Discover just why Queenstown and Central Otago is home to some of the world’s best Pinot Noir on a tasting tour of our wineries and cellar doors. 

Many wineries now bottle a number of varieties, so there’s something to pique the taste buds of all wine lovers on an organised car tour, or hop on a bike to ride through Gibbston’s vines (with a much-welcomed shuttle at the end of the day). For something truly special there are even helicopter tours.

Or, you might find yourself in Queenstown’s very own wine cave at one of the wineries where it all began in the 1980s.

A number of tour operators depart central Queenstown and tour a selection of Arrowtown, Queenstown and Gibbston wineries. 

If you’re having trouble deciding what to buy on tour, no worries! There are food and wine stores in both Queenstown and Arrowtown with a wide selection of vintages from here and around New Zealand.
