What to Expect

This boutique wine tour is an unforgettable half-day exploration of Central Otago's boutique vineyards with lunch included.

 

Discover world-class wines on this fun and interactive wine tour, offering a great taste of Central Otago's wine, history, sights and cuisine. The Central Otago wine region spreads from the outskirts of Queenstown's Wakatipu Basin through picturesque valleys and dramatic gorges to the rolling vine-clad foothills of Bannockburn and beyond.

 

The region itself is broken into six wine sub-regions, and this tour visits three of them, each with its own distinctive soils, elevations and characteristics, all producing excellent aromatic and burgundy wine types.

 

Enjoy tastings from four premium vineyards over the sub-regions of Gibbston and the lesser-known Cromwell and Bannockburn basin. The vineyards you might visit change daily, but specific vineyards can be requested. Tours may include Mt Difficulty, Chard Farm, Amisfield and Gibbston Valley Winery.

 

Stop in for lunch at a vineyard restaurant and take a tour around the vineyard, barrel hall and see the wine-making facilities. Savour a delightful platter-style lunch made with locally sourced produce and accompanied by a flight of wines.

 

Throughout the day, you'll travel onboard a luxury Mercedes-Benz minivan while your specialist Wine Guide provides a full commentary on the wine, sights and early history, ensuring an entertaining drive with plenty of photo opportunities along the way.

 

Where we Visit:

  • 3 Central Otago wine regions, including Gibbston, Cromwell & Bannockburn
  • 4 different wineries, which will vary but may include Mt Difficulty, Chard Farm, Amisfield or Gibbston Valley Winery
  • Old Cromwell Town (weather permitting)
