  •   My sisters and I decided to do a wine tasting trip as none of us had done one before. What a fantastic afternoon we had. Our guide Rob was very knowledgeable and also a great laugh. The tastings at each of the wineries was a great opportunity to try different varieties and learn more about the art of wine making with a tasting also inside a wine cave. A definite must do for your trip to Queenstown.
