Cruise & Wine Tour

Enjoy a leisurely 90-minute scenic cruise on the century old, coal fired vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw from Queenstown waterfront to Walter Peak High Country Farm (staying onboard) and return. Watch from the viewing platform the stokers shovel coal, check out the mini museum or make use of the onboard café with a hot drink or snack.

After disembarking the TSS Earnslaw in Queenstown there is time for lunch before meeting your friendly wine guide for your afternoon wine tour.

Enjoy tastings at three unique cellar doors including a guided tour and wine tasting inside New Zealand’s largest wine cave. Also, enjoy a delightful cheeseboard to accompany one of the wine tastings.

Enjoy a full running commentary from your passionate and enthusiastic Appellation wine guide; learn about this pioneering wine region and its evolution from just a couple of rows of vines into a world-renowned Pinot Noir producer. Be returned at approximately 5pm.
