Wine Tours and Wineries in Queenstown

With four wine growing regions all within an hour's drive of Queenstown, there are plenty of wineries and cellar doors to visit. Central Otago is a world renowned region for Pinot Noir and is home to a number of award winning wines.

Wine Tours will allow you to experience some of the best wineries in the region and enjoy sampling the wine without the worry of having a nominated driver. There are four main wine growing regions close to Queenstown - Gibbston, Bannockburn, Cromwell and Alexandra. Many of the wineries have tasting rooms with a number also serving lunch to accompany their award-winning wines. Gibbston, the closest, is a mere 30 minute drive from the centre of Queenstown while Alexandra, the furthest region from Queenstown, is a 75 minutes drive. The wines of Central Otago are award-winning not just because of their quality but also because they vary so much in taste, aroma and complexity. The landscape of this region, characterised by mountains and gorges, creates a large variation in temperature. Along with the wildly varying topography this gives rise to many micro-climates and soil variations with each wine growing region producing very separate and distinct wine.
