I already gushed about the Abel Tasman National Park and lamented the fact that many New Zealand visitors don’t seem to make it to Nelson.
Well, here’s another reason to spend some time here.
Nelson is home to so many great wineries that you could visit a different one every day for three weeks and still not hit them all.
We paid a visit to Neudorf Vineyards on a sunny warm Wednesday afternoon and had the place to ourselves. I loved the comfortable ambiance of the winery, and my glass of the Moutere Chardonnay was so delicious. They even ship their wines worldwide.
After a few hours here, we were hungry and headed to the Grape Escape on the way back to our AirBnB in Nelson.
We just made it before closing in late afternoon, and while they weren’t serving lunch anymore, we did snag a delicious piece of hazelnut and kahlua merengue cake.
