OVERVIEW

The Gibbston Valley, also known as the 'Valley of the Vines', is one of the most beautiful wine growing areas in New Zealand. Surrounded by rugged mountain scenery, vineyards are dotted along the Kawarau River Gorge.
This high altitude area is subject to cold winters, hot dry summers and a huge night-to-day temperature range. These challenging conditions have led to consistently superb wines, worldwide recognition and an avalanche of international awards. More than 70% of the grapes grown here are Pinot Noir; other varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Enjoy a great afternoon out exploring Gibbston Valley and tasting some of the finest wine New Zealand has to offer.
