The vineyard you can see is Chard Farm, which has two of my favourite pinot noirs -- the Tiger and the Viper -- which I tasted very shortly after this picture was taken. No, I wasn't driving.
Lord of the Rings geeks like me may recognise this location as the foot of the Argonath, which we see in The Fellowship of the Ring as the Fellowship paddles past after leaving Lothlorien.
Scenery, LOTR geekery and wine. The perfect NZ trifecta.
