From start to finish this was a brilliant trip! Gareth is an excellent, informative guide. Plenty of wines to sample and delicious food at progressive locations. Sipping champagne as the sun set at Te Mata Peak was memorable.

Our host, Gareth Kelly, was extraordinarily informative about New Zealand and especially its food and wine. We visited several excellent wineries and enjoyed a progressive dinner with wine accompaniments concluding at the gorgeous Terroir restaurant for dessert. We could not recommend this experience more highly.

Went on the twilight trip and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We were fortunate in the weather and the company. Food great..my favourite was the appetiser platter at Vidal. Knowledgeable guide and a great taster for a longer trip
