Upper Moutere – a small village outside Nelson in New Zealand’s South Island – home to a bunch of creative and productive people.
They make glorious wine, stunning cheeses from both sheep and cows milk. They grow gourmet mushrooms, crush rich olives for fresh and peppery olive oil. Try artisan’s sausages, salami and smoked duck. Discover the unique flavour of black garlic. The Artisans include famous ceramic artists, sculptors, wood workers and a jeweller. The Moutere Inn is the oldest pub in New Zealand and pours 13 artisan beers and serves great meals. Handmade baskets from local supplejack and willow and fields of gorgeous Paeonies complete the picture.
The next Moutere Artisans Open Day is Sunday 28 April 2024 from 10am till 4pm. See you then!
