Following the successful, sell-out Fabulous Ladies Tours to Champagne and Margaret River, The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society (FLWS) is thrilled to announce Australia’s first women's wine tour of New Zealand. The Fabulous Ladies Wine Tour of New Zealand departs 11 – 17 March 2018 and will visit the regions of Central Otago and Marlborough.

This small group tour is limited to just 12 guests who will experience a fabulous, VIP wine adventure not available to the general public. The 7-day wine extravaganza has been meticulously put together with every detail designed to exude fabulousness. And of course, given the FLWS' passion for promoting women in wine, there is a strong bent towards visiting and highlighting the women in the New Zealand wine industry who are doing remarkable things.

From time spent with industry legends Misha Wilkinson of Misha’s Vineyard in Central Otago and Judy Finn of Neudorf Wines in Marlborough, to meeting the up-and-comers like Lucie Lawrence at Aurum Wines, guests will experience an incredible range of wines made by some of New Zealand’s most fabulous women.

Home to some of the world’s best Pinot Noir, Central Otago is also renowned for incredible Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and some seriously amazing sparkling wines. All set amongst snow capped mountain peaks, deep river valleys and crystal clear glacial lakes. We’ll be exploring this picturesque region from that most adventurous and decadent of cities, Queenstown.

The world knows Marlborough for Sauvignon Blanc, but it’s not until you get here and discover the natural beauty of the landscape and the depth and diversity of it’s wines that you really understand just how special the wines from this region can be. Sav like you’ve never sipped it before (think wild ferments, cellar age, sub-regional styles and more) plus sparkling wines and Chardonnays to die for, along with distinctively delicious Shiraz and other distinctive reds to be sipped and savoured.

This fabulous wine tour will be hosted by two-time Digital Wine Communicator of the Year Award winner and FLWS founder, Jane Thomson. Jane will be opening doors (and wines!) to provide the inside secrets on some of New Zealand’s very best wine experiences. The group will be staying in extraordinary properties – including the St Moritz in Queenstown and the spectacularly located Raetihi Lodge in Marlborough – discovering incredible wines, meeting and spending time with world–class producers and eating and drinking the very best New Zealand has to offer. All in the fabulous company of other wine loving women.

Bookings are now open and are available for twin-share or single. For full booking details visit
