    Discover and savour our world-class Central Otago wines on the Valley of the Vines Lunch Tour exclusively for adults only! Join us as we transport wine-lovers to Gibbston, also known as the ‘Valley of the Vines’.

Relax and unwind as you visit three renowned vineyards and wineries where you will sniff, swirl and savour over 16 wines including our famed Pinot Noir and other varietals. Immerse your senses in New Zealand’s largest wine cave, and beyond the grape enjoy a seasonal shared lunch platter at a winery restaurant. Our Valley of the Vines Lunch Tour has been created exclusively for adults only to ensure that the rest of the group experiences an unforgettable day.

    Our group of 8 had an excellent time visiting the three wineries. The hosts at each winery were very informative and we had lots of tastings! The food provided was good however it was more cheese, meats and crackers rather than a proper lunch. We had an excellent time thanks
