  • The Winery have a selection of high end wines like Te Mata and Penfolds Grange for sampling. That means for a small amount of money (Grange was sampling at $35 per 25ml) you get to try one of the most prestigious wines. They have a healthy selection of wines from NZ as well as internationally and the service staff are helpful. If you are a keen wine drinker, The Winery will keep you entertained for hours. If you are not particular about your vinos, you will be better off getting your bottles from nearby supermarkets like Four Square because the prices are generally cheaper. However, if you are looking for good labels, The Winery will probably offer you some of the best in Queenstown.
  • Great way to try all the wines New Zealand has to offer, in a relaxed and affordable way. Nice calm and cozy atmosphere. Great way to spend an evening
  • A really fun, low pressure wine tasting experience with more options than any other winery I've ever been to. A great place to taste wines with a group of friends without having to listen to a sommelier. They don't have very many food options but the cheese platter was delicious.
  • A lot of wine choice. Outdoor seating. Nice and relax.
  • Awesome place to drop in for a pre-dinner drink and a cheese platter after a day on the slopes or just about anytime!! Staff (especially Oliver) were awesome, showing us around and sharing information on the different wines on show. We went back twice in our short stay!
