New online resource enhances New Zealand wine touring experiences
One of the great pleasures of visiting New Zealand is sampling its world-class wines. From Auckland in the north to Central Otago in the south, the country has no less than 10 wine regions set amongst some of its most beautiful landscapes.
Thanks to a temperate maritime climate that allows a wide range of wine varieties to flourish, the offerings include world-famous Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, silky pinot noirs from Central Otago, elegant Chardonnays and gewürztraminers from Gisborne and Wairarapa, fine cabernet blends and syrahs from Hawke's Bay, and more.
Visit Us, a new wine tourism resource just added to the Wine New Zealand website, lets visitors make the most of their stay by providing fully searchable and constantly updated information before and during their trip.
Fully mobile-friendly for visitors on the move, Visit Us showcases over 450 wine experiences, including an initial listing of 213 cellar doors, 99 dining options, 57 accommodation options, and 39 tours and other experiences.
Visit Us is arranged in four sections. 'Sip' is devoted to listings of cellar doors throughout the country, with links to company websites.'Dine' focuses on winery restaurants and cafes, 'Stay' on vineyard accommodation and 'Play' covers wine and food tours, trails and experiences.
Within each region, tourism experiences can be found via Google map-based searching and by filtering of experience types. Key information includes map coordinates, phone numbers, email and website addresses as well as venue descriptions, videos and images.
