About
In the 1860’s, Thomas Oliver, Joseph Knowles and James Simmonds among thousands of European men came to Central Otago for the gold rush. They formed the Earnscleugh Grand Junction Mining Company and extracted gold from their claim between the Clutha River and farmland in the Earnscleugh Valley. Water was vital to the recovery of gold from the gravel so Thomas Oliver and Joseph Knowles also invested in water. They cut water races from the Fraser River through Earnscleugh Valley channelling the water into the claims of other miners. During the 1900’s, the highly fertile farmland that was part of the three miners claim was planted in asparagus and then apple trees. Grapevines were first planted in 2000. The vineyard is named after these men who made their mark on the Earnscleugh landscape more than a century ago. Our Three Miners wines are available to try and buy at our Cellar Door within the Hilton Resort and Spa, Queenstown. We also have a small menu and all wines by the glass.

Great cellar door - a must visit
Jan 2020 • Couples
The Three Miners cellar door is located in a lovely bar inside the Queenstown Hilton Resort and Spa in Kelvin Heights. It is just a short and inexpensive water taxi ride across the lake from the Queenstown wharf so you get to experience the lake as a bonus. The wines were fabulous and the charming wine maker Ngarita was on hand to ask all our questions and talk us through the tasting. It is a great way to taste excellent wines from Three Miners located in the Alexandra region and some other wineries local to that area, a bonus if you don’t have time to visit in person. Don’t miss this if you are a wine lover.

Great service and lovely wines
Dec 2019
We googled nearest wineries to Queenstown and Three Miners came up. Their tasting room is situated within the Hilton Hotel and has a lovely balcony overlooking the lake where we sat and enjoyed our tasting. The owner, Kirstin, served us and was really delightful and so enthusiastic about her wine, we absolutely loved the Rose! We also ordered a vineyard platter to share and it was packed with great local cheeses and meat. Overall a great tasting experience.
