Thanks for the amazing review! I'm glad you enjoyed the history and the hosts at the wineries. We try to give you an array of wineries to show the diversity we have in a small region.

Hi, Thanks for your enquiry. We are a wine tour operator that takes people around Gibbston Valley in our van and don't have much to do with cycling hire/tours. However from experience I would say that you would need to allow at least 60-90 minutes of cycling to get from Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley and you would probably only have time to visit one winery before having to turn back to get all the way back to Arrowtown. It can be extremely cold in August and high chance of snow/rain. You definitely would not be able to include Lake Hayes. You might be best to look at companies that transport you to Gibbston and give you the bike there to ride as this would allow you time to visit more wineries. However it will still be very cold! Temperature Highs are around 8 degrees! If you change your mind and want to enjoy the wineries from the comfort of our warm vans with experienced guide - give us a call or book online. :-) Hope this helps.
