We had Gary as our tour guide and he was fantastic! I would highly recommend this wine tour - the entire experience was great and Gary was very knowledgeable. We did several wine tours around New Zealand and this was both mine and my partners favourite.

Our tour guide Debbie was awesome! Very knowledgeable abut the area not just the wines and even went off the beaten track to show us some beautiful views of the stunning region. The tour took us to 3 Vineyards none of us had been to and the Gibbston Valley cave was magical as was the Domain Road vineyard and Stonyridge estate was stunning! The lunch at Stokers in Cromwell was delicious and each course had a wine paired with it, would highly recommend this tour!
