Queenstown wine tours

Grant Taylor - Valli Wine Tour with Appellation CentralThe Central Otago wine region spreads from the outskirts of Queenstown’s Wakatipu Basin through picturesque valleys and dramatic gorges to the rolling vine-clad foothills of Bannockburn and beyond. Our tours take you from Queenstown to the Gibbston Valley and through to Bannockburn and Cromwell, the heart of the Central Otago wine country.

As we travel with small groups, the selection of vineyards available to us grows by the year and we will choose those appropriate for the tour each day. All our tours make the most of our fifteen years of experience operating in Central Otago, and our close working relationship with the vineyards. We also offer a range of private wine tours for individuals, groups and wine clubs.
