This was the nicest winery we visited in the Queenstown region during our trip. It's nestled amongst the mountains away from the road and the picnic tables are surrounded by vines. We had a toddler with us so appreciated the open grass, petanque gravel and toy basket which was inside the tasting room. The platter was amazing, by far the... More

We just came back from fantastic New Zealand trip. Visiting Brennan Wines was an unexpected activity. It was the day when we headed for Lake Tekapo from Queenstown. We had a trouble of left rear tire from our rental car. The tire was delaminate and unable to run anymore. We decided to move to the closest winery which is Brennan... More

This winery is tucked away on the back road of Mt Rosa. It's not hard to find but you have to hunt it down. The wines are superb as is the service. Particularly I'd like to mention Jenna who really new her wine and was extremely knowledgable and helpful to us. There are some picnic areas, so take a lunch... More

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.

We went with a van full of neighbors what a great afternoon. We started off with wine tasting and a good commentary of the wines. After trying a number of lovely wines we finished with platters. What a great variety of first class food everyone thoroughly enjoying it. Most of us purchased a bottle before leaving. Would I return.... most... More

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...

After a tasting at Peregrine we heading up to Brennan's knowing the wine was fabulous and there was a chance to grab a bite to eat for lunch. We did a fabulous wine tasting then sat in the sun and had a fabulous platter - as two hungry travellers with good appetites and gourmet tendancies we were REALLY impressed both... More
