What you should know about Wine, Art and Wilderness
With vast experience in nature conservation and the wine industry, Noel focuses on interpretation and interactive guided experiences, opening doors to introduce the wine art personalities of Nelson and Marlborough, ensuring visitor expectations are always exceeded. I have always lived in the Nelson area with extensive work and recreational experience in the Abel Tasman National Park as a tourist boat skipper and guide as well as Nelson Lakes National Park where I was a staff member. I have always had a keen interest in the outdoors with the three local national parks being our playground. My recreational interests include boating, fishing, hunting, scuba diving, horse riding, snow skiing and hiking to mention a few. With experience in Travel and Hospitality I have recently moved back to New Zealand with my young family after spending the last year living and traveling abroad.
I've always had a passion to see the world and meet different cultures so it was great to teach our children to be global citizens. I'm a born and bred South Islander and love the Nelson and Tasman region for its National Parks, beaches, wine and locally grown culinary delights. The tour vehicles are a Mercedes Benz Viano or Mercedes Sprinter vehicles that will guarantee comfort and safety and one of the first vehicles to exceed the Euro Environmental standards respectively. Nelson has the largest fishing port in New Zealand and as such, is renowned for its seafood.
Shellfish such as scallops and mussels are caught in Tasman Bay and fresh fish caught further afield comes in daily off the boats. Nelson’s climate makes it an ideal location for vineyards, orchards and olive plantations. This creates an abundance of good, fresh food, as well as a thriving local industry in gourmet products, taking advantage of the produce grown in this fruit bowl of New Zealand. Food and drinks will be provided throughout the day on all tours, sampling the best of the Nelson Marlborough region and season.
Because each tour group is small, I can give you a lasting experience that is unique to you. Your safety on a Wine Art and Wilderness day trip is fully assured everything about your day has been designed to guarantee you peace of mind. I am fully licensed to carry passengers and to operate within New Zealand's National Parks. Mission Statement Wine Art and Wilderness seeks to educate, engage inspire visitors on journeys of exploration with authentic interpretation in our unique natural environment
