Best wine tour full stop
This is the best wine tour we've every taken. Natalie is the goddess of wine, her knowledge of wine and this region is amazing.

We took the Lion tour and our lunch platter was amazing.

First class tour. Highly recommend.

A tiddly day out!
Jul 2021
I did this tour with my husband on my birthday.... it was an excellent tour and an excellent birthday 🥳 We were treated like old friends at every vineyard we visited and Natalie was an awesome guide. The visit to the meadery was a great little addition to the day 🐝 And I came away with a few 'birthday presents'!!!

Amazing and knowledgeable
Apr 2021
Natalie collected us promptly at 11am and told us what we were going to experience that day. We did the LION tour which was from 11am and back just after 4pm. Natalie is hugely knowledgeable about everything to do with wine and the Central Otago region. A lovely host, we really enjoyed our day. The only thing we were a little disappointed about was the lunch platter, as it mainly had cheese and crackers/bread, chutneys. We would have like some meats or pickles. But that is just a small thing, our day with Natalie was fabulous. 5 stars, recommended.

Great tour including lesser known but high-quality wineries
Feb 2021
We visited 5 wineries, 3 of which I had not heard of before but wine quality of all was excellent. Natalie was a good host and driver and excellent guide to wine styles of the Central Otago region.

Brilliant Day Out!
Oct 2020
We did the Lion Tour (full day) and were collected from Queenstown. We had an absolutely fabulous day with Natalie touring some amazing small vineyards in Central Otago. All wineries that we visited were super friendly and the wine at each stop was amazing. Natalie worked out very quickly what wines her guests liked and catered the tour accordingly. We were even able to visit a vineyard that made port. We even tasted some honey mead (made by Natalie's husband Cole) which was amazing and my husband was so stoked to be able to label his own bottle, which of course he purchased (plus an extra one just in case). Would highly recommend Roaring Wine Tours - they are the best! I even managed to purchase special wine glasses made just to drink Central Otago pinot noir! Had no idea they even existed before the tour :)

A highlight
If you are in the area book this trip with Natalie. She is knowledgeable, not just someone driving a van. Took us to some great boutique wineries which we wanted. We also got to visit some bonus places as well.
