“Do yourself a favour and visit this winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Make sure you book ahead for lunch, but the views and the food are worth it, not to mention the wines. We ate all over Queenstown and the region for 8 days, and one of the top 3 meals was at Mt Diff. The wines are delicious as well.

“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A great setting with stunning views from the restaurant. Best Pinot Noir in my opinion from Central Otago and also one of the best meals (highly recommend the duck) on our travels. Excellent service and efficient follow up from order made at Cellar Door.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We had a wonderful 'Kiwi' welcome and a superb meal accompanied by the excellent Mt. Difficulty wines. This is a must if you are in the area but prior booking is essential.
