Nelson New Zealand, Climate
January and February are the warmest months of the year and July is generally the coldest.
Even in winter we are blessed with many clear sunny days and so visitors can generally enjoy outdoor activities in all four seasons.
Snow is rare on the lowlands but falls are common in the mountains in July and August. Our average annual rainfall is 986mm.
Nelson’s climate is ideal for the production of world class wine, long warm summers and cool autumn nights produce wines with intense fruit flavours, good acid balance and weight.
