Vacations & Travel - - Travel talk -

Queenstown’s award-win­ning prop­erty, The Rees Hotel Queenstown, of­fers guests a fan­tas­tic Heli Wine Tast­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence, to add to the al­ready bur­geon­ing list of things to do in this spec­tac­u­lar part of the world. The Ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes a lux­ury trans­fer to the air­port where the He­li­copter Line’s six-seater char­iot awaits. The chop­per than flies over the lush Gibb­ston Val­ley and Kawa­rau Gorge on the way to Mt Dif­fi­culty, where you can taste its sen­sa­tional wines (make sure you try the Roar­ing Meg) and en­joy an in­cred­i­ble lunch, com­ple­mented by stun­ning views. Next stop is Rip­pon Vine­yard with jaw-drop­ping views over Lake Wanaka en-route, fol­lowed by a visit to the his­toric Cardrona Hotel be­fore fly­ing home. If you still feel like more wine, The Rees has one of the best wine cel­lars in New Zealand and its wine list has been glob­ally recog­nised in the an­nual Wine Spec­ta­tor Awards ev­ery year since 2012.
