This isn't your average wine or beer tour! I've carefully sought out the best of the best. These are Queenstown's boutique taste makers. Leave the tourist trail behind and let me take you on a personal journey to meet the folks who's passion, love for their craft and location sets them apart from the rest. Take a place that is widely considered one of the top wine regions in the new world, a recent explosion in craft & microbreweries and add in the pioneering kiwi spirit and you have the perfect recipe for an all out taste adventure. Wine and beer are made, first and foremost to just be enjoyed. So, whether you're the Einstein of wine or just here for a good ol' time, come sip, slurp & savour the best local flavours.
Kia Ora! My name is Jared. I've taken my love for adventure, food & drink and combined it with years of extensive travel and hospitality experience to found QTrip Queenstown. I love to seek out the unique and Boutique, the bold and the innovators. Showcasing and sharing the best Queenstown has on offer and giving guests a more authentic and exciting experience. For me the most memorable moments I have had whilst travelling have come from the hospitality of locals and being treated like an old friend rather than just another visiting stranger. Queenstown is where I call home and for the time you are here I want to make it feel like it's yours too. Hope to see you soon!

Limiting the environmental impact of each trip is something I am passionate about. I do this by: - Offsetting trips through local reforestation initiatives. Each trip = More trees planted - Providing sustainable water bottles that are compostable, reusable and made from plants
