On our Wanaka stopover, we booked a half day wine tour with Lonely Mountain Tours. It was a bit more expensive than some of the others but we discovered that the transport was very comfortable, the tour was longer and a scrummy lunch was included! We had a chilled afternoon trying out the all the wines at four different vineyards in Cromwell and Bannockburn, the Pinot Noir was definitely a winner. What really made this tour was that it was more than just a wine tour, John’s passion for the area was inspiring. If you want to experience the wine and get a really good feel for the area as well, this is the tour for you!

rjbinoz, thanks for your compliments :). Great to hear you enjoyed the Pinor Noir and the lunch. We think we have some really amazing local produce in the central otago region but there is so much more to central and and we all really love sharing our local insights with our guests.
Best wishes, John (Tour Director)
