastic Personal Tour

Looked after from start to finish. Joe has a very unique and personal business. It was a great mix of learning about the Moari Culture and experiencing the wines of the region. Well worth the experience.

An amazing immersive experience

Joe the tour guide was amazing. Learning the Mauri history and culture along the drive amplified the experience and the local wines were beyond our expectations. Would recommend this tour to anyone travelling in the Queenstown/Wanaka region. We will definitely be back!
