We were due to fly to Milford Sound but it was cancelled due to the weather so what to do? We love wine so our hotel booked a degustation wine tour with Jake. Talk about turning adversity into opportunity. It was a fantastic day. Three wineries and a brilliant lunch. Jake is knowledgeable and passionate but we were really impressed how he planned the day around our taste in wine. We loved the wine pairing the way the Riesling changed into two totally different wines after lemon curd and a lime wedge was an eye opener.

This is definitely one of our favourite wine tours we've been on. Liz was superb as our tour guide, so friendly, funny, attentive and informative. We visited a total of 5 wineries over a full day tour, including an absolutely delicious stopover for lunch with amazing wine and a meat and cheese platter. What showed me Liz really cared about each of her guests was that she tried to get to know each of our wine preferences before lining up which wineries to take us to. Had an amazing time as a small group of 6, had great fun and enjoyed beautiful scenery along the way. It has been a wonderful experience of Central Otago wine and great New Zealand hospitality!

Great day spent with Jake tasting NZ wines paired with gorgeous food and learning about the countryside and wine making. Thoroughly enjoyed our day and Jake is super lovely and knows his stuff - we’ll be repeating the experience on our next visit!
