Highly recommend Julie and the funny french car if you're looking at a wine tour! We visited vineyards you just wouldn't get to at this time without Julie's local knowledge and contacts. Great to visit the smaller boutique wineries and we were privileged to get to more than 3 in half a day! Best wine tour I've done (and I have done a few;)

Lucky to spend the afternoon in the back seat of a citron, chauffeured
by Julie as we ventured to cellar doors in the region. Learnt heaps, sampled and enjoyed. Central reisling grew on me....and the tannacrief tawny port from Cromwell...well...watch that space. Super day out. Thankyou

We had a fun afternoon with Julie as she took us to a number of wineries around the Wanaka/Cromwell area. She picked us up from right where we were staying and straight away we were having fun. Julie kept us well entertained with knowledge, stories and information about the area. We visited 3 wineries, the second of which we had a lovely cheese platter to go with our wine tasting.
The wineries were more boutique type places, which gave us a chance to chat with the owners at each place (all of whom were lovely and cheerful people). This was really a great afternoon and I can happily recommend it to others.
Even as someone who is not a big wine drinker this was a lot of fun!

Had a blast riding with Julie in her Citroen as we explored area wineries. She took us on a half day trek to some of the areas more boutique operations. We had some very nice wines and great discussions with the owners - and, of course, picked up some bottles to bring with us as we traveled.

Julie has a great knowledge of the local region and winemaking in general. Her tour is punctuated with local history of the region. Coming from years of wine tasting in California, this is definitely a notch up! Such a fun way to experience the local region. Would highly recommend.
