Superb day in Wine Country!

I enjoyed a superb day in Gibbston Valley Winery! I got the bus at 10am from downtown Queenstown and we arrived around 10:40. We saw the bungy bridge along the way and I knew I wanted to go back there. First I biked with another couple to a few wineries and then came back for a wonderful 2 course lunch. It was well worth the money! The choices were an appetizer and a main course or a main course and a dessert. I choose the main chicken course and the delicious chocolate dessert with salted caramel ice cream! It was divine! They were both paired with wines, chardonnay and pinot noir. Then we had a very informative tour of the wine cave (largest one in NZ!) and tasted a few more wines. Then we were able to walk around the gift shop and chesery until our bus came at 5pm. Perfect time to do everything leisurely.

Best day ever!

We had high expectations and Gibbston Valley did not disappoint. Our driver was great and knew a lot about the area, he gave us advice on the best time to be back for lunch and how much time we should allow for to get around as many vineyards as possible. We were a party of three and booked the full-day (which I would highly recommend to make the most of what is on offer) The cycling covered easy terrain, the tracks are excellent - if anything the weather was very hot and there is not much shade along the cycle tracks but this didn't matter as the vineyards are very strategically placed. Very enjoyable day and sampled many of the wines available... Make sure you stop in to the Gibbston Tavern for beer tasting (and a rest!) Everyone that we came across along the way were very friendly and welcoming. We tagged on the two course lunch at Gibbston Valley which was amazing - fantastic selection of wines and the food was delicious. Again the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!

Lovely Go Your Own Pace Day

This was our first activity in the Queenstown area and it was a wonderful start. The river is absolutely beautiful and you can hit a lot of spots on the tour by bike. It's fairly self-directed, which we enjoyed. Gibston Valley Winery and the cave are fantastic. Very generous sampling. Bindy is an absolute legend. Would recommend!

Ride & Wine Cave Tour --

Locals visiting our beautiful country as 2 on this tour of 13. ^ from the states due to Milford track being close 4 from uk & 1 not sure.Pick as per instructions clear from Queenstown.Informative bus tour to Gibbston Valley. For us first up cave tour 14c / 75 per cent humidity all year round. Tried a variety of wines inside the cave before picking up a traditional v e-bike.Bikes were great headed towards peregrine wines for a tasting. After a valuable short trip to Rockburn for $10 each tasting of many fantastic wines. Assistant wine maker Scott Aliprandi on duty for the day.Luckily we can purchase Rockburn at most stores in Auckland so no need to purchase on the day. Sweeping back to Gibbston Valley wines for a bite to eat, tasting of wines before catching bus back to Queenstown via Arrowtown & hate to say it observing Micheal Hill Golf course. Absolute nice day out. My partner joined up to Gibbston Valley wine club as a result of this trip. Can't wait to purchase 2 x Bottles 2017 Rockburn Pinot Noir for my pending birthday. Not part of our tour but did visit carrick wines for lunch / platter for a superb lunch. If you are looking for a drink now pinot noir .. Never go wrong with Akarua Rua. Wooing tree in Cronwell is great . However keep away from Mt Diificulty visited this place 3 times over the last 7 years there ego is better than there !!!
