Kia Ora and welcome to my Wine Wednesday on the road. I’ll let the video do my explaining and then jump straight post. So sit back, pour yourself a glass, and enjoy more scenes from New Zealand. Oh and try not to work too hard before during the Holidays, mmm K?
Our first vineyard/winery stop was just a quick 45 minutes up the road in Northern Canterbury. Pegasus Bay Winery was gorgeous and their property is filled with a huge garden area just overlooking a range of rolling hills. We sat outside for a while admiring the view.
They also had a gourmet restaurant tucked away inside an old Victorian house. It was packed full of locals and tourists. We drooled over everyone’s plate as we walked through house to take a little tour ourselves.
Then it was off to the tasting room. We had a sample flight of 11 different wines ranging from Riesling to Merlot Cabernet. Pegasus is known for their Riesling and I have to say, I was quite impressed. I’m usually not a Riesling gal due to the sweetness but this was DELICIOUS! Yes, I was like a kid in a candy store, oohing and ahhhing it all.
After our wine tasting and property viewing, nature called. Yes, that nature.
It was probably one of the best parts of the visit. no no, not because of the bathroom trip but because what was written on the walls inside the bathroom! I laughed at all these quotes. Other ladies were laughing too, but I think it’s because I was taking a picture of the bathroom wall, ya pretty sure I was focal point there.
Ahh good times good times! I might be stealing those quotes for my kitchen décor some day.
Well, that’s about it. We plan on heading to a few more vineyards throughout our stay, so I will definitely keep you posted.
New Zealand Lollycake and Muesli, that’s a good combo isn’t it?
Hope you are enjoying the Holidays! Any Wine or Vineyard lovers out there?
Cheers to Wine Wednesday! See you in a few days.
