Wanaka Scenic Tours

Just delicious – a day for wine and foodie lovers.
Let us introduce you to a day of decadence and show you some of Central Otagos best Pinot Noirs, white wines and tastiest local cuisine.
Let us start with Bubbles n Brunch at a little local cafe, and set the style for the day, allow us to show you our scenic backyard as we cruise along in our French 2CV car, leaving Wanaka and driving down the Clutha River Valley.
We  generally visit the smaller boutique and appointment only wineries meeting the owner /growers and sample their single vineyard wines, often around their kitchen table.  A wonderful experience -where friendships are created.
 If time allows – a stroll thru historic “Old Cromwell Town” bursting with local art and history.
 Ah….. the long lunch.
Wild Earth Winery and Restaurant, where your taste buds will be taken to new heights,  Their food is cooked in an old recycled pinot noir French Oak Barrel,  the Oak Stave Platter is a selection of 5 sample tastes off their main menu, selected by the owner and chefs to match 5 of their own wines, relax and enjoy this wonderful and unique dinning experience.
Can the day get any better…  while lets try, we have another boutique winery to visit and savour, more flavors to discover, and stories to hear, then sit back and relax as the quirky French 2CV winds back up the valley floor all the way to Lake Hawea with its magic jaw-dropping Mountain backdrop. Weather permitting we can sit out on the deck at Sailz Restaurant with a delicious dessert platter prepared for us by their lovely French Chef accompanied by a  red Port Wine (lovingly made by wonderful young female winemaker in Cromwell).  Such a beautiful setting to finish our tasting experience.
A  fun tasting adventure … full of intriguing tastes and deliciousness.
Leave yourself in our capable hands and let the chefs go wild as the French 2CV chauffeurs you around.
