There are more than 100 wine and food festivals in New Zealand! With Travelogy recommended TREATology tours, you won’t miss the essential. We have visited most of the important wineries, lots of restaurants and eateries around the island and we know how to make your journey an unique experience.
One wouldn’t expect New Zealand to have a cultural rich cuisine. The truth is different and far from traditional “fish’n chips”, “bangers and mash” and “sausage sizzle”. Exceptional beef and lamb, plenty of seafood like green lipped mussels, crayfish/lobster, famous Bluff oysters and local whitebait, as well as the award winning cheeses are just a few options that make New Zealand a real culinary destination.
On top of that, there are Mãori delicacies, from Pork and Puha to Rewena Paroa (seafood). These traditional Mãori recipes are more than just delicious dishes, they are a journey into a different and rich culture.
In South Island, there are two of the major wine destination of New Zealand, the Central Otago Pinot Noir and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. These are the myths, the real ones, as the two provinces are internationally renown for their wines and wine making techniques.
The famous wine writer Robert Parker in his “1001 Wines you Must Drink before you Die” has mentioned seven New Zealand wines, which is a real performance considering the fact that wine industry is relatively young here by comparison with other countries/regions. The so called “New World Wines” includes Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
TREATOLOGY IS OUR RECOMMENDED TOUR FOR SOUL, MIND AND CULTURE. IT’S NOT ABOUT TRIVIAL EATING AND DRINKING. BE READY TO BECAME RICHER THROUGH CULTURE, KNOWLEDGE AND THE JOY OF LIFE DISCOVERING REAL EXPERIENCES.
