Everything as advertised & more! Truly a gourmet event... I have been to many wine tastings being from California and I felt the tour company ensured we had a unique experience at each location, thank you. I am also fussy about my food and was delighted by the lunch...wow! That day we had goat meatballs on polenta, venison with a wine sauce, skin on salamon, pork and all sorts of veggies along with a flight of wines matched to the food. Our host was gracious and gave us 15 minutes to scoot around Arrowtown very quickly. Overall, I was quite pleased with this experience and recommend it amongst the many choices.

Awesome Wine Tour Awesome tour! I went on the tour solo and had an amazing time. The wine was wonderful, food was delicious, and ride was great with the knowledgeable guide. He shared a lot of his knowledge on the area’s history and the wineries which kept the rides between wineries interesting. The tastings at each winery were also great with lovely staff. Highly recommend this wine tour! The food was a highlight as well, so good and awesome presentation.

Wine and Smoked Fare This was one of the most interesting of the several wine tours we took in New Zealand. The wine was excellent and the vintners interesting, but the star of the tour was lunch at the Stoakery Restaurant: meats and vegetables cooked in repurposed wine barrels served with a selection of Wild Earth wines. A unique and very tasty experience.

Helpful guide and good variation in wineries Our guide, Al, was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us wonderful insight about the vineyards we were visiting. Each of the wineries treated us with their best pours and helpful tasting notes. Lunch was a real treat, we asked for the vegetarian option and it was one for the best plates we had in NZ. Al also made sure everything operated well, even helping out at the meal and cheese tasting. I highly recommend this company for a tour.

Amazing Whiskey and Wine tasting luxury tour - one not to miss My wife bought for me a Whiskey and Wine Tasting luxury tour. We were picked up from our hotel by John, who was wonderfully engaging and knowledgeable about the area we were travelling through. We went to the Cardrona Distillery for a personal tour of the distillation process and tasting afterwards, which was wonderfully delivered by the team at Cardrona. We then went to Kinross Vineyard's Celler Door which was representing 5 different vineyards followed by a food platter - all was amazing and well delivered by the local teams. Would highly recommend this tour.

One of the best wine tours I've been on around the world Outstanding food and wine tour with an amazingly interesting group of people and a extremely knowledgeable guide. The sommelier were fantastic too. This region is known to produce some of the best Pinot Noir in the world. I learned sooooo much ... and tasted MANY wines...in fact it was one of the most generous wine tours in terms of how many wines we tasted. We visited Gibbston Valley Winery, Akarua winery, Misha's Vineyard (this where we had the main food tasting which was seriously spectacular... my favorite food thus far on our trip), and Mt. Rosa Wines. A couple of my favorites from rhe day were the 2023 Pinot Rouge by Akarua, 2022 China Terrace by Gibbston.

Tasteful and fun day Tasteful and fun day visiting 4 smaller wineries, including having a very tasteful lunch at one of them. Traveling together with a small group of 10 people from several different countries was great.
