Great Wine Tour, would recommend
Feb 2021
We enjoyed the visit to the Kinross winery. Sam gave a very professional wine tasting, giving a lot of detail about the wines. During this time, our orders were taken for lunch. The food was wonderful, again the staff very friendly but professional. Angus our driver was full of knowledge & made everyone feel included. Mt Rosa wines was hosted by the owner who made us all welcome & explained the different varieties. Finally Gibbston Valley Wines with the cave tour, which we had been to before.

Angus our tour guide was awesome, so full of energy, and very knowledgeable about the wine, would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the region. Tried a whole variety of wines, and they will adjust the tastings to your groups preferences.

Best wine experience we’ve ever had
Aug 2020 • Couples
Lance hosted my wife and I for an amazing day of wine tasting and exploring. The Queenstown Wine Trail were so easy to set the experience up with, tailoring a private tour to suit us and everything ran so smoothly. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and hit the perfect note of informing us about the wine and the different regions, while also giving us space to enjoy the time as a couple. Can’t recommend these guys enough - thanks for an incredible day!

Private Wine Tours are fun to organise as we have so many wonderful wineries to choose from in Bannockburn and Gibbston Valley sub regions. Lance knows them all so well to insure an incredible day. Thanks for joining us

Exceptional wine with a side of top quality dad jokes

This tour was amazing. Great girls day out! They were able to accommodate a large group at such short notice and provided us with an amazing driver (Lance) who definitely made our trip, great dad jokes and banter. Really appreciated the hospitality and organisation put on by the tour group company. The wines and food was top quality and would definitely recommend to Queenstown travelers!

Highlight of our trip
Jun 2020
My family did a wine tour visiting three wineries which was hosted by Angus. We had the BEST time - it completely exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our Queenstown trip. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Kinross, followed by tastings and a cave tour at Gibbston Valley, then finally Mt. Rosa. Angus was such an incredible host, very entertaing and put up with my parent's banter! Such great value.
