Pros Interesting wines with some unusual varietals. Knowledgeable staff. Nice outdoor seating with petanque. Platter options that looked good. Close to Queenstown Cons $15 to taste 6 wines or $20 for the range (refundable with a purchase of 2 x bottles) seems a tad high if you are not interested in the varietals.

Beautiful setting to try the wines. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Not used to having to pay for wine tastings though, we often go wine tasting in Australia and this always free!

Brennan Wines is in the Gibbston Valley and is well worth a visit if you like your Pinots. They won a gold medal for their 2014 B2 Pinot and in my opinion their 2010 and 2011 Pinots are even better. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Jose and a delicious platter at a picnic table whilst we admired the views.... More

I thought this was a lovely spot. Beautiful outdoor picnic areas and some nice wines. The pick of the wines for us was the rose, but the gerwertz blend and top of the range Pinot also held their own. If you are on the road and looking for a picnic spot this would be a must do.

After trying Brennan wines in Auckland I sought out this little gem of a winery to try the whole range. Just 30 minutes or so drive from queenstown. Josie is a fantastic host, very knowledgable and accomodating. Don't miss this winery!

Here you can taste 8 different wines for just 12NZD or use it to buy any of they're fabulous wines. They experiment and try with new grapes which makes this winery very unique in its variety. Also, the lady that guided us through the tastings was very professional and informative and even recommended things to do in the area. We... More

Fantastic location, a quiet picnic setting amongst the vines, surrounded by snow capped mountain peaks. Superb wines, the Pinots are especially moorish, substantial picnic platters, even a friendly game of Bouche. It doesn't get much better.

This is a great vineyard we love their Pinot Noir Sean and his team really know what they are doing. Yesterday we went to the launch of their 2016 Moscato. The wine is perfect for hot lazy days and went very well with the sublime plater that was served. The wine is “dryer” than I have tasted elsewhere but it... More
