Food & Wine Trail

Explore the South Canterbury Food & Wine trail - capture the spirit of the region by tasting the flavours of this rich and fertile land and the personalities behind them.

Known for its patchwork plains, rolling hill country, braided rivers and spectacular mountain lakes, South Canterbury is often referred to as “the food bowl” of the South Island. Throughout the region, in towns and small rural communities, a new tradition of South Canterbury food and wine production is emerging… a taste all of our own that reflects our fresh natural environment and artisan food producers creating local flavours with love.

Explore the South Canterbury Food & Wine Trail – wineries and New Zealand wine, Farmers Markets, locally grown food & produce, rural accommodation and restaurant & cafe dining all await.
