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 user-friendly 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.

More authoritative information about each region’s climates, soils and specialities is also just a click away and the wider nzwine.com site offers interesting backgrounds on innovation, sustainability, organic wine making plus all the statistics you’ll need.

The Visit Us section of the nzwine.com website can be found here.
