Heli Wine Tour to Mt Difficulty & Cloudy Bay Shed

Combine jaw dropping scenery with world-class Pinot Noir on this all-inclusive heli-wine experience. Be transported in style to some of Central Otago’s most exclusive wine tasting experiences while luxuriating in scenic aerial views across this renowned winegrowing region.

Your wine tasting adventure begins as your personal guide transports you to Queenstown Airport to board your privately chartered helicopter. Enjoy breathtaking views across Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu before landing at one of the region’s top wineries, Mt Difficulty, perched high on the famed Felton Road.

Sample some of the region’s best wines before enjoying lunch at its picturesque winery restaurant. Choose any main from their locally-sourced menu to enjoy with a glass of wine as you take in dramatic views across Lake Dunstan and the Cromwell basin, or indulge in a decadent cheese board with chef’s selection of local cheeses and artisan accompaniments before we continue our wine tasting adventure.

Our helicopter meets us here before we ascend over spectacular lakes, gorges and vineyards to land on the renowned Cloudy Bay winery. Sample their award-winning collection in the exclusive Lakeview Room where your personal Cloudy Bay ambassador illustrates the complexity and elegance synonymous with this celebrated winery. Learn about the trials and tribulations of winemaking in this challenging region and meet the people behind the wine as you delve into Cloudy Bay’s fascinating winemaking philosophy.

We board our private helicopter before enjoying a scenic flight back to Queenstown.

Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests, tastes and abilities. Get in touch to customise your tour and make your Queenstown adventure one to remember.
