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. 

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.
