Small Group Wine, Food and Beer Tours

These intimate group tours are limited to just 7 or less people per tour so we can customise the wineries we visit. Every tour is adapted to suit the tastes of the people on board and we don’t visit the same wineries every day!

Our tours have a relaxed pace, with plenty of time to enjoy each wine. We also allow time to enjoy the stunning mountain landscape and many exceptional vistas around Central Otago. Whenever time allows, we make stops at many of the regions best scenic look-outs and historical hot-spots, including the Crown Range Lookout, the Cromwell Old Town, the Kawarau Bungy Bridge, and Arrowtown’s Historic Town Center – A camera and comfortable shoes are highly recommended!
