Central Otago

Central Otago, near the bottom of New Zealand's South Island, vies for the title of the world's most southerly wine region. Vineyards cling to the sides of mountains and high above river gorges in this dramatic landscape. Pinot Noir has proven itself in this challenging terroir and takes up nearly three-quarters of the region's vineyard area. The typical Central Otago Pinot Noir is intense and deeply colored, with flavors of Doris plum, sweet spice, and bramble.


Breathtaking beauty: Immerse yourself in the stunning Milford Sound, the Remarkables Mountain Range, and the cascading waterfalls of Fiordland National Park.

Like nowhere else: Indulge in a sensory journey through the world of Central Otago's renowned Pinot Noirs, Pinot Gris, and Riesling, crafted by our favorite producers.

Adrenaline-fueled experiences: Unleash your inner thrill-seeker in Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world, where countless hair-raising activities await your every turn.

Fly & Cruise Milford Sound


Enjoy a scenic flightseeing tour over the dramatic Fjordland scenery before traversing the full length of the 7.5-mile fjord over 2 hours. Described by Rudyard Kipling as the 'eighth wonder of the world,' Milford Sound is breathtaking in any weather. The fjord's cliffs rise vertically from the dark waters, mountain peaks scrape the sky and waterfalls cascade downwards some as high as 1000 metres. When it rains in Milford Sound, and it often does, those waterfalls multiply with magnificent effect.
