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.

We've visited here twice and both times the service and wine tasting was exceptional. Prices for all levels depending on what you are looking for. A boutique winery that is welcoming - do visit!
