The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got a real taste of New Zealand on Sunday with a tour of a local winery.. On the seventh day of their tour of New Zealand, the British royals were flown to Queenstown, where they were whisked off to Amisfield Winery for a wine and cheese tasting. William and Kate were given a brief overview of the area's wine history. And more than 20 local winemakers served samples of the best local brew. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRINCE WILLIAM SAYING BEFORE SIPPING WINE: "We probably should stop talking and start drinking" Suggestions Kate might be pregnant are soon dispelled, after she indulged in a tipple. It served as some Dutch courage, steeling them for what was to come - a ride on the Shotover Jet. During the 25-minute river trip, the Cambridges had some high speed thrills, as they blasted by rocky outcrops and boulders, speeding through the narrow canyons.
