Queenstown Helicopter Wine Tour

By Altitude Wine Tours
About
Fly to the vines with Altitude Tours on a Helicopter Wine Tour. Start your day being met by the helicopter company at your Queenstown accommodation and enjoy a scenic helicopter flight giving you aerial views of the stunning vines and famous wine-growing region, before landing on a mountaintop for a glass of bubbles (sparkling wine). Your helicopter will land at your first cellar door where you will meet your guide and be hosted across four separate tasting experiences, including a tour of the Gibbston Valley Winery wine cave. Throughout the day you will be entertained with local winemaking facts and stories, and you also have the option of indulging in a delicious lunch at a local winery (additional cost ordered on the day). This helicopter wine tour is all about taking a regular wine-tasting journey to new heights and pairing good wine and good people, tasting the best wines produced in New Zealand, including our world-famous Pinot Noir.

        Ok not great..
        I missed some of the tour and was able to attend the third spot. The wine was not good, gave me a huge headache. Others also complained. And the quantity of food (anti pasta) was too little. If you want to cancel needs to be within 48 hours which is annoying, should be 24 hours Not really worth the price, my friends suggest other places

        A great tour made even better by our guide
        Four wineries, 18 tastings, great wines and good company, what more could you ask from just 4 hours in the Gibbston Valley? How about a tour guide who knows how to help people relax and get to know each other? As we drove from Queenstown, Danny, our guide, expertly directed our getting to know our fellow travellers with his questions and comments. Which set the tone for a friendly atmosphere and lots of laughter as the day wore on. It was the best time I can remember having on a wine tour.

        Must-do for wine enthusiasts!!
        Altitude's wine tour was truly exceptional! We visited four outstanding vineyards in Central Otago, each offering well-balanced and delicious wines. Our guide, Alana, was incredibly knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the day. Learning about the wine history of the region, as well as interesting tidbits about Queenstown and New Zealand in general, added an extra layer of enjoyment to the experience. From the exquisite Pinot Noirs to the elegant Rieslings and refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, the quality of the wines was outstanding. If you're a serious wine enthusiast, this tour is a must-do! And definitely request Alana as your guide – she's amazing!

        A relaxing late afternoon of wine / or beer tasting.
        What a fun outing! The guide/ driver was exceptional - learned a good deal about the wine in the region and felt quite at ease with all the other clients. - We even sang along to the music chosen by one of the guests as we drove between tastings. Visited three locations, everyone seemed to enjoy their time- happy to walk away with a lovely parting gift. - Cheers!

        Wonderful wines
        Great experience. Visited 4 wineries with lunch at the second one (not included, but probably a good idea) 😀 18 samples, with a god variety, though obviously limited to the wines of the area. Alia was helpful and friendly.
