Highlights of our wine tour were Misha's where you've got to try the Riesling - sublime! Lunch at Carrick's was just what we needed. The wine tour was a great way to spend a day in Queenstown.

We had a great day touring four wineries with Gavin our guide. We also had a small group of four due to it being low season. Good selection of different winery styles from small boutique to large including my fav - Peregrine! Definitely recommend!
