Full description
Take off and soar above the orchards before landing at a remote vantage point where you can indulge in a picnic and sip on locally produced bubbly wines. Fly within cork-popping distance of the vineyards that produce the bubbly Quartz Reef Methode Traditionelle you'll soon be drinking. Once you land at your mountain top vantage point, sit back and cast your eyes over the panoramic vistas and tussocks where local deer graze. There is something spectacularly unique about being able to enjoy a picnic overlooking the landscape from which all its contents originated. Take a few photos here as a keepsake of your special outing. Next, enjoy special picnic platters which are made up of Akaroa Salmon and Venison from the Central Otago Hills (from The Fridge Butchery & Delicatessen) alongside Whitestone Cheeses crafted in Oamaru. The staples of the picnics are accompanied by decadent chutneys and relish from Gertz Larder that you’ll only find in Central Otago. Last but not least, treat your sweet tooth to some of Zoe’s Forage & Gold honey. After you’ve tantalized your taste buds, wash it down with a drop of Central Otago’s finest Methode Traditionelle from Quartz Reef Winery or an ice-cold bottle of Benjer Juice freshly bottled from Central Otago fruit.
