Follow the Grapevine with this self drive tour, visiting some of the best wine regions in New Zealand's North Island. Start your journey in Auckland, visit the steamy mud pools and forceful geysers of Rotorua before relaxing with lake views at Taupo. Take a walking tour of the Art Deco buildings in Napier before hitting the famous Hawke's Bay vineyards. With craggy ranges and lush green hills, this area produces some excellent wines. There are so many to choose from, plan your time carefully.
Head for Martinborough, maybe stopping for some rather unusual chocolates in the Greytown chocolate factory, to begin the wine trail once more. Here the vineyards are closer to hand and a meal in one of their restaurants is an enjoyable experience. Finish your Grapevine Tour in Wellington, ensuring you visit the fabulous Te Papa Museum.
