Angus was a super star!
A group of friends and I did a wine tour yesterday. We got picked up from our accommodation, taken to three different winery’s, tried copious amounts of wine, cheese and a cute three course lunch with wine paired with the three dishes. Angus, our driver was super knowledgeable about the region. He was a perfect photographer for all of our group photos, he was super patient, nothing was a problem. All of the staff at the different winery’s were amazing, everyone was super funny. Angus then dropped us back at our accommodation. All 7 of us were super happy with the experience, with absolutely nothing bad to say. Thank you to all involved!

Everything was super easy. Being picked up by the lovely Eva and driven to the vineyards made for a very relaxing day. It was also a very interesting day and you learn a lot about the history of the area and wine making.

This was my first ever wine tour. What a wine tour it was. Andrew was the absolute perfect host. So knowledgeable about the area and it's history, he took us to the best wineries and obviously had a great relationship with the teams there.
The wines were amazing and the matching food was to die for.
If you are ever considering a wine tour in this region you would be a total idiot not to take Queenstown Wine Trail Tours up on their offer.
The whole team had a great time and in 4 hours we had experienced WORLD CLASS wines, settings, food and amazingness.
Thanks Andrew for a great day out. We look forward to the next one!

Wine, food and laughter.
Aug 2020
We were picked up from our hotel by our guide Andrew in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan, for a tour of 3 wineries, including lunch. There were 6 people in total on the tour, which meant a fun, chatty afternoon. Andrew was very informative, not only about the wines and wineries, but also about the local geology, economy, climate and people. We started at Kinross Winery, where we also had an excellent lunch, accompanied with matched wines. The vinter at Mount Rosa, our second stop was greatly entertaining and knowledgeable. The third and last stop at Gibbston Winery included a tour of the wine cave - fascinating.

All-in-all, a great day out with excellent wines, food, entertaining and industry knowledge. I highly recommend this tour company.

The whole day was just fantastic. Our driver/ guide was Angus and he was very knowledgeable as well as fun and very entertaining. He took us to 3 wineries, the first being at Kinross where we had food and wine matching which was extremely delicious. The real highlight of the door was probably the final tasting at Mt Rosa where we tried some incredible wines and a really gd laugh. We would highly recommend this your. Thanks again Angus from the wards.
