  • Loved this! You get a glass and can self-serve about 100 local wines, as well as a few whiskeys and sakes. You can choose different sizes (so have just a taste or a full glass) and then you just settle your tab at the end. I think I tried about 8 wines and a whisky and ended up paying about $50, which I thought was fair. Lots of comfortable seating inside as well, a comfy place for a drink and a chat, and they also had cheese platters that looked amazing (though I didn’t get to try these). Worth a visit for any wine lover!
  • Definitely try a cheese plate while wine tasting! The honeycomb is fantastic! Would definitely return 💖
  • We came here after touring a lot of the wineries in the region. If you’re in for the actual wine tasting, just come here. Very smooth process to taste their wines (and whiskies and sakes) and great cheese and meat platters. They have 80+ wine varieties.
  • Great way to taste various wines in a very convenient central Queenstown location. Amazing cheese platters to accompany the wine tasting and you can buy nice souvenir gifts to take back home.
  • We had a quick stop in to try some whiskey and port. The place is really nice, perfect for a date if you're looking for that kind of thing. There are a ton of options and lots of gifts if you're looking for something for someone back home.
