Bushmere Estate, Gisborne

5.0
#2 of 6 in Wineries in Gisborne
BUSHMERE Estate is 100% family owned. The family has been growing grapes for over 32 years. During this time there have

been huge changes in the industry, from the growing of bulk grapes to the quality wines that are now world class.

The vineyard is 17 hectares in the Central Valley Region of Gisborne District, growing mainly Chardonnay grapes, along with smaller plantings of Gewurztraminer, Viognier and Pinot Gris. The family also owns an interest in a nearby vineyard of 15 hectares, from where they source the fruit for their Merlot.

The name Bushmere Estate was chosen as the area was referred to as ‘Bushmere’ on old maps of the district. The Bushmere logo represents the three elements vital to the growing of grapes – earth, water and sun.

Bushmere Estate is open for appointment during the winter months for wine tastings.

    Week-end lunch treat. WOW the food is fantastic. We visited in January and returned in February. I even had the same meal and it was just as brilliant - Duck with forbidden salad. yum yum yum.  more »

    Anything I say won't be able to do our experience justice. Everything was amazing, the staff, the food, the experience, the wine. I drank Gewurztraminer which was really good. I sate salmon, they were kind enough to make it as a main. Delicious. But my favorites were the raviolis. who knew that they could be so delicious? And the prices were reasonable. 12 for Focaccia with dips, 34 for main, 8 per glass of wine, 14 for penna cotta wıth espresso ice cream and mascarpone.

    A really nice place for lunch. Mains were very good with excellent flavour combinations. But the dessert was exceptional. Amelia Sparkling Pinot Gris with lunch went down very well.
