It’s so close to the weekend! We are SO excited that we’ve listed the best wineries to head to for a catch up with the girlfriends, or whomever you’d like.

There’s nothing better than planning out your weekend, making time for yourself and thinking of sipping grape juice at wineries to get you excited about the weekend. I asked around the office about the best spots to go to…

1. Peter Yealands, Marlborough, New Zealand (my favourite)
Innovative and sustainable, Yealands wine is oh so tasty! Such a nice experience to taste the wines on site and from there drive around the property seeing the vines and you might spot a special breed of sheep or two.

2. Casita Miro, Waiheke Island, New Zealand (Krystal’s favourite)
The beautiful lush surroundings will make you feel like you’re in Spain. Especially the Gaudí inspired mosiac artwork at the entrance. Unfortunately they are closed during the winter though!

3. Cable Bay Vineyards, Waiheke Island, New Zealand (Annabel’s favourite)
The perfect place to go with friends or family. You can walk up there too via “a-off-the-beaten-track” and once you’re there you can grab a blanket sit outside on the lawn or sit inside in their stunning open plan restaurant.

4. Pegasus Bay, North Canterbury, New Zealand (Angela’s favourite)
Family owned and in the wine industry since 1970, Pegasus Bay is a perfect spot to visit throughout the seasons to taste wines. The winery has a stunning outdoor space to hang out in the summer.

5. Amisfield Winery, Queenstown, New Zealand (Sarah’s favourite)
Queenstown is so beautiful already but if you go along to Amisfield winery you’ll be in for a treat. The winery is set on Lake Hayes with stone buildings, that will make you think of Ireland.
