I thought this was a lovely spot. Beautiful outdoor picnic areas and some nice wines. The pick of the wines for us was the rose, but the gerwertz blend and top of the range Pinot also held their own. If you are on the road and looking for a picnic spot this would be a must do.

After trying Brennan wines in Auckland I sought out this little gem of a winery to try the whole range. Just 30 minutes or so drive from queenstown. Josie is a fantastic host, very knowledgable and accomodating. Don't miss this winery!

Here you can taste 8 different wines for just 12NZD or use it to buy any of they're fabulous wines. They experiment and try with new grapes which makes this winery very unique in its variety. Also, the lady that guided us through the tastings was very professional and informative and even recommended things to do in the area. We... More

Fantastic location, a quiet picnic setting amongst the vines, surrounded by snow capped mountain peaks. Superb wines, the Pinots are especially moorish, substantial picnic platters, even a friendly game of Bouche. It doesn't get much better.

This is a great vineyard we love their Pinot Noir Sean and his team really know what they are doing. Yesterday we went to the launch of their 2016 Moscato. The wine is perfect for hot lazy days and went very well with the sublime plater that was served. The wine is “dryer” than I have tasted elsewhere but it... More

Some really interesting varietals on offer, Tempranillo and Gewurtztraminer were definite stand outs. Pinots were also fab! Highlight for us was the time spent talking to our most gracious and knowledgable tasting guide. Awesome spot!

I recently visited Brennan Wines for the first time as part of a wine tour. I was very impressed with the wide variety of wines on offer, including some different varietals outside of the norm. Our host was very informative and interesting. Nothing was a bother, we were able to take our time, ask a lot of questions and generally... More

Brennan Wines has been our favorite for a few years now, popped in to restock our wine cabinet as we don't live in the area anymore. Fiona was amazing, re-familiarized us with many old favorites. Needless to say we left with a full car boot.

We stopped off here and did a wine tasting with a delicious cheese platter. The fire was roaring, the lovely gentleman was very knowledgeable about the wines, and it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
