Visit three unique locations around Queenstown and Gibbston with a minimum of 12 tastings of some of the finest drops in the region. Now, here’s the twist, if beer is more your thing then bounce from vines to hops and taste some local craft beers instead.
Better yet, we depart at 3.45pm meaning you can still go out paddle-boarding or bungy jumping in the morning, or even fly in from out of town. Shared antipasto platters are also included at our final stop, a perfect starter for once you finish the tour and head into town for a meal (or more wine).
Travel in style with transfers in a luxury Mercedes van, enjoy learning how to taste wine through on-board videos and make use of our complimentary WiFi and Spotify playlists.
The 4 hour Twilight Wine & Craft Beer Tour departs from central Queenstown at 3.45pm and returns around 7.30pm.
