Mt Difficulty, Cloudy Bay Shed & Gibbston Wine Tour - Full Day
Join us as we transport wine lovers to some of Central Otago’s most exclusive wine tasting experiences on this all-inclusive full-day wine and dine escape.
Sit back and enjoy one of the world’s most scenic vineyard journeys as your personal guide transports you through picturesque Kawarau Gorge in the comfort of our Land Rover Discovery or Mercedes van to Bannockburn, the heart of the Central Otago wine region.
Visit the charming town of Bannockburn before indulging in a wine tasting at one of the region’s top wineries, Mt Difficulty, perched high on the famed Felton Road. We enjoy lunch at their winery restaurant with dramatic views across Lake Dunstan and the Cromwell basin. Choose any main from their locally-sourced menu to enjoy with your choice of wine, or indulge in a decadent cheese board with chef’s selection of local cheese and artisan accompaniments before continuing our adventure.
We arrive at the renowned, multi-award-winning Cloudy Bay winery for a private 45-minute tasting in the exclusive Lakeview Room. Enjoy this unique opportunity to meet the people behind the wine, and delve into their fascinating wine making philosophy. Here we have the option to add a private vineyard tour or extended two-hour wine tasting for those who would like a fully immersive experience.
Next we venture into Gibbston wine region the ‘Valley of the Vines’, nestled between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge. Here we can sample more world-class Pinot Noir before enjoying a scenic drive back towards Queenstown.
