Start your day being met by the helicopter company at your Queenstown accommodation and enjoy a scenic helicopter flight, landing on a mountaintop for a glass of bubbles. From here we land in the Gibbston wine region, home to award-winning winemakers, stunning scenery and, of course, delicious Pinot Noir.


After your helicopter flight, meet your guide and be hosted across four separate wine tasting experiences, including a tour of the underground wine cave at Gibbston Valley Winery. Your guide and cellar door staff will entertain you with local winemaking facts and stories, and you also have the option of indulging in a scrumptious lunch at a local winery (additional cost ordered on the day).


We're all about pairing good people with good wine, whether you're recharging your batteries after endless days of play, an avid sightseer, or a wine enthusiast. Let us take you on a top-rated wine tasting journey and experience more with Altitude Tours.
