We pick you up at 9.30am and head to the historic township of Petone at the northern end of Wellington harbour. Our first stop is to Ripe, a specialty coffee roastery on the Petone foreshore where you learn about it's fascinating history and the timeline of the coffee from shrub to your cup. You take part in a coffee roast then get to savour the product in a tasting session.
Next stop is Zany Zeus diary and cheese factory where you will sample a range of cheese, yogurts and organic icecreams. This is followed by a visit to The Chocolate Story, the resident chocolatier for a tasting and chocolate making lesson.
Lunch is next at either Logan Brown restaurant (Wednesday to Saturday) or La Bella Italia (Sunday to Tuesday). Logan Brown is arguably Wellington's top restaurant and they provide a local food and wine or craft beer match, including their signature Paua (Abalone) dish. La Bella is our own version of Parma in Petone. Here you taste a range of cured meats served with pizza bread and a glass of Italian wine.
After lunch we head out east around the coastline to Parrot Dog Brewery located in the picturesque seaside suburb of Lyall Bay. Here you will sample their range of Award winning craft beers and pick up some tips from the experts.
