We had a great time

We had a great time, The vineyards were amazing, the Gibbston Valley is outta sight and our tour guide Angus was super knowledgeable and a swell driver. This was our first day in Queenstown and already feel like we will go home happy, especially seeing as we will be taking some delicious wines back with us.
