INTIMATE, SMALL GROUP TOURS TO BOUTIQUE WINERIES
IN THE CENTRAL OTAGO WINE REGION.
Hi, I'm Natalie Lions, along with my husband Cole we operate a boutique Central Otago wine tour business.
I live for wine. I am a Certified Sommelier with 12 years experience in the New Zealand wine industry. I have my advanced WSET and diploma of New Zealand wine. Basically i'm a wine nerd!
As for my husband, although not formally trained in wine, Cole has worked in a number of cellar doors and as a wine broker for one of New Zealand's largest brokerages. Mostly Cole stays in the office, but now and again if were lucky, he will join us on a tour.
Explore Central Otago’s wineries with us. Taste wine with wine makers and vineyard owners from some of the regions smallest wineries.
Travel through gorgeous gorges, over ravenous rivers and under magnificent mountains as we try some of the most mouthwatering wine and food that Central Otago has to offer.
