Welcome to Alpine Wine Tours

Alpine Wine Tours offers memorable group, private and custom wine tours from Queenstown – the gateway to Central Otago’s renowned wine region.

Immerse yourself in a sensory experience in New Zealand’s largest wine cave and taste award-winning wines from the Valley of the Vines.

With a love for guiding, the region’s vintages and the tourism industry, you’re in safe hands with your local guides.

Wine-lovers can soak up the history of century-old oak wine barrels while swirling and sniffing unique flavours from the world’s most southern wine region, and foodies will be overjoyed with the chance to savour local cuisine along the way.

There’s no need to worry about a ‘dedicated driver’ as your guide whisks you away through the stunning Gibbston sub-region in comfort and style in our fleet of European vehicles, including 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters.

We really enjoyed our experience with Alpine Wine Tours! The day was super relaxed, yet really interesting. We loved that it was very boutique, definitely not your standard wine tour! With very luxurious transport! Will definitely book again!!
