As well as having stunning scenery, New Zealand is a gastronomic heaven, and a perfect holiday destination for lovers of fine food and wine.
Its thriving gourmet scene makes the most of an abundance of fresh produce including seafood such as crayfish and oysters, lamb, cheeses and organic vegetables and fruits (not forgetting the kiwi fruit, of course). Don't miss a traditional hangi, where staples such as chicken, seafood and vegetables are cooked in traditional Maori style on hot rocks in an earth oven.
To wash it all down, New Zealand also produces world-famous wines in spectacular locations from mountains to coastlines, such as Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay, and Pinot Noir from Otago. Vineyards such as Villa Maria have locations across the country producing a range of wines, and there are lots of boutique vineyards around Auckland, where grapes are grown in rich volcanic soils.
