We visited three wineries on an afternoon tour out of Queenstown. Gibbston Valley was the largest and most institutional (but still great), Mt Rosa was disorganized and 'flat', and Brennan was the most friendly and one we felt most comfortable in (and where we bought the most wine, too!). They also have nice food plates as well as a good... More

This was probably the best rating experience we had in central otago. Being able to taste different vintages in the same wine, as well as different treatments of the same grape was very worthwhile.

Loved my recent trip to Brennan wines. It was recommended to us by one of the waitresses at the Blue Kanu restaurant and I am so pleased we visited. The owner is very charismatic. The setting is gorgeous – views of the mountains over the vineyards. I noticed that there was plenty of platters available to order, although we did... More

We had been to several wineries between Clyde and Queenstown and were wondering where the good Pinot Noir was when we happened upon this small winery. Okay, we are a bit wine snobs having lived in California for several years. Brennan wines are excellent wines, good enough to buy and take home. The whole tasting, small plates, and the beautiful...

Good wine is not cheap to produce so I was happy to pay to taste these excellent wines. I think fee refunded against value of wines purchased but tasting fee also reduces the obligation to buy if you're travelling light.

This is a lovely setting for their winery, very friendly and knowledgable staff, and learned there wine had been featured on an episode of "Big Bang Theory". Quiet and most importantly the wine is very tasty.

After a few busy and industrial wineries of the valley visiting Brennan was the most pleasant one. The owner answered all our questions and explained the whole process and specific of NZ wines. Tasted lots of various wines and prices are very reasonable too, especially given the service you get there.
