Central Otago is one of the leading wine regions in the world, established in Gibbston by Sir Alan Brady in 1981. Pinot Noir became the variety of choice in this cool climate at 45 South. The quality of the wine is a testament to the passion and hard work. Five small subregions represent the Central Otago region with Gibbston and Bannockburn being the closest to Queenstown. Wineries like Mt Edward, Valli, Brennan, Akarua, Felton Road and Mt Difficulty are available to be enjoyed with your better half or a group of friends.
You will be looked after from start to finish starting with a pick up from your accommodation in one of our luxury vehicles. All bookings and tastings are arranged with flexible times to ensure that you are not rushed throughout the day. If you like a vineyard then we can stay and enjoy more time. We have access behind the cellar door at most wineries allowing private tasting, one-on-ones with owners, managers and winemakers.
Lunch options are available at some wineries or enquire about our gourmet picnic hampers.
Another option is to start the day with an invigorating hike or bike ride then enjoy a late brunch at a local gem in Arrowtown. Afterwards we progress into a wine and fun filled afternoon. We know the best locations for wine, food and fun comma making the most of your time.
