Owner description: Making wine personal.... Join Queenstown's original wine tour. Enjoy spectacular scenery, fascinating local history and more importantly taste some great wines,in particular our Pinot Noir. Tours depart daily from Queenstown all year round. Our guides have local knowledge and a great relationship with vineyard personal.Our tours are relaxed, personalised and visit a selection of boutique wineries. We keep our tours small and travelling time to a minimum, so there is plenty of time for you to sample fine wine, food and local cheeses whilst interacting with winery personnel. For those who prefer the exclusivity of a private guide and vehicle, we offer full and half day tours exploring the wine areas of Gibbston Valley and Bannockburn. Our Wine Tours can be combined with a Jet Boat ride, Helicopter flight or the ultimate relaxation package, try our spa and wine experience. We offer complimentary pick up and drop off from accommodation or central Queenstown

We thought the 4 winery, 5 hour tour would be enough, and we were right. Perfect combo at the right price. We were lucky to have Lance as our guide and he's just right as well. Great combo of local wine knowledge, easy going, remembers names, drives a very nice new bus, loves his job. The 4 wineries are evenly balanced so you get a great cross section of what there is to offer in the valleys. Just right. The oenologues, viticoles and guides were all more than just right. A great day out!

I know a little about wine, but this still proved informative. First & last vinery's visited were best; lunch at Gibbstons good value. Be prepared to buy wine / cheese presents for family and friends.

Did some research ahead of time (as a local) and this is one of the best priced tours around Queenstown but don't know what higher priced tours would offer that this does not. Lance was exceptionally well informed, we got a brand new Mercedes van for the tour. Vineyards all had a different feel and tastings were truly diverse and some $60 a bottle tastings didn't go amiss. Did an awesome job. Friendly and laid back. Came away with a delicious brut for Christmas morning.

We had a great time on the Original Wine Tour & what really made it awesome was our guide Phil, he chose some really varied wineries and we enjoyed the authentic experiences & people. Graham Thornes stories from Remarkables Winery were definitely something we won't forget! I think Waitiri Creek was definitely a favorite though.
I think this tour is a must do when you're in Queenstown!

This tour is probably one of the best I've ever done. Lance was such a great tour guide and managed to fit a lot into our time at the wineries without rushing anything. The wine cave in particular was a fantastic experience and the wines were so nice we have a couple to take home!
