About queenstown Wine TRAIL


Queenstown Wine Trail has been operating since 1992 and is privately owned by Lance Benseman and Heather McDonald.

As the Central Otago wine region has grown, the range and options of wine tours with Queenstown Wine Trail has developed. Lance and Heather have built strong committed partnerships with the Queenstown and Central Otago vineyards in the last two decades. They are constantly modifying and developing their product to satisfy client demand and incorporate appropriate new vineyards as they come on line.

Queenstown Wine Trail is the leading wine tour operator in Queenstown and has developed wine itineraries ranging from small group tours and wine combination tours to highly personalised private wine tours. In addition to scheduled wine tours Queenstown Wine Trail also caters for conferences, incentives and group itineraries.
