    What to Expect
    Discover some of Wanaka and Central Otago’s wonderful vineyards and scenery, while meeting some of the numerous characters that produce these gorgeous, award winning wines. You will be taken to the little gems that are quietly making a big name for themselves with their dedication to produce the best possible wine. Here you’ll get up close and personal with the vineyard owners and wine makers.

    You will be picked up from your Wanaka accommodation, and taken back there on completion of the tour.

    You will be guided in style around 6 of Wanaka and Central Otago's premium Boutique Vineyards. Your knowledgeable and friendly guide will enhance your experience by providing an insightful, entertaining commentary about the geography, the history, soils and the characters of this amazing region. You'll be tasting world class Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Rose and Sauvignon Blanc along the way.

    Find out why this little region is punching well above its weight when it comes to producing well balanced, delightful, premium wines.

    Halfway through your tour, you will stop at a popular local vineyard restaurant, where you'll enjoy a delicious gourmet platter, while overlooking the vineyard.

    There is plenty of time for photos and chatting with your new found friends.

    You'll come away from the tour with a new appreciation of Central Otago's wine, history, beauty and characters.
