Fabulous full day wine tour!
This was our second trip with Wanaka Wine Tours & John was our guide both times. The vineyards we visited (6 on a full day’s tour) were different & each has a unique vibe. John was very knowledgeable & easy company which made the day good fun. A lunch platter was included in the price. Central Otago is absolutely stunning & this is a wonderful way to spend a day. Being picked up, chauffeured to fabulous vineyards & tasting such glorious wine - what more can you want! Would highly recommend.

Good half day wine Tour with an entertaining guide
Feb 2020
Great little wine tour - we were 2 of 6 and visited the following wineries - Aitkins Folly, Scott Base (our favourite), Akarua, Domaine Road. We had a shared platter at Scottbase and sampled the Emperor Methode Traditionelle Sparkling wine. Both were delicious and the staff were excellent and friendly. Arrived at Akarua about 20 mins before closure and the sommelier was clearly keen to see us off. Wine servings for tasting were barely sufficient to actually taste the wines - a big disappointment from a "name" brand. Got to Domaine Road later and the sommelier (and wines) couldn't have been nicer!

If you want a wine tasting trip take this one.
A really enjoyable afternoon. We were picked up from our hotel on time by our guide Toni. There was only 1 other couple on the minibus with us so we were soon all talking.Toni provided full and interesting information throughout the trip and the four vineyards we visited were well selected and gave us an intimate wine tasting experience. At our second stop we were also provided with a cold but delicious small meal to accompany the wines. By the end of the 4th vineyard we were very mellow and pleased that Toni was doing the driving. The best wine tasting trip we have been on. Thoroughly recommended.

Superb wine tasting tour with Greg
Superb wine tasting afternoon with Greg visiting four vineyards and an excellent lunch platter at Scott Base. Greg was brilliant, ensured everyone enjoyed themselves, and what he didn’t know wasn’t worth knowing. Great fun and learnt lots. Highly recommend this trip and Greg as a guide.

Brilliant tour in a beautiful landscape
The guide was brilliant - gentle, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The wineries were wonderful, with great hosts and lovely food too. A really well considered tour that was well worth it. Small group, relaxed. Pretty perfect.

October wine tour
Oct 2019
We had a wonderful afternoon with John, our host and driver. He made personal introductions at each winery, gave us some “insider” info, and carefully watched the time so we could learn about the wine and chat with the people there. During the drive he shared his love of the area, including some swell local stories and great ideas for eating while in Wanaka! I’m sure we would not have taken the time to find “Bra-drona” if it weren’t for him. The wine tour was our favorite tour on the South Island!

Wonderful Wines
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had an amazing day out with the owner of this company who was our guide for the day. He was incredibly knowledgeable but yet it was informal and fun. The vineyards we went to we’re all quite different and the lunch we enjoyed at Arch Angel was superb.
We would recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in wine and food as we would rate it the best tour we’ve ever done both in NZ and overseas.
Thanks so much for the awesome day.

Informative and fun!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We were picked up promptly from our accommodation by our guide Heidi and were surprised that we were the only 2 on the tour. So started a very pleasant, friendly and informative 4 1/2 hours. During the tour, Heidi not only spoke of the wines of Central Otago, but also about the landscape and terroir. Our first stop was Aitken's Folly (Wanaka) where the owner gave us a short history of how the vineyard came to be, it's grape varieties and operation. Our next stop was the Wooing Tree (Cromwell) where we enjoyed a very substantial and tasty lunch, paired with what seemed many tastings of differing wine varieties. Next stop was Domain Road (Bannockburn) where again, we were well informed by the host who also gave certain recommendations on some of the Pinot's available and she was definitely correct. We were wowed by the glorious outlook from inside and out of the tasting room Our last stop was Scott Base Vineyard (Cromwell) where again, we were warmly greeted. At this stage, it was getting close to closing time, but there was no rush for us to leave. All in all a fabulous, informative and fun day, much more than we were expecting.

Boutique Wine Tour - what a day!!
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had a fantastic afternoon touring four winerys with Greg, our very knowledgable host/driver. From the first vineyard (Aitken's Folley), he noticed that my husband's and my wine tastes are very different, and so made a point of changing the day's plan accordingly. We hand lunch and a few more tastings at The Wooing Tree, mosied on over to Domain Road (with it's stunning vista), then finished the day with a leisurely couple of hours at Scott Base. The whole experience was relaxed, and we got the chance to chat to people who really love their products. We tasted some exceptional wines, bought a few bottles, and had an overall wonderful time. Greg was fantastic - the right balance of friendly but not intrusive. He let us taste the wine, absorb our surroundings, then have a chat. Great guy! Thoroughly recommend doing the Boutique Wine Tour via Wanaka Wine Tours. You get to try some fab drops, see a wonderful slice of the country, and you don't have to drive :)

Informative and fun
We did a private version of the Boutique Wine Tour, a half day covering 4 wineries in Cromwell area and in Wanaka. An interesting mix of small boutique wineries and a larger, more commercial one (which we requested). We learnt a lot from the wineries and also from our guide, John. Very professionally run, no hesitation in recommending this trip.
