Queenstown & Central Otago Wine Tour – Full Day

Experience the best of Central Otago with our full day wine tasting adventure through the stunning Gibbston Valley and Bannockburn regions, renowned for their Pinot Noir.

Your personal guide will transport you through picturesque Kawarau Gorge in the comfort of our Land Rover Discovery or Mercedes van to Bannockburn, the heart of the Central Otago wine region.

Immerse your senses in a wine tasting at one of Bannockburn’s top wineries, Mt Difficulty, perched high on the famed Felton Road. Choose to indulge at their Winery Restaurant for lunch and savour their locally-sourced menu while enjoying dramatic views overlooking Lake Dunstan and the Cromwell basin.

We then venture into the Gibbston Valley wine region, the  ‘Valley of the Vines’ nestled between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge. Here we delight in more world-class Pinot Noir at some of the best wineries and cellar doors in the region.

Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests, tastes and abilities. Get in touch to customise your tour and ensure your Queenstown adventure is unforgettable.
