Two friends & I had lunch here & were very impressed with the food, the service & the wine. We had expected it to be rather higher in cost than other local places, but we were very surprised at the reasonable cost. A glass of excellent wine @ $8!! We pay $10 to $12 in Dunedin restaurants.

Have dined at Gibbston Valley on about 5 occasions and the food is consistently very good. Service is friendly and efficient and the ambiance both inside and out is welcoming and comfortable and of course the Pinot's are excellent. We like the School House Pinot.

Got the return shuttle from queenstown to Gibston valley which took us on a picturesque drive through Arrowtown to the vineyard. We were seated and served by the lovely Gwen, who was very knowledgable about the wines and helpful with food suggestions. We then went on a cave tour conducted by Duncan who clearly knew what he was talking about,... More

Stopped here to do some wine tasting and stayed for a light lunch. We shared a lovely platter in the garden area on a sunny day. The Rose wine was also lovely. Service was excellent.

After a trip to Wanaka we decided to have some nice lunch at Gibbston Valley Winery. It seemed our timing was perfect as we hadn't realised they opened later on Anzac Day. As we drove up to the driveway, they opened the gates for us. We ordered some lunch and had a nice browse through their awesome products. Honeys, chutneys,... More

I recommend visiting Gibbston Valley to taste wines rather than for the dining experience. A limited menu with very few options, along with a restaurant very much in need of a makeover didn't make this one of our better dining experiences.
