Great little wine tour - we were 2 of 6 and visited the following wineries - Aitkins Folly, Scott Base (our favourite), Akarua, Domaine Road. We had a shared platter at Scottbase and sampled the Emperor Methode Traditionelle Sparkling wine. Both were delicious and the staff were excellent and friendly. Arrived at Akarua about 20 mins before closure and the sommelier was clearly keen to see us off. Wine servings for tasting were barely sufficient to actually taste the wines - a big disappointment from a "name" brand. Got to Domaine Road later and the sommelier (and wines) couldn't have been nicer!

Hi mark4694, Thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm pleased you enjoyed the tour (mostly). Sorry to hear that the staff and the tasting amounts at Akarua, weren't up to scratch. We will be looking in to this. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Cheers!

A really enjoyable afternoon. We were picked up from our hotel on time by our guide Toni. There was only 1 other couple on the minibus with us so we were soon all talking.Toni provided full and interesting information throughout the trip and the four vineyards we visited were well selected and gave us an intimate wine tasting experience. At our second stop we were also provided with a cold but delicious small meal to accompany the wines. By the end of the 4th vineyard we were very mellow and pleased that Toni was doing the driving. The best wine tasting trip we have been on. Thoroughly recommended.

Superb wine tasting afternoon with Greg visiting four vineyards and an excellent lunch platter at Scott Base. Greg was brilliant, ensured everyone enjoyed themselves, and what he didn’t know wasn’t worth knowing. Great fun and learnt lots. Highly recommend this trip and Greg as a guide.

Myself and my partner went on the Boutiqe wine tour. We went to Four Wineries and had a great time! Heidi was a great guide, she was down to earth, kind but also very knowledgeable. The tour had Six people in total so the small intimate group made it a really comfortable and made for a great experience. The platter lunch was yum and they were able to cater to my vegetarian needs which was great. We also met some awesome people who came from all over the world. If you love wine, and would like to see more of Wanaka without having to drive yourself.. This is for you!!
