Wine, Dine & Unwind – (2 Night Stay)

Valid until 30th June 2022.  Subject to availability.

Looking for the “ultimate” weekend escape to slow down, relax a little and enjoy the finer things in life, then this package is for you! 

Enjoy two night’s luxury bed and breakfast accommodation “off-grid” at Kinross Cottages, surrounded by vines and nestled in the heart of the Gibbston wine region. (Approximately 25 minutes from central Queenstown). Their generously sized rooms, complete with bathroom and kitchenette will make you feel right at home, however, in contrast, their hot tub experience will whisk you far-away from the every-day in no time at all.

Not only do Kinross produce their own excellent wine but they also represent their award-winning wine partners, Coal Pit, Hawkshead, Valli and Wild Irishman. This means that their tasting experiences are extensive and renowned.  A wine tasting at Kinross is included in the package so make sure you book in at a time that suits during your stay.

Choose a day to join our Boutique Wine Tour and we will have you out and exploring the very best of Central Otago – tastings at 4 wineries in the Gibbston and Bannockburn/Cromwell wine regions, a delicious platter lunch and all the stories and wine education you could ask for. We will collect you from Kinross late morning and drop you back at the end of the day.   

Airport arrival or departure transfers are available. Please let us know if you wish to add this option when you enquire to book.
