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.
