Food & Wine Trail

South Canterbury Food and Wine trail showcases the best of local tastes and talent.

Lovers of locally sourced good food and beverages have a treat in store with the South Canterbury Food & Wine Trail guide.

Modelled on the successful North Canterbury Food & Wine Trail, the South Canterbury guide is part of a suite of four regional Canterbury trails, each supported by a local brochure, trail map, website and roadside signage. This exciting Canterbury-wide project is supported by the economic development agencies in each featured district; North Canterbury, Selwyn, Mid-Canterbury and South Canterbury.

The emphasis is on the best tastes South Canterbury can offer, including locally sourced natural, free range, organic and home-made produce, artisan food products and the cafes, restaurants, lodges and B & B's that take pride in featuring these products, of which Waimate has a number of operators.
