About the club


The sleepy region of Upper Moutere spans the hills and heart of New Zealand’s wine country. Picturesque villages perch above the glistening Tasman Bay, and rich pastures sweep into the distance. Explore the varied landscape on foot or on horseback. Take to the sea in a kayak. Or simply while away the day with a bottle of locally produced wine.

A region of rolling hills and perpetual sunshine. 

Things to do


With its warm climate and mineral soil, Upper Moutere is a melting pot of sumptuous produce. Sample sheep’s milk cheese with handmade chutney, picnic on sweet strawberries or visit a family-run olive grove to taste locally pressed oil. From artisanal dishes to fine dining, you’ll discover a cornucopia of gastronomic delights in Upper Moutere.


Upper Moutere is home to some of the country’s finest vineyards. Heritage and modernity meet to create a unique product born from the landscape. Take a tour through endless vines and immerse yourself in the winemaking traditions of the region’s producers. Finish the day in New Zealand’s oldest pub with a glass of red, craft ale or vintage cider.


Just off the coast and easily accessible from the mainland lies the popular Rabbit Island. Explore the pine-covered slopes on a mountain bike or relax on the wide sandy beaches. Find a secluded shady spot for a picnic before returning to Nelson for cocktails overlooking the bay.

Wander the trails of the Icon Sculpture Park to discover extraordinary spaces and exceptional installations.
