Alpine Adventures High-Country Heli Wine Tasting Experience

Savour Central Otago wine on top of a high-country station on this unique heli wine tasting adventure.

Alpine Adventures has exclusively partnered with Mt Rosa Wines to create this authentic experience where you can taste the region’s finest wines while perched amongst outstanding alpine high country in one of the most remote and scenic wine growing regions in the world.

Your adventure begins as we transport you to Queenstown Airport to board your privately chartered helicopter and ascend over beautiful Gibbston Valley to Mt Rosa Wines. We touch down to collect Mt Rosa Wines owner Guy Boanas who will personally take you through the wine tasting. Returning to the air, we soar above the rugged Kawarau Gorge with views as far as Mount Cook in the north and the Nevis Mountain Range to the south, to land on top of Lowburn Station.

Located on the breathtaking Pisa Range, the station is a picturesque 5,000ha family working farm with sheep, cattle and alpacas, boasting sweeping views across Lake Dunstan, Cromwell and Bannockburn wine regions.

Guy will take you on a wine tasting journey of five Mt Rosa Wines including Central Otago’s distinctive Pinot Noir. Indulge in a local artisan cheese board as you take in spectacular vistas across alpine meadows and rugged snow-capped peaks.

Discover how this high-altitude area with challenging conditions has led to consistently superb wines, worldwide recognition and multiple international awards. We board our private helicopter and enjoy a scenic descent across towards Queenstown.

Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests and tastes. Get in touch to customise your experience and make your Queenstown adventure one to remember.

Alpine Adventures offers a door-to-door service in its fleet of luxury European vehicles including Land Rover Discovery's or Mercedes vans so you travel safely in comfort and style.

Our small team of highly qualified local guides ensure every tour is tailored to suit your interests and abilities.

The family owned and operated business prides itself on its quality travel experiences and environmental practices, recognised by New Zealand tourism's official quality assurance organisation Qualmark with a silver rating.
