Great tour with a lovely guide, Ivan, who was really knowledgeable about the area. Food and wine at Wild Earth and Gibbston Valley also excellent of course! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and meeting other travellers - there weren't any wine snobs!

We booked a food and wine tour in Gibston Valley with one of the tour shops. The 'tours' were minimal, but we loved meeting new people and getting to try all the different wine and food pairings!

Questions & Answers
Hi Everyone, I'm visiting Queenstown in mid-August with my boyfriend and we're excited to visit the Queenstown Wine Trail for the first time. We've hired bikes from Arrowtown, and have decided that doing a day self-guided is better for us rather than adhering to a tour. We are taking the bus in from Queenstown and then hiring the bikes from 11am - 3pm. Could anyone help me with my questions: 1. How far do you think we could go on the trail before we'd need to turn back? 2. Is it possible in that time to loop back around via Lake Hayes, or would we not have enough time? 3. How many wineries / what wineries would you suggest that we visit in the time that we have? 4. Has anyone done the trail during that time of year (Winter)? And should we prepare for it / wear quite warm clothes etc? Thanks so much!!
