Discover New Zealand’s most scenic wine region in luxury and style. Take to the sky and explore the dramatic mountain ridges then tantalise your taste buds by tasting your way through the world's southern-most wine producing region.
You will be collected from your hotel and dropped off to your heli and after a safety briefing, it's up and away for a spectacular scenic flight over the Gibbston wine region - this will give you an immense appreciation for the terrain and geographical relation of New Zealand’s southernmost wine growing region. Your heli ride includes an alpine landing on The Remarkables Mountains with ample time provided for photos and to soak up the phenomenal views of the Southern Alps. Your expert Appellation wine guide will meet you on arrival at a Gibbston based vineyard and after your first tasting for the day, relax and continue your wine tour experience by luxury vehicle through to the heart of the Central Otago wine region.
Enjoy a delicious à la carte lunch showcasing regional cuisine at a vineyard restaurant in Bannockburn or Cromwell and savour premium wine tastings at three premium vineyards.
We can pick-up and drop-off from any local hotel or accommodation. There is also flexibility with the start time and if you wish, the possibility of adding any further activities or sightseeing to the tour.
Please make an enquiry and we can discuss an itinerary to create your ultimate day out.
If you are the more discerning wine lover, or would simply prefer the flexibility of a private tour, then together we can customise your Central Otago wine experience. Join one of our senior wine guides on a wine tasting journey to some of New Zealand’s most memorable vineyards, at your own pace.
Our local knowledge and familiarity with the vineyards of Central Otago is at your disposal for an intimate half or full day’s wine experience in a thriving wine region. Let us custom design your wine touring experience, or alternatively, let us know where you would like to visit and we will arrange this all for you.
Our private wine tours below are designed for 2-9 guests. If your group is more than this, you might like to check out our Custom Wine & Bespoke Tours for custom tours or, otherwise all of our Daily Wine Tours can be run privately for groups.
Lastly, we know our region well, and include visits to any sub-region. Wanaka is a popular destination to visit and we can easily combine activities, lunch and vineyard visits on private tours. Please make an enquiry with your dream tour and let us do the rest!
