Taste Central Otago wine and cuisine on a small-group tour of the region’s boutique vineyards. Group size is limited to 12 wine lovers to ensure personal service as you sip your way through four Central Otago wineries, pausing for a gourmet lunch in a vineyard. Visiting smaller vintners helps you get a feel for what makes Central Otago wines distinctive, from chardonnay to pinot gris and Riesling.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Queenstown, then travel into the rolling hills and valleys of Central Otago in a climate-controlled vehicle. As you make your way to the first vineyard, learn how Central Otago has become a premier cool-climate wine region, with high-quality pinot noir, Riesling, pinot gris, chardonnay, and more.

The tour itinerary varies to keep up with Central Otago’s freshest wines, but generally includes two vineyards in Gibbston and two others in either the historic gold mining town of Bannockburn or in the Cromwell area.

At each destination, sample locally produced wines, then pause for a gourmet lunch platter served at a vineyard. Following your four vineyard visits, this tour concludes with return transfer to Queenstown and drop-off at the original departure point.
