    What to Expect
    Indulge in wine tastings and delicious local cheeses in the stunning Valley of the Vines, located just 30 minutes from Queenstown in Gibbston Valley. This tour transports wine-lovers to one of Central Otago’s most scenic sub-regions to visit three renowned vineyards situated between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge.

    The afternoon begins with a sensory, otherworldly experience in New Zealand’s largest wine cave, before imbibing some of the best vintages on offer in the sub-region of Gibbston Valley. Relax and unwind as you visit three renowned vineyards and wineries where you will sniff, swirl and savour over 12 wines including our famed Pinot Noir and other varietals. 

    Beyond the grape, a beautifully crafted cheese board is the perfect accompaniment to some delightful wine tastings. For serious cheese-lovers, this tour also stops at Gibbston Valley Cheese where you can indulge in sampling local artisan cheeses.

    Your guide and cellar door staff have a wealth of knowledge about the history of this region’s world-class grapes and the unique growing environment and terroir of Gibbston Valley.

    Departing from Queenstown with complimentary hotel transfers, the afternoon tour includes door-to-door travel in a  fleet of stylish European vehicles, a friendly guide, a shared cheeseboard, the wine cave tour and wine tastings, as well as a complimentary souvenir to take home and remember your day.

    This is hands down, one of the best winery tours I’ve done. Not only were the wineries unique and sensational, our tour guide Rob was epic. He kept the trip fun and informative and also has a killer sense of humour. We ended with Mt Rosa winery which was an incredible highlight.

    Hi Tianna, Wow, what an incredible review as we love offering our wine lovers more of a boutique and personalised wine tour which we are really proud of and sets us apart! It's definitely an incredible afternoon and the behind the scenes winery and wine cave tour is an amazing experience with a smaller size and back vintages to taste.
