We visited Wanaka for the skiing but not much snow so we searched for alternative entertainment! Being ardent foodies this Taste of Central tour fitted the bill perfectly. This was a full day of tempting treats starting with canopies and wine tastings at a gorgeous little vineyard, onto Cromwell famous for its stone fruit for more tastings of goodies, then onto a cheesery with a great selection of local produced cheese, my favourite was the blue! The highlight of the day was a mouth watering 4 course lunch at another rustic but stylish vineyard with great ambiance. The dishes were chosen by the chef who uses local, seasonal ingredients to produce some very attractive and tasty plates. Finally, we headed to quaint little Arrowtown and as we didn’t have desert with our lunch we tried some tasty sweet treats. As well as the great food and wine, our guide John was a font of knowledge and he brought the area to life with his stories, very entertaining! He got the pace of the day just right too and we appreciated that we had time by ourselves to enjoy our lunch together. All in all if you enjoy quality food and you want to get a insiders feel for the area this tour is highly recommended.
