Sensory Immersion Tour

NZ $525 per person

The Sensory Immersion Tour is the world’s first multi-sensory wine pairing experience – this one-of-a-kind-tour reimagines the well-known food and wine pairing with music, sounds, color, texture, scent and more. Based on the latest cutting-edge research in food science and sensory experience, this exclusive NZ Wine Tours-designed immersive tasting engages all 5 senses (aided by 12+ pairings w/ Central Otago’s finest wines ) to explore how each sense affects the way we perceive wine and flavours – all in the privacy of The Aroma Room. This bespoke session will be followed by an a-la-carte lunch with wine at Mt Difficulty winery restaurant , where you will dine amongst the rugged beauty of Bannockburn’s mountainous vistas. Your day will conclude with visits to two more wineries, chosen on the day to suit your tastes, and a lovely scenic drive through the Kawarau Gorge back to Queenstown.

Tour Plan

Drive to The Aroma Room
We collect you from your accommodation around 9am and take a 1 hour drive through the Kawarau Gorge to The Aroma Room in The Cromwell Basin. There is one optional stop along the way to visit a bathroom if needed.
The Sensory Experience in The Aroma Room
This experience involves a series of tastings the explore the senses and their influence on your glass of wine. We taste wine from different glassware, with different music and variable colour lighting, to highlight how your environment can affect your tasting experience. We taste 6 different wines, twice each, for a total of 12 tastings spread over 2 hours, so please have a hearty breakfast before the tour.
Mt Difficulty Lunch
After the Sensory Experience we treat you to an a-la-carte lunch with a glass of wine at the beautiful Mt Difficulty Winery Restaurant. Here you will overlook the vines of Bannockburn and the mountains surrounding the Cromwell Basin while you dine of Central Otago's finest cuisine.
Three Customised Winery Visits
After lunch we take you to visit two - three further wineries which we select on the day to suit the tastes of the people on the tour. After discussing your tastes, interests and requests we select wineries that will truly suit your tastes on the day. Our guides are experts in wine and we work with over 25 different Cellar Doors to ensure you get to taste the best of what the region has to offer for the perfect day out.
