My wife and I took a half day tour and couldn't have been happier. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the guide Richard was very knowledgeable, not just about the wine industry in Central Otago, but wine in general. Highly recommended.

Just wanted to send you a quick note to pass on our thanks to Paul and the Appellation Central Wine Tour Company. My partner and I had a wonderful time on the full-day Gourmet Wine tour, and Paul was a sensational host. He was so knowledgeable of not only the wine region and five individual wineries that we visited, but he was also a fantastic source of all kinds of local area information and history which was a very nice bonus for us. Overall, it was a very enjoyable day and one that I would highly recommend.

We had Steph as our guide and she was the best. She was so knowledgeable and explained things so well. We visited 4 wineries in Central Otago and had a very good lunch in one. There were lots of tastings about 7 at each winery. We learnt a great deal about New Zealand wines.
It was the guide that made the tour as she was so well informed about all the different wines and all the wineries in the region. We even stopped at the request of one of the group at a road side place selling Manuka Honey and she knew all about what type to get.

What a trip! I was recommended this trip by a friend and it does not disappoint. Our tour guide Paul was simply brilliant. He was so knowledgeable about the area we were in and all the wines we were tasting. It was lovely to be taken around by someone who was so enthusiastic about what we were seeing.

The four wineries we visited were all very different and each provided a great insight into what the wine makers of central Otago are really trying to achieve!
