Wine History around Queenstown:

The Queenstown Wine Trail follows the story of wine production in the area. Gibbston Valley Wines released the region's first commercial wine vintage in 1987. Since then the region and its several vineyards have become famous for producing premium wines, particularly pinot noir. Winemaking at 45 ° south is an adventurous business. The vineyards here are at high altitude and subject to cold winters, hot dry summers and a huge night to day temperature range. Such adversity has led to pioneering winemaking, consistently superb wines, worldwide recognition and a plethora of international awards.

Each winery in the Queenstown region is a unique reflection of the pioneering spirit and passion for wine common to the local winemakers and viticulturalists. There are several vineyards in the Queenstown region. Queenstown Wine-Trail have chosen the best vineyard combinations to provide an unhurried tour for each group on any given day.

A knowledgeable, fun and friendly guide will escort you from Queenstown into the wine country of the scenic Wakatipu region. At each vineyard you'll meet a member of the vineyard for a close up perspective of the local wine. Whether your palate is well developed or simply enthusiastic, as long as you love wine, their tours will delight.
