Wine, Historic Places and other Deliciousness in Queenstown

Please: where ever you are - take a moment and detach yourself from reality to envision this picture:

You have some days off, take your sweetheart to Queenstown, New Zealand and spend some lazy, crazy, relaxing, invigorating, motivating and passionate days in this remarkable mountain resort.

Now you face some tough decisions: what are you going to do in Queenstown? Just staying in your hotel, enjoying the amenities there, like the spa, the pool and other treats or do you plan to experience something very unique and memorable?

In case you decide to treat yourself to an unforgettable day out in Queenstown, you could join our Canyon & Wine tour which takes you to historic places around Queenstown. You will visit Skippers Canyon in the morning, enjoy some lunch at a boutique winery in Gibbston Valley and taste the new glistering gold of this nearly untouched world in New Zealand.

But experiencing this once-in-a-life-time journey in Queenstown is only the start of a remarkable day out. Imagine this: you are dropped off in Queenstown downtown after our Wine & Culture tour and feel like a sweet treat. You could go to Patagonia Chocolates and indulge in sheer deliciousness after having a day of sheer marveling at the inexplicalbe.

Patagonia Chocolates is managed by one of our neighbors. He is the 'Chocolate Man' how we like to call him and his sweet treats and ice creams are - like our tours - truly worthy of your time and money. 

Though, it is true: neither our tours nor his sweets are 'not quite Nigella' but still pretty delicicous, indulging and simply passionate.

Fancy a short walk after some wine tasting?

It is true: wine tasting and an outstanding Lunch can be quite tiring - don't you think? So what about a short walk after a sumptuous meal and a real cultural experience of tasting some wines of Waitiri Creek in Gibbston Valley near Queenstown.

We just learned about this option some weeks ago. Apparently, an easy walk is accessable from the beginning of the valley as well as the end - that would be from Waitiri Creek. The walk is easily accessable for all 'walks of life' so to say but is interrupted due to some access restrictions. Those restrictions do not impair the experience and a real short walk departing from Waitiri Creek Winery is a true Queenstown experience.

It will take you about 30 minutes to experience Gibbston Valley from this different point of view. Even though, we do not offer this short walk on our Wine and Culture tour, it is surely something you should not miss while visiting Queenstown on your own.
