With Queenstown behind you, we will whisk you through the stunning valley of the vines- Gibbston, the Kawarau gorge and the beginning of the famous Central Otago stone fruit area before arriving in Bannockburn.
This area (in addition to producing beautiful full bodied Pinot Noir) is a surprising oasis of boutique vineyards, heritage sights and fantastic vistas...
There is an opportunity to explore the Bannockburn sluicings- the aftermath of a gold miners dream before enjoying morning tea in a picture perfect location.
We then head off the beaten track away from civilisation to the exclusive Ben Nevis station for a high country experience... More will be revealed on the day.
A true kiwi picnic lunch will be served beside the river before we introduce you to the quaint old Cromwell town to peruse a few art galleries and some local delights.
On our return journey, we will venture back via the Cox family vineyard in Gibbston for a wine tasting before heading towards the charming village of Arrowtown for a spot of shopping.
This trip offers special treats in each of the 4 distinct seasons...
