Welcome to Gourmet Journeys

Nau mai, haere mai ki Aotearoa

Gourmet Journeys is very proud to be New Zealand's only dedicated food and wine specialist inbound tourism operator.


To truly experience the remarkable Pacific Rim influences and fusions of the foods and world renown wines of Aotearoa, travellers need to venture behind the extraordinary scenery and beyond the well worn, too oft trod tourist routes.

Instead, we invite you to join one of our custom made experiences, exploring the country’s sense of place, meeting its local peoples and sampling this deliciously unique destination first hand.


He aha te mea nui o te ao (What is the most important thing in the world?)
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata (It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.)

- Maori proverb


Terroir is more than just soil and climate. The third factor is the people.
