The best!

Fantastic experience with Angus the guide who made for a exceptional day of good food, great wine and lots of laughs. Angus was a wealth of knowledge and had great stories to tell, he was passionate about the wine and really made the day special. Would give 6 stars if I could!

You will be delighted with this tour!

We were late! Andrew bought a sense of calm. He then quickly advised us about the Wine Hopper experience and we relaxed as he began an interesting and informative guided tour through to Arrowtown. Our transport was comfortable and we appreciated the quality of the on board sound system! Arrowtown was lovely and we had plenty of time to explore. We visited three vineyards.each with something different to offer and all with opportunity to sip some sensational Otago Pinot Noir wines. Our first tasting at Gibbston Valley in such a lovely setting. Lunch at our second stop, Kinross was fabulous! A small but very nice extra was hand cream in the bathroom. Our last stop was at Mt Rosa. Great wine tasting here with six wines to consider plus a bonus taste of their mulled Rose. We were introduced to Pinot Blanc which we really liked. The Rose was the best of the day for me and we also bought a bottle each of their mulled wine syrup and their sangria syrup. Highly recommend Wine Hoppers and will be back! Thanks so much Andrew!
