Q. Are children welcome on the wine tours?
A. Kids are welcome on the wine tours and travel at 2/3 price of an adult. Kids price is up to 17 years of age. We do have to charge the kids rate for infants and toddlers as legally we have to allocate a seat to them and this means we cannot take a full fare paying adult. Booster seats are available on request.
Q. Is there somewhere to store our purchased wine safely in the van?
A. Wine racks are installed in each of the vans so that any wine you have purchased from the cellar doors will not break on the drive home.
Q. What is the difference between a cellar door, vineyard and winery?
A. A cellar door is somewhere that offers wine tastings and information about the wine, a vineyard is where the grapes are grown and a winery is where the wine is made. Some cellar doors are also wineries and vineyards but this is not always the case as the wine is sometimes grown and produced at other locations.
Q. Will we be visiting any wineries or vineyards on our tour?
A. Yes, if you book the Wine Sampler tour then you will visit several cellar doors as well as at least one winery and vineyard.
Q. Which winery do we stop at for lunch on the Wine Sampler tour?
A. This can vary but its generally either Kinross, Waitiri Creek or Mt Rosa.
Q. What cellar door will we be visiting on our tour?
A. There are dozens of cellar doors available to us in Central Otago however the specific locations we visit each day may vary depending on group size and what the cellar door has happening at their end. Rest assured, we have chosen each cellar door we visit carefully so you won’t be disappointed.
Q. Can we request which cellar doors our tour goes to?
A. Unfortunately, unless you book and pay for a private tour we cannot guarantee which cellar doors we go to. However we’ve handpicked the places we go to, so you get the best experience possible.
Q. How long do we spend at each cellar door/winery?
A. On average you will spend about 30 minutes at each stop with about 1.5 hours at the winery where you have lunch.
Q. We want to be picked up or dropped off from a central location instead of our accomodation?
A. No problem at all, we can pick you up from central Queenstown, or from your accommodation. Please either request this when you book or contact us directly and your friendly driver will ensure this happens.
Q. The Twilight tour states pick up from ‘Central Queenstown’, what does this mean?
A. For the twilight tour we pick up from outside the Station Building on the corner of Camp and Shotover Streets, central Queenstown.
Q. We want to do a full day wine tour including lunch, what can you offer?
