Insider Tips For Going On A Wine Tour For The First Time

If you have never been on a wine tour before but are looking to attend one, you certainly have something exciting to look forward to! But if you have never been on a wine tour, you may also feel a little apprehensive and not quite sure what to expect.

Here at Enjoi NZ, we offer Waiheke Island Wine Tours and Queenstown Wine Tours, both of which are truly fantastic and memorable tours. In our years of hosting wine tours, we have picked up a few tips and tricks that you may find very useful as a newbie to wine tours.

Dress For The Occasion

You want to ensure that you are comfortable for a day out, so wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes. Dark colours are often best suited to a wine tour in case you encounter any spills!

Don’t Wear Strong Perfume

A major aspect of wine tasting is the smell of the wine. If you are wearing a strong perfume, it may overpower the scent of the wine.

Bring A Camera/ Charge Your Phone

The vineyards of NZ are truly magnificent! Bring along a camera or charge up your phone if you wish to use it to take photos. There will definitely be many incredible photo opportunities for you to enjoy.

Ask Questions

On your tour, you’re going to meet many interesting people and learn a lot about wine! Don’t be shy to ask the guide as well as the winemakers questions. You’re sure to learn something fascinating!

Ensure You Eat

We offer lunch and snacks on our wine tours, but it is a good idea to have breakfast and make the most of the snacks and food that come your way throughout the day. Drinking wine on an empty stomach is never a good idea, so be sure to line your stomach.

Have Fun And Make Friends

There are more than likely going to be other people on your wine tour, so keep an open mind and be friendly. You are sure to make some new friends, or at least get along for the day!
