Wine Sampler Tour
From $110.60
Taste your way through Gibbston Valley wines on a wine tour from Queenstown that includes tastings at three or four wineries. Sampling a minimum of 18 Gibbston Valley wines ensures you a great overview of local flavors, and round-trip transport from central Queenstown means you can enjoy each tasting without worrying about driving at the end of the day.
What to Expect
Kick the day off in style with Altitude Tours. One of our fun and knowledgable guides will pick you up in one of our luxury vehicles from outside your accommodation or central Queenstown (between 10 and 10.30am depending on location).

Enjoy a scenic journey along the edge of Lake Wakatipu, over the Shotover River, past Lake Hayes and out to the Gibbston Region where we stop out our first location- Gibbston Valley Winery.

Taste delicious, premium wines at 4 cellar doors after Gibbston Valley and devour an amazing lunch at one of these locations (lunch at your expense). Enjoy a quick stop and some amazing photo opportunities at a secret location before making our way back into Queenstown to return to your accommodation or central Queenstown.

What's included:
  • Wine tastings at 4 cellar doors
  • Guided tour of New Zealand's largest underground wine cave
  • Optional lunch at a premier location (at your expense)
  • Complimentary bottled water and WIFI onboard
  • Take home an Altitude branded red wine glass as a souvenir of your day
  • Complimentary Queenstown hotel transfers

Brilliant day with great guide

My husband and I, and our son who lives in QT, had a brilliant day on the Taster wine tour. The wineries were all different and gave a great contrast, with excellent talks and tastings at each. Far too much wine to drink it all!...More

Mick, our tour guide/operator, was such a treat. Funny, personable, soooooo knowledgeable....about the region and wines in general. So much so that he did the entire presentation to our group at one of the wineries we visited to assist the already-swamped winery staff. Great value...More
