For couples, smaller groups or those with larger budget, we highly recommend one of our private half or full day wine tours. Visit vineyards off the beaten track in Queenstown, Gibbston, Bannockburn and Cromwell. Enjoy the exclusivity of your own tour with your personal driver/guide. We have a selection of luxury vehicles, depending on the size of the group. The time frame for private tours is flexible and you can choose the wineries you wish to visit – with or without winery lunch.

Operating wine tours for over 25 years has allowed us to establish great relationships with wine makers and winery personnel giving clients a close-up perspective of our world class wines and local cuisine.
