4 Day Wellington - The Culinary Capital

4 Day Wellington - The Culinary Capital

If you're a passionate foodie or just love to eat, take a fun food tour and experience the best of delicious cuisines and gourmet foods in Wellington and the Wairarapa.

Wellington is NZ’s capital. Compact, cosmopolitan, stylish and creative. Nestled between two of New Zealand’s finest wine producing regions, Marlborough and Wairarapa, Wellington is spoilt for choice when it comes to wine. Seeking culinary inspiration for your next short break? We’ve put together a food and wine itinerary to give you a full taste of Wellington.

The QT Museum Wellington is a privately owned luxury boutique hotel opposite Te Papa and the waterfront and a short stroll to live theatres, designer shopping, city markets, Waitangi Park and Oriental Parade’s promenade and beach. French restaurant Hippopotamus is located on the third floor with views of the stunning Wellington harbour. Other choices for dinner include The Ambeli, Floriditas, Matterhorn, or Logan Brown as they all have extensive wine lists and gorgeous food.

Zest’s mouth-watering culinary experience concludes with a delicious, light, three course tasting lunch with matched New Zealand wines at a top Wellington restaurant such as Logan Brown (2009 Cuisine Magazine NZ Restaurant of the Year Winner). Over a relaxed four and a half hour walking gourmet tour around Wellington’s best food places, your personal guide will introduce you to new and favourite flavours. Tour content can vary seasonally, and you may visit a boutique coffee roaster and stylish cafe, renowned specialist fresh produce and gourmet food stores, and a unique contemporary chocolatier. And during the day, your guide can also introduce you to many other aspects of the Capital, ranging from iconic city architecture, sculptures and fantastic places to shop and eat.

Visit the award-winning Martinborough wine region on this all inclusive wine tour and treat your taste buds. Visit four boutique vineyards, meet some of the families behind the vineyards and learn how this sleepy, rural town blossomed into an internationally renowned wine region. Just over an hour from the capital, depart Wellington by rail for a scenic journey with stunning views of Wellington harbour and the Wairarapa Valley. Visit 4 boutique Martinborough vineyards, enjoy wine tastings throughout the day, a delightful gourmet lunch at the charming wine village, sweet delights and later, relax with a delicious cheese platter and coffee. Relax and let our local driver guide you in our modern coach on this all inclusive wine tour. If time allows, browse the charming village craft shops and galleries.
