Full description
Enjoy a day of luxury on this exclusive helicopter winery tour in Central Otago. Start your day with a pickup from your Queenstown accommodation in a private luxury vehicle. Your first stop is the Gibbston Valley Winery for a private wine tasting, wine cave and winery tour, and light nibbles. Then, embark on a scenic helicopter flight over the Cromwell Basin with an Alpine landing. Next, visit the Scott Base Winery to taste a flight of 5 wines from the whiteboard options. You'll be traveling between the vineyards in a chauffeured, open-top Jeep.  Enjoy a 2-course à la carte lunch at Carrick Winery, with a glass of Bannockburn Estate wine. Next stop is Cloudy Bay Winery for a private wine tasting experience with a Cloudy Bay ambassador. Next is Misha's Vineyard and Tasting Room to taste 5 wines from the 12 wines on offer. Then enjoy a second scenic helicopter flight from the Cromwell Basin through the Kawarau Gorge to Gibbston. Final stop is Mt Rosa Wines, where you will take part in one last wine tasting experience.
