Food, Beverage & Retail
Nelson Tasman’s abundance of local flavours - sun-kissed fruit, farm-fresh vegetables, succulent seafood, boutique wines and craft brews and wines - provide endless gastronomic inspiration for those organising conference and events in the region.
Local vineyards have established a fine reputation for Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir. And local breweries cater for beer-lovers too! Award-winning wineries with cellar/restaurant doors include Mahana Vineyard, Petite Fleur at Seifried Estate, Neudorf Vineyards, Kahurangi Estate and Waimea Estates.
With more than 28 boutique wineries and 11 craft breweries there's no better way to get the real flavour of the region than enjoying wine and been matched with some of the country's finest dining options.
And if you need a way to work up an appetite why not undertake a little retail therapy enjoying more creative outlets in the form of the local art galleries, markets or boutiques dotted around Nelson city and the wider Tasman region.
