Tailored Zest Tours

Let Zest create a unique culinary experience for you. Our strength is retaining our trademark personal touch regardless of numbers involved. Working from some personalised combination of food, wine and coffee, we will tailor a custom tour for 2 or more guests, often up to 100, and create a memorable event with fun, atmosphere and great food and wine.

  • Special interest groups
  • A group of friends celebrating together
  • Onboard cruise ship groups
  • Corporate and team building activities
  • Incentive rewards programmes
  • Special client or international visitor hospitality

Give us some guidelines on likely numbers, available time and budget and we'll come up with something fun and mouth-watering. Best of all, we organise everything so you don't have to.

  • For a group of wine buffs, imagine the delight in working with a winemaker to create your very own wine, blended to suit your palate exclusively
  • International visitors love the opportunity to relax in a home environment, maybe for a genuine New Zealand country tea with scones and jam
  • Renowned caterer and cookbook author Ruth Pretty's beautiful home and garden in rural Te Horo is a perfect place for a stylish lunch, or cooking class

It was a very successfully day in the Wairarapa and our guests enjoyed the day immensely. The programme you put together was interesting and allowed our guests to see and enjoy the best of what Wairarapa has to offer. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all those involved - their hospitality and genuine interest in our guests went a long way towards the success of the day.
