MEET MELISA

I love wine, vineyards and luxury travel.

For fourteen years, I was a commercial litigator working in private practice in Auckland, and then London, working long hours, dreaming of escaping to a vista of vines.

I decided to relocate to New Zealand’s largest wine region, Marlborough.  I spent a year there as a marketing manager for a large winery and as the Marlborough correspondent for Sip NZ Wine, a wine and lifestyle blog: www.sipnzwine.com.

Then I spent a year in Hawke’s Bay, the second largest wine region and the fruit bowl of the North Island.  I was the Executive Officer for Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers’ Association and I ran Hawke’s Bay Wine.  I was the point of contact for all the wineries and growers in Hawke’s Bay.

In Marlborough and in Hawke’s Bay, I know all the best cellar doors and the best wineries.  I have visited the luxury lodges and met the adventure tour operators and wine tour operators; I have hosted international trade and media; run large-scale industry events, requiring huge attention to detail and coordination of staff; and prepared unique itineraries for international visitors, and I am uniquely placed to put together an outstanding, personalised package just for you, showcasing the very best on offer.

I have also travelled widely.  From a young age, my parents took us all over New Zealand and I travelled extensively whilst living overseas, using London as a base.

I’ve always had a preference for high end luxury travel (don’t we all?!) and experiences that blow your mind – whether it’s the canals of Venice, sailing around Croatia, or taking a helicopter ride over the beautiful Marlborough Sounds on a huge, blue sky day.

I’m now based in Auckland again. I indulge my passion for New Zealand and luxury wine tourism, creating bespoke packages for other people with busy lives, showcasing the very best New Zealand has to offer.

I think the secret to organising a great escape is to be super organised, with meticulous attention to detail. You need to research your destination thoroughly, to be passionate about what you do, to be committed to going above and beyond for your customers, and to put together a package you’d love yourself.

I look forward to creating your dream luxury escape.
