Full-Day Small-Group Guided Wine Tour in Central Otago
From US$134.22

Enjoy a day of sampling the wines of Central Otago without worrying about getting around safely, on this guided tour. Your guide is a licensed sommelier, so you’ll learn all about different wines and wine-making from an expert. As it’s a small-group tour, you’ll receive personalized service and can alter the tour according to your needs. Explore the rich wine-growing region while you indulge and have fun with your family or friends.

What to Expect

You'll depart for your small-group wine tour at 10:30am after being picked up from your accommodation in Queenstown, Wanaka, Alexandra or Cromwell. Enjoy riding in an air-conditioned minivan and meeting your expert sommelier. 

The first stop is Bannockburn where you will taste a selection of different varietals and styles. From there, get an idea of the types of wine you will enjoy the most. The rest of the day is tailored around you.

The first half of the tour takes you through the Cromwell basin before you and your small-group stop for a delicious platter lunch (usually after three wineries). From there, head out on the second half of the tour, which takes you out to Alexandra, Central Otago's most southern wine region.

Your guide will aim to take you to six wineries on the tour, but the tour is flexible. If you get wined out and want to head back early, you can. If the tour is on schedule, then another winery stop could be added. 

You'll be dropped off at your original departure point between 4:30pm and 5:30pm.

Awesome Tour!

My partner and I had a great day out visiting some of the smaller Central Otago wineries. Natalie was a great host and taught us all sorts of new things about wine - her lunch platter was an absolute highlight!

Great tour!!!

We recently did a wine tour with Nat and had a brilliant time. Nat took us to the smaller wineries which we hadn't heard of and likely wouldn't have gone to. We had a great day and Nat was very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!!!

Fabulous personal tour of 6 wineries around Cromwell & Alexandra. Natalie is so knowledgable about the wine industry and we loved meeting the local characters with a passion for wine. Lovely lunch too. Would highly recommend.
