Central Otago wine country spreads from the outskirts of Queenstown through picturesque valleys and gorges to the rolling vine-clad hills of Bannockburn and beyond.
Appellation Central's Wine Tours - much more than a taste experience:
Join Appellation Central and take a journey through this remarkable wine region with it's unforgettable views, fascinating pioneering history, along with the smooth sophistication of award-winning gourmet food and wines.
Our personalised half and full day guided tours depart daily from Queenstown. Each tour is designed so there is time to enjoy every aspect of the day, with wine tasting as the perfect accompaniment.
Small Group Tours - 12 Adults maximum:
Appreciating the many aspects of Central Otago's viticulture and lifestyle isn't something you can do in a big group, so to ensure everybody gets to fully enjoy the region we keep our tour groups small - an absolute maximum of 11 people to each specialist guide.
Diverse selection of Cellar Doors:
We also don't claim to visit as many vineyards in as short a time as possible, and we won't rush you around, we do claim to give you a taste of Central's wines, food and scenery, introduce you to some of the vineyard staff, take you to areas off the beaten track, and return you to your accommodation just a little bit addicted to Central. Our intimate knowledge of Central Otago means we can choose from over 22 cellar doors.
Join us on one our tours and we will look forward to sharing our passion for the region with you.
