Wellington Food Experience
Brimming with vibrant markets and colorful eateries, Wellington has earned its reputation as the epicenter of New Zealand's culinary scene. From craft beer to coffee and artisan chocolate, there is no better way to get to know a city's culinary scene than to taste it. Explore a boutique coffee roaster and stylish cafƩ, a renowned specialist in fresh produce, a unique contemporary chocolatier and a microbrewery led by passionate, local "foodies" eager to share their knowledge and introduce the wonders of Wellington, named "the coolest little capital in the world" by Lonely Planet.

What you will see along the way:

Wellington boasts a wealth of downtown sites, such as the impressive 112-year-old Wellington Town Hall, the innovative City Gallery, and famed Cuba Street, noted for its eclectic mix of establishments and a Registered Historic Area. Gaze out the window on your short city drive and take in the vibrant local culture and cafƩ scene.

Tastings:

Learn about the process of making craft beer and much more on a guided tour of the facility. Then, proceed to the taproom, where you can view the brewing process in action and participate in a structured sampling of a variety of brews. Your day also includes a visit to the first all organic brewery bar, coffee roastery and restaurant. Here, an ever-changing menu will be paired with some small-batch, brewed-on-site beers (wine or cider can be substituted). The menu features gluten free and vegetarian options; please advise if required when booking. Conclude with sweet treats from a gourmet chocolatier.
