Wine Tour by Bike!
Here are some routes we've put together - each is just under 30km and starts/end in Wellington. The terrain is a mix or road and gravel trail/path so lets just say that skinny tires work less well here :)

Wineries/Farms you'll pass:
Hubbs Creek, Karlo Estates, Sugarbush, Domaine Darius, The Old Third, Broken Stone, Closson Chase, The Lavender Farm, Lacey Estates, Hinterland, Trail Estate Winery
Mix of trail and gravel/paved road; out of Wellington via smooth trail, narrows to double-track; back to Wellington via Highway 33
Wineries you'll pass:
Trail Estate Winery, Stanners, Harwood, Hillier Creek, Traynor's, Norm Hardie, Casa Dea, Rosehall Run, Sandbanks, Kient-he
