We were guided through three popular wineries; Nautilus
We were guided through three popular wineries; Nautilus, Framington and Wairau River, and were taught about the wine and creation process. We then spent the rest of the afternoon pedalling around the vineyards on our own, a stunning experience I would recommend. All roads were bike friendly and flat with most vineyards in close proximity to each other, which made it a relaxing ride.
