This is a wonderful wine tour through the most beautiful countryside. Very generous with wine tastings. All four wineries were first class but all differed from each other. Lunch was basically a large tasting plate between three to four people. Definitely a must.
Nice sized tour group lead by a very knowledgeable and personable guide, David. Great wines representing boutique and larger vineyards. The lunch at Carrick was delicious and the view and grounds lovely!
Love it. Great guide and great experience. Can't recommend it enough
We had a simply fantastic experience on this tour! Our guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and the wineries we traveled to served some excellent wines. I highly recommend doing this tour when you're in Queenstown!
A great way to sample this region's wines. We visited four wineries and tasted a variety of their wines, mostly Pinot Noir but also some white wines. In one of the wineries we had a nice lunch featuring local produce. The guide was knowledgeable and quite friendly. Highly recommended.
IT WAS GREAT!!!
Penny our driver pick some of the best vineyards for us to visit. All of the wines were of New Zealands best!
The last vineyard our tour was the BEST. Our host and his wines were great and he was a very good spokesperson. I never had a Sov Blanc before. Very interesting wine it was.
Wonderful. Wines were excellent, tour guide was just great, lots of info regarding where we were, where we were going to.
Excellent afternoon visiting 4 wineries - scenery of the way was beautiful too. All wineries were quite different known for their reislings and pinot noirs. Excellent Value

Our host was magnificent and informative. The day was full of information and the wineries were great. Thanks
This wine tour was amazing, even in winter. Beautiful region, gorgeous flavours, great wine!
Exellent tour, guide/driver was very knowledgable. A good range of wine and wineries. Food provided for lunch was great.
This was a good tour. Private wine tasting was helpful and informative. Lunch was very good and our driver/leader was pleasant and helpful.
Really enjoyed the relaxed pace of the tour. The winery with the cheese plate in the morning was particularly welcome to manage to wine intake at that time of the morning.
Our guide provided a nice manner, plenty of information, not over the top, obviously had good understanding of the region and the wine industry.
Another couple cancelled and the tour ended up with just the two of us and the tour guide. He was a fantastic guide, giving us both the history of the region as well as all of the wineries that we visited and passed by. We chose the lunch tour and received an amazing selection of various meats, cheeses, and other delicious food to make the day a wonderful tour overall.
The wine touring of Central Otago was amazing! My wife and I had a great time sampling the many flavours of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris in the area and the other guests on the tour were a great group to talk with. Everyone from the driver to the staff in the wineries were very accommodating and knew their stuff when it came to both wine making and the history of the area. I was very glad I made the effort to take this trip nd would definitely do it again when I return.
It was a great full day of wine exploration. Almost all the wines and cheeses that we had were superb. I was cracking my brains on which to bring home. So many of them. However, some parts of the journey seems a little rush. No much time to decide on what wines we should get, or just have a few more pictures taken. Other than that, it was a perfect day out.
