On arrival, you will be given a detailed cellar door map designed by us which highlights all the bike paths and quiet roads (and which roads to avoid) to help you safely navigate your way around.
We will show you a video on all the cellar doors so you know what they offer and who has food, plus we will pass on up-to-date information and friendly advice to help you plan your day.
Your time is then your own to explore and enjoy, where you bike at your own pace as you won’t have to worry about keeping up with others.
If you need us, or if something happens to your bike, our emergency backup service means we will be out to look after you in a jiffy.
We have a great selection of bikes (with comfy seats!), they all have baskets and dedicated wine panniers and if you end up buying more wine than you can carry, just give us a ring as we can pick it up for you.
Cell Phone for those photo opportunities or in case you need us!
Sunscreen & Sunglasses
Wet weather gear in case of unexpected rain
Over 18 years ID (for our younger looking visitors) - this must be either a passport, NZ Drivers Licence or a NZ Over 18 ID Card (please note that an international drivers' licence cannot be accepted by cellar staff)
These charges are not included in the bike hire and so it is just a case of paying for your tastings as you go. The prices are usually around the $5-$10 p/p mark, some are complimentary.
Not only will you get to sample their “tasting flight” and learn about their wine, but at many of the smaller boutique ones, you also get to hear their stories from the owners themselves.
Some cellar doors refund the tasting experience charge if you purchase a bottle of wine from them and they can all accept credit card, eftpos or cash.
Don’t forget, we offer a free pickup service of any wines you buy whilst you are out on the bikes.
Steve’s Wise Words…
“Making wine is a passion and for many it has been a lifetime of hard work, commitment and sacrifice."
"There is no such thing as bad wine, it is just “not quite to your taste.”
"Wine tasting can be so very subjective, so don't worry if you don't like them all.”
