No regrets!!!

I don’t often review things but I know how much the reviews for this helped me make my decision at 10pm the night before to do this tour! Em was exceptionally friendly, informative and fun and Ruby the wine dog was great to have apart of the team. Definitely the best experience we had in Queenstown. It was great to have a smaller group of people, by the first wine stop it felt like I was just with a few friends hopping around vineyards! If you pick any wine tour make sure you pick this one!

Hi Katie, Thanks so much for leaving such an amazing review, we really appreciate it as people like to see reviews before going ahead and experiencing a wine tour with us! We love hearing you have no regrets and enjoyed the smaller group size plus having Ruby the wine dog is a great point of difference and for those missing their dogs back home. Cheers, Emma and Ruby

Great Day

Small group, engaging host (Emma), easy directions and guidance over the day, great to have pre-set tables (no waiting or dealing with crowded gatherings at the tasting bench), good variety in wine tasting, on the money (very fair for what you get) and a super cute doggo. The weather was also in our favour and it was a glorious day. Couldn't ask for more.

premium wines

Initially the tour seemed quite overpriced but being on holiday and being Queenstown we booked anyway. We were very pleased with the pickup from our accommodation and then the high quality of the wine. There were some unique and uncommon varietals amongst the well known ones but they were all really nice. Emm the host was very attentive and we thought that it was a bonus that it was her business, not part of a larger operation. The wines we tasted were premium wines, some of which we would never get the chance to enjoy again so that was a real privilege. Thanks Emm.

Hi Paul, Thanks for the great 4 star review and I'm happy you enjoyed the wine tour with me, always nice to have the owner and be a family owned and operated wine tour company. Love to hear you enjoyed the premium wines of Central Otago and thank you for joining us. Thanks, Emma

Best wine tasting experience

From the get go, after only booking the night before, Emma the tour guide text to welcome me and arrange a pick up. She appeared on time and at the arranged destination. Joining the minibus there were two sets two Ozzy ladies and fellow Wine tasters. Emma's friendly, knowledgeable experience shone through throughout the tour. We all had a good time and an excellent lunch. Chapeau 😁 πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
