Combine a city tour with wine tastings, a gourmet lunch and artisanal chocolate in Christchurch’s picturesque rural surrounds
City | Food & wine
Contrast urban optimism with viticulture cheer on this twin-focus guided tour. You’ll start in Christchurch to see for yourself how the city is emerging from the rubble of its 2010 and 2011 earthquakes; its new leaf can be best found in your visit to its superb Botanic Gardens. You’ll then turn to the numerous boutique vineyards within easy reach of the city to sample the aromatic whites and flavourful pinot noirs that have put Waipara on the oenological map. Along the way, pause for a wine-matched lunch, chocolate tastings and the views from Port Hills, overlooking the city, Canterbury Plains and the Southern Alps.
