From across the Pacific New Zealand calls "kia ora koutou" beckoning two couples to experience these enchanted islands on a ten-day journey with Cyril and Blakesley Chappellet, curated by Seasonz Travel, Air New Zealand and New Zealand Wines.
Take flight to Auckland in the luxury of Air New Zealand's business premier cabin. The exceptional service and comfort will have you relaxed and ready for adventure when you touch down. Spend a day and a night seeing Auckland, sailing the Hauraki Gulf and savoring award-winning cuisine. End your second day with a flight to Waiheke Island, for two nights at the Boatshed in a private suite with ocean views. While on the island, stroll the beaches and visit local wineries including Man O’War Vineyards.
Next you’re off to the iconic Huka Lodge on Lake Taupo for a two-night respite. Nestled on the banks of the Waikato River with hypnotic turquoise waters, Huka is rated one of the world’s top retreats and trout-fishing destinations. Onwards to Hawke’s Bay and the Farm at Cape Kidnappers where you’ll take in spectacular views of the Pacific and partake in a multitude of activities including supper at Craggy Range. Queenstown, New Zealand’s adrenaline capital, is your next destination where Sir Russell Coutts, five-time America’s Cup Champion, invites you to spend three nights at his Central Otago farm. Dine in historic Arrowtown, see the Remarkables, sip Pinot Noir at Two Paddocks and Felton Road and venture to the Milford Sound fjords.
Back home, reminisce about your escapades over dinner for 24 at Chappellet Vineyard. Supper will transport you back to New Zealand with Bluff oysters, grilled lamb and New Zealand wines poured side-by-side with gems from our cellar. Take home two 3L bottles each of 2003 and 2012 Pritchard Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, the pinnacle of Chappellet’s winemaking program.
“Kia waimarie” a New Zealand wish that you will be lucky enough to capture this extraordinary adventure.
