What you'll do
A winemaker at a prestigious local winery during the week, on the weekend I love sharing my wine making passion. Experience a jam packed full day of wine tastings, vineyards and wineries in Arrowtown, Gibbston Valley, Cromwell and Bannockburn. Wander the vines and go behind the scenes of some exclusive boutique wineries as I share my passion for how grapes are grown and how wine is made in this in-depth experience. You will try wines straight from the barrel, witness different vineyard practices (& have a go yourself) and see how a winery operates. I'll show you how different wines are made & the equipment used in the production. A gourmet lunch is provided in a quaint bistro in the Gibbston Valley, enjoy great food as you sample local wines. Followed by some very special winery and cellar door tastings. You will get to try over 25 different Central Otago wines during the day. To provide a truly unique and personalized experience I limit my tour to a maximum of 6 people. Operating since the launch of AirBnB Experiences in New Zealand, and only within this domain I promise you an experience like no other. Plus you get to hang out with a local for the day.
