Awesome day out, would absolutely recommend to anyone who appreciates good wine with a good story to welcome you to each winery. The cycling was very easy going and the advice and map made it simple to choose a route to find your favourite types of wine. Also being able to buy wine and have the bottles waiting for you on the bus home was handy

Friendly and well organised. Plenty of places to visit. You do need to plan lunch as places have limited capacity but the wineries are great. Less is more as rushing round too many doesn't give you enough time for decent tastings. Cloudy Bay is nice but a bit pretentious and a bit of a trek, Framingham was probably the best we got to and No1 nearer the bike depot is free and the fizz worth a stop. Probably need a couple of these trips to get round enough of the vineyards around there. If you want to visit as many as poss try an e-bike. The bikes were fine but the saddle on the hard side was the only complaint if you don't cycle often. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful can't fault them.
