The mini tour around the winery was interesting. My advice would be to ask all the questions you can think of to get the most out of it. Afterwards we had a couple of snack items from the restaurant. The blue cod pate (I think it was) was amazing and worth the ten something bucks to share between two.

We stopped here because my mother in law heard good reviews, the place is beautiful but the food is to be desired. We got a light lunch, the largest platter $30 and a sandwich, the platter was measly, barely enough for one person. A selection of a few slithers of cheese and a few mediocre cold cuts. It had about... More

We appreciate your review, and we apologise that your experience didn’t meet your expectations. The charcuturie platter that you ordered from our Vintner's Kitchen is a very popular item. However, it's meant to be a lighter option to pair with wine and not a full main, like the more hearty Harvest Platter we offer in our restaurant. The platter uses... More

On a warm and sunny winter's day we enjoyed both the cheese shop and the winery. We sat outside at the former and enjoyed the cheese plate and a coffee whilst at the winery we had the wine and chocolate plate. Both were excellent and the service was very friendly.

Enjoyed an excellent lunch with a warm winter feel with fresh quail. Excellent service and enjoyed wine tasting through the meal. Naturally left with a few bottles of our favourite. The cheese shop next door was also well worth a visit!

We loved the region and eating here was a standout. We booked ahead (fortunately) as they are popular - we took a day to explore the wine region and wanted to have a nice relaxed lunch. The servings were generous and quite delicious

We visited with a group for the wine tour followed by a couple of glasses in the cellar. The tour was very good and i appreciated the cheese matching and explanations. We then went for our glasses of wine. I hadn't had lunch so was looking forward to a platter to share from the vintners kitchen. Disappointing! The service was... More

We joined 4 friends and enjoyed a superb afternoon experience at Gibbston Valley Winery restaurant. We sampled the Duck, Lamb, Chicken, pasta and salads further enhanced by a smooth 2013 La Dulcinee Pinos Gris. The atmosphere was friendly, the décor & views very Otago. I recommend you make the effort to stop and try for yourself.

Again, they always surprise us, we always have the platter for two, and it is always perfect, things on that plate you don't have at home, presented beautifully, the stuffed vine leaves are to die for, the apricot chutney is so good, we love it. The staff here are always great, friendly and knowledgeable, and on the ball at all... More
