Overview

VeloVino Tours offers private Cycle or Wine tours. Our guided cycle tours on high-end, lightweight bikes range from 20k-100k and are on the quiet, small back roads or the Great Taste Trail of Nelson. If wine is your passion, sit back as we ferry you in our Mercedes van to the best boutique sustainable/organic wineries in the region. If your idea of adventure includes a bit of both, our 'Wheel & Wine' Tour is for you. Get going in the morning with a scenic ride, stop at a local cafe for lunch to refuel, and then wind down the day with a couple of winery visits.
