The Local Tour commences by visiting a boutique craft brewery, where the process of producing the natural beer with no preservatives or additives is explained & a range of beer is sampled. (If you're not a beer drinker, you can choose samples of cider or beer.)
We then have a light lunch at one of Taurana's top restaurants, The White House, Te Puna.
We travel North through scenic countryside for a presentation & tasting at the Wine Portfolio, now home to the prestigious, medal-winning wines of Leveret (formerly Morton) Estate & Mills Reef Winery.
