Comments: “Thanks!” 5 of 5 stars

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!

A must do whilst in Queenstown” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 27 December 2012 NEW

We decided to do this as a last minute decision and I am really glad we did!

I am a big wine fan my partner not so much but he now has a better understanding of wine and has even said he would share a bottle of New Zealand wine with me.

We were picked up by Lance (owner) from our accommodation and whilst on the way to the first of four wineries (all boutique)  he explained our itinerary for the day (we were a tour of 10).

first stop winery was Gibbston Valley, you could opt to have lunch here - we decided against it and got an extra glass of wine and headed for the cheesery where we shared a cheeseboard selected to go with our wine (would recommend this!).  before lunch though we had our tasting of four wines in the wine cave - a great experience and the overwhelming smell of wine as you enter the cave is fantastic. 

after lunch sew headed to Peregrine wines, one of the employees was getting married there on the day we were there s the whole place was deck out perfectly, we tasted a further 4/5 wines here, before moving intone to Waitiri creek (my favourite) where the tastings take place in as old church, we were greeted by Jason (and the marvellous smells of Christmas cakes being baked!) the managers who spent a long time explaining the 5 wines to us and answering our questions we the went onto our final tasting at Amisfield winery, where the sommelier took us to the wine cellar for a further five tastings, we got to try some sparkling wine here which was different to the other places.

We were then back on the bus for journeys back to Queenstown, we received a voucher for seem money off some Amisfield wine in one of the central Queenstown restaurants which we returned to a few days later to sample.

All in all a great half day out accompanied by commentary by Lance along the way who is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about good wine!
Thanks for a great day out!

My partner and I booked a Queenstown Wine Trail tour online to include as an activity on our ski holiday. However, the tour itself is the experience we tell our friends about most. We took the tour in the winter and were able to enjoy wines from 4 local producers. The wine was extraordinary, so much so that we purchased quite a few bottles, and our wine guide Lance made the tour extremely memorable. He was knowledgeable, and funny. If you have the time, this is a Queenstown experience not to be missed.
