Gourmet Wine Tour from Queenstown
From US$184.99
Low Price Guarantee
Explore the Central Otago wine region on this small-group wine tour from Queenstown. Sample delicious New Zealand's wines at several wineries, and snack on cheeses and a gourmet lunch—all accompanied by a guide who makes it easy to find the best wineries in this renowned region. Also stop at the country’s largest wine cave, and hear about the Otago Gold Rush at the Cromwell Heritage Precinct.
What to Expect

Kick off your tour with morning pickup from your Queenstown hotel and a scenic drive into New Zealand’s Central Otago, one of the world's premier cool-climate wine regions.

Stop at Gibbston Valley Winery for a tasting inside its spacious wine cave—the largest in the country—then continue to two more wineries for tastings and a gourmet lunch paired with fine wine.

After your meal, head to Old Cromwell, the site of New Zealand's largest gold rush, which occurred in Central Otago during the 1860s. The final tasting takes place at a winery in the Cromwell or Bannockburn wine region, and comes with locally crafted cheeses.

Your full-day wine tour ends with return to your Queenstown hotel in the late afternoon.
