5. Queenstown: Wine Tasting Tour
Your wine guide will collect you near your Queenstown accommodation around 10am in a premium Mercedes vehicle, before traveling 30 minutes out to the spectacular Gibbston wine region. Throughout the day you will visit four tasting locations, tasting over 18 local wines. Our first location includes a tour and tasting at New Zealand’s famous Gibbston Valley underground wine cave. Here you will visit the vines before exploring their incredible wine cave and tasting their world-famous wines. From here we move on to Kinross, a fantastic tasting location that showcases wines from five different wine-makers, their cellar-door hosts will entertain and educate you on the wide history of the region. It is at Kinross where we allow time for lunch, and you can order off their varied delicious menu (lunch is paid for separately on the day). After lunch, visit the beautiful tasting room at Mt Rosa Wines. Mt Rosa is an owner-operator cellar door, with single-label wines that are unique and hard to source around NZ and the world. The fourth location is The Church Tasting Room, a picturesque location, in a small refurbished church sitting on large sweeping grounds and the tasting room for Mt Edward Wines. At the end of the tour you can be dropped back near your accommodation around 4pm, or choose to go into Queenstown to enjoy your afternoon/evening. Travel in style with transfers in a premium Mercedes van, enjoy learning how to taste wine through onboard videos and make use of our complimentary WiFi and Spotify playlists.
