Situated east of Queenstown along the spectacular Kawarau Gorge, Gibbston hasn’t looked back since the first commercial bottling in 1987. The highest sub-region, it’s cooler climate and north-facing hillside vines ripen later than neighbouring sub-regions, giving lighter though still intense wines.

What our customers say

“A big thank you to Heidi for a fantastic wine tour in Queenstown’s beautiful Otago wine region. The tour was fun, friendly and informative with in-van entertainment with a fantastic selection of local boutique wineries. A highlight was the Gibbston cave tour and developing a new appreciation for Pinot Gris!
