As you approach the vineyard, you pass through grape vines in regimented rows, with rugged mountains rising up on either side. The winery primarily produces varieties of pinot noir, which you can sample in a fun, informal setting among the oak barrels, then pick up a bottle or two to take home. Families with children are welcome here. To make the most of your visit, take a picnic to enjoy on the lawn while drinking in the spectacular views.

  • Be careful if you're biking here on a windy day. Once you arrive you'll be delighted by the wine. The tasting is based on donation.
  • Fantastic wines in a truly stunning setting. Possibly the best driveway in the world!
  • Maybe the most picturesque vineyard in all of Aotearoa, and beautiful wines to match.
  • Amazing wine. Wonderful and friendly staff! We purchased a few bottles from here
  • Great wines and nice to try their unoaked Chardonnay which is really good! It's not just about the reds! But don't be an idiot and try park on the road there so you can take a photo...

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
