Neudorf Vineyards

Nelson Region

Sitting pretty in Upper Moutere, with views across the grapes to the mountains of Kahurangi National Park, bijou Neudorf produces gorgeous wines including seductive pinot noir and some of NZ’s finest chardonnay. A $5 donation to the local rescue helicopter service is requested for tastings. Cheese platters can be purchased, but you're welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy in the grounds.
