Where sublime food is expertly matched with award-winning wine, you'll be happy to hear that Gibbston Valley Winery is a mere 25 minutes away from bustling Queenstown.
Surrounded by rows upon rows of juicy grapes, towering mountains, and rolling pastures, Gibbston Valley is a stunning retreat if you fancy escaping the crowds. Inside you'll find a bright, bistro-style restaurant. Think warm oak furnishings, minimal (yet classy) decor and rustic wine barrels that remind you why you're really here!
When it comes to food, Gibbston's home-grown fare takes centre stage. Pair it with innovative ingredients and some serious culinary expertise and you have yourself a dinner you won't forget! Start your journey with wild rabbit lasagne laced with decadent Romano truffle or keep it delicate with some melt-in-the-mouth cured salmon. Move on to some local specialities, like Southland scotch fillet or Cardrona lamb that's slow-cooked for maximum depth of flavour.
And with Central Otago at their doorstep, we don't need to tell you how tantalisingly brilliant their wine collection is. With four fantastic ranges to choose from, there's a glass for every dish, every pallet, and every taste bud.
