Liz Mathieson

Originally from Canada and now a fully adopted Kiwi, Liz has lived all over the world guiding tours ranging from back-country skiing to nature hikes and, of course, Wine Tours. Liz has been settled in Queenstown for over 13 years and has been taking wine tours in the region for over 7 years, she has a WSET Level 3 Diploma in Wine and experience working on vineyards. She also regularly takes formal tastings with winemakers and somms of the region and is now part of a team making wine on the side (just for fun). Her other passions include skiing, hiking and photography as well as the amazing landscape of New Zealand. She also has a slight synesthesia (she smells in colour!) – ask her to describe a wine in technicolour, it’s amazing.
