Flaxmore Vineyards

By appointment during the winter months (just give us a call or email): Meet us, taste our wines, enjoy our art gallery and a stroll through our family vineyard in the beautiful Moutere hills near Nelson, with stunning views to the snow-topped Kahurangi mountains. Our wines are crafted from hand-picked vines on Flaxmore’s north-facing slopes. Clay-gravels, climate and attention to detail have resulted in fine, balanced wines which fully express our vineyard’s special character. We have just opened our unique gallery with a range of art from local and NZ artists, encompassing photography, painting and sculpture. A permanent art collection is also on display to enjoy along with your wine tasting and vineyard walk. You can visit us every weekend through the Summer (Oct-Easter) from 10 until 5 or, if you'd like to visit on weekdays, just give us a call or text. During Winter (Apr-Sept), call us for an appointment.

Isel House

Reviewed By 60stravellers2014 - Tauranga, New Zealand

We had a lovely visit to Isel House. The house was lovely & the grounds were beautiful. We even met up with a volunteer that we had gone to school with 65yrs ago. He advised us about the night market, so we went back that evening, looked around the stalls & enjoyed a varied dinner. Would certainly recomment.

Broadgreen Historic House

Reviewed By Lisa_SKiwi - Devonport, New Zealand

Really enjoyed visiting the cottage. It is a 2 storey house made of cob and well presented. The fittings and furnishings are typical Victorian era so expect it to be cluttered, darker and heavier on the eye in terms of decor. The tour guide was really informative and helpful and helped to bring the house and its inhabitants to life. Great to see what a working home would have been like especially with the dairy and the large kitchen. Recommended for historic buffs!
