*Wine Tour Perfection!* This was our first wine tour in New Zealand and it was perfection. Philip was a wonderful host, full of local knowledge about the area, the history and the wines. He took us to four different wineries, a cave tour, a walk through the vineyards and an amazing outdoor lunch. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. It's a "must do" for any visit to the south island.

We had the most perfect day on our wine tour with Phillip and Appellation Wine Tours! Good friends, great wine, and a wonderful host in Phillip. We took some friends from out of town and a few who live here in Queenstown and all thought it was a great tour and an awesome day. I have been on several wine tours and tastings in the past, but I learned a ton about the Queenstown area and finally understand why this is a great spot for winemaking. :-)

I live 30 mins from Napa Valley, CA, so I've been on my share of Wine Tours. Phillip's tour last week was one of the best I've ever been on. Phillip is knowledgeable, personable, and is relentless about making sure you have the absolute best experience - this tour was second to none!

What a great wine tour! I even live here in Queenstown and chose to take my friends on an amazing day of wine tasting, sightseeing, and an incredible lunch. I'd highly recommend this!
