Spent Queen’s Birthday weekend in Oamaru doing the Steampunk Festival and took a “Rustic Ramble” Wine Tour with Sue who was an absolute dictionary of local historic and wine knowledge. Sue knows her stuff and that made it all the more enjoyable. The tasting in the middle of the vineyard with the snow covered mountains @ Bobbing Creek and the story behind the Pinot Noir being dedicated to Jon Gadsby brought a tear to my eye. The lunch tasting and cheese platter in the museum at Kurow was brilliant given that it was a cold & windy day. The Tour through North Otago and stopping @ Elephant Rocks was absolutely stunning. We just loved our whole tour & left Sue feeling like we had known each other for a long time.

Thanks for a unique experience today. We had a wonderful time – you’re a great host. Tasting wine in the vineyard next to the vines gave the whole thing a very authentic feel. And the lunch of cheese, pickles and accompaniments could not have been better. Especially in the local museum where we could pick up on some local history. And a big thank you for all the extras, that you took us to along the way. You are a wonderful champion for Waitaki.

Thanks for the amazing wine tour on Sunday, it was a truly unique experience, your warm personality and local knowledge was great. I have been on wine tours in Sydney + Adelaide but yours was the best due to your enthusiasm and passion about the local area. Thanks again.

Sue made us feel extremely welcome and went out of her way to make sure we sampled wines that we would enjoy as well as showed us points of interest in the Waitaki Valley.We would recommend other wine lovers to take one of Sue’s tours!
