I read reviews of the Winery and knew it was a spot I wanted to check out on my family's trip to Queenstown over Christmas. The Winery is a shop with loads of New Zealand wines, all in one location. You can try as many wines as you'd like, all being charged to a debit-type card. Mid-to-high range in price.... More

So it was on a grey sky morning in Queenstown that I found myself at The Winery with a huge cheese platter all to myself and a $35 preloaded tasting card. The selection of NZ wines is well balanced, giving you a good taste of the different varietals across the country. The wines range in quality from fairly normal to... More

This is a great concept. You can taste the wines in several different areas throughout the shop simply by inserting a card which totals up the amount that you are actually tasting. For example if you go to the Sauvignon Blanc section, there might be six kinds to try. They're all different prices and when you take the tasting of... More

went to this place twice in our 2 days in QT. cool concept for tasting a very wide variety of wines (even some whiskeys). Overall the tasting samples are a tad too expensive and it's not easy finding a really good wine among the many choices (realizing everyone has different tastes of course). The cheeseboards make for a great snack... More

We had a pre-dinner wine tasting session that ended up as a great way to meet some new people, enjoy some great wines, eat wonderful local produce and have a most enjoyable evening. Pre-dinner then became post dinner as we spent a good few hours enjoying this unique bar come cellar door. Highly recommended, but be careful, a short quick... More

We had a great moment at the winery. Exceptional to be able to choose and taste any of their 80 wines. Plus the cheese is making the perfect french style aperitive with local wines.

We had been given a voucher for The Winery from our accommodation provider. We only had 20minutes or so to visit but still worth it. A lot of the wines we had already tried previously from visiting local wineries so it was nice that they had a variety of other wines from around New Zealand to try. Service was great!

Came just prior to dinner and had a great time as a couple. We asked for some background (didn't know NZ made pilot Gris - it never gets to Canada) and got some very useful help from one of the staff. Spent an hour - tasted about 12 wines. Came away with a couple of favourites. Thought this was great!

Loved spending time in this place, thought I would of a $1000 dollar bill once I was done(it ended up being $50). Great knowledge, this is better than a bus tour.
