    Great Sommelier, Fantastic Tasting!
    Had a fantastic wine tasting during our tour. My family and I aren’t too big on wine but everything was so tasty! Our sommelier Shelen was fantastic and very knowledgeable. She was so fun to talk with and was very good at explaining the intricacies of each wine and the reasons why to my family and I. The wines we had were fantastic, and the room were had our tasting in was gorgeous. Absolutely recommending this to anyone in town!

    Tremendous experience - tasting and wines top rate
    Kinross - Valli tasting Terrific cellar door set up for a number of smaller wineries. Unlike others, the Kinross team represent 5 Central Otago including Valli, Cool Pit, Kinross, Wild Irishman in a detailed and professional manner. You’ll need a booking to taste. We were lucky to have the passionate and knowledgeable Eloise take us through the Valli range - 2 whites and 4 Pinot’s, describing the differences between the vineyards. Highly recommend a visit, for any of these wineries.

    Two visits - both wonderful!
    We visited Kinross twice on two different wine tours with Altitude Tours and both were fabulous. A great range of wines to taste and there's a couple of dozen on their way to us in Oz. Love the Coal Pit Pinot Noir and the story behind it. There were a lot of "yum" moments for us during our various sampling. On our second visit we visited the bistro and were really delighted with our tasting plates (the baked camembert is to die for!). Staff were lovely and our hostess was just spectacular. Thanks to you all for making our visits so lovely. We eagerly await arrival of our goodies. Expensive shipping but worth every penny. See you again next time! Tanya & Eddie xx

    Visit and stay at Klinross Winery
    We stayed in one of the cottages. Located next to the vineyards, the cottage was clean and comfortable. We also ate at the bistro and participated in a wine tasting. Several good wines! Liam was our wine taster and we found him friendly and knowledgeable. We ended up ordering 30 bottles to be shipped to the USA. I highly recommend.

    A special treat & divine!
    We came here on our wine tour with Angus and the host of your wine tasting was so infromative, and the lunch we had was simply delicious! Thank you so much to whomever made the cake, it was a truly lovely surprise, and we enjoyed it thoroughly! We might look at coming to stay when next we are in Central Otago. Again thank you and our compliments to the chef for the outstanding meals.

We had an amazing tasting with Martial. He was very friendly and had excellent knowledge of all the wines. The wines themselves were fantastic and we even got a couple of bottles to take home. Will be back.

A return trip will be the last, did a wine tasting and the guy who did it was lovely and wines too but that’s where it stopped.
As much as I understand them pushing a wine club membership, I didn’t think it would mean I couldn’t buy the one I wanted.
I was told it was exclusive to members only, and I understand just didn’t think in these current times a business would want to chose who would buy there product. I guess they don’t need support from travellers.
