Originally from Canada and now a fully adopted Kiwi, Liz has lived all over the world guiding tours ranging from back-country skiing to nature hikes and, of course, Wine Tours. Liz has been settled in Queenstown for over 13 years and has been taking wine tours in the region for over 7 years, she has a WSET Level 3 Diploma in Wine and experience working on vineyards. She also regularly takes formal tastings with winemakers and somms of the region and is now part of a team making wine on the side (just for fun).
