We decided to book this tour on a rainy day and we were not disappointed!! The tour went to three wineries - Gibson Valley and two smaller boutique wineries. Lance, our guide, informed us about New Zealand’s wine history and the wineries we were visiting....More

A group of 13 of us went on the original tour with Lance. We visited 3 wineries- a combination of bigger and smaller sites. Our first stop was Gibbston Winery where we had plenty of time to relax and share a couple of cheese platters....More

Hi Everyone, I'm visiting Queenstown in mid-August with my boyfriend and we're excited to visit the Queenstown Wine Trail for the first time. We've hired bikes from Arrowtown, and have decided that doing a day self-guided is better for us rather than adhering to a tour. We are taking the bus in from Queenstown and then hiring the bikes from 11am - 3pm. Could anyone help me with my questions: 1. How far do you think we could go on the trail before we'd need to turn back? 2. Is it possible in that time to loop back around via Lake Hayes, or would we not have enough time? 3. How many wineries / what wineries would you suggest that we visit in the time that we have? 4. Has anyone done the trail during that time of year (Winter)? And should we prepare for it / wear quite warm clothes etc? Thanks so much!!

Many are small vineyard independent owners. Websites should answer your questions
