Queenstown Sweet Escape – Half Day Wine & Honey Tour

Taste award-winning wines from the Valley of the Vines and immerse yourself in New Zealand’s famous manuka honey industry.

Your artisan adventure begins as we pick you up and transport you to the beautiful Grant family bee farm in the comfort and safety of your own Land Rover Discovery or Mercedes van.

Indulge in a hone- tasting experience and enjoy a selection of five artisan honeys from different parts of New Zealand including local raw honey and premium manuka honey. Uncover the rich history of the region, its diverse flora, and unique geography, and get up close and personal with these industrious bees in their large see-through observation hive.

Choose one of three hands-on private experiences with a bee keeper. You can make your own beeswax candles and honey soap, spin and bottle your own honey to take home with you, or for the adventurous bee lover why not climb into your own protective bee suit and experience Being-a-Beekeeper (unavailable during colder months as the hive can’t be opened).

Your personal guide will transport you through picturesque Queenstown landscapes to Gibbston Valley wine region – known as the ‘Valley of the Vines’ — for an afternoon of relaxation and indulgence. Nestled between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge, the region’s renowned for world-class Pinot Noir and breathtaking vistas.

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