    The most perfect Sunday
    We visited after seeing an ad at Dorothy Browns, and so glad we did. We did didn’t have a booking but they kindly managed a table outside, for a perfect Sunday afternoon lunch. We had an exceptional tasting, - knowledgeable, fun and delicious! We bought, and also enjoyed a bottle with our platter. Sitting out on the veranda, beautiful view, food and wine, a memory that will last. On top of that the people were so good, hospitality personified!
    What could be better on a Sunday afternoon - food, wine and great views! Thanks :)

    Very nice place for wine tasting and lunch
    Great setting, great wine, great food, great staff. We have been at a number of vineyards and wine tastings and this has been the best. The quality of the wine was outstanding. We especially liked the whites. The woman who explained each pour was very knowledgeable and very nice. The owner stopped by for the final pour and was very friendly and you could see they he really liked entertaining his guests. The food was very food and paired very well with the wine. We ordered some wine to be shipped home.
    Yes Guy is an entertainer for sure (hope you didn't have to suffer too many of his jokes) Thank you!

    Exceptional!
    We visited this winery as part of our Wanahaka tour. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with such warmth and shown to our table. We sampled whites, reds and treated to a mulled wine and educated in harvest times for each wines as to how it has shaped the flavour. We had a beautiful cheese platter with accompanying condiments which was delicious. Thank you so much for the memorable experience

    Highly Recommended
    This is only a very small winery, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality & charm. We sampled seven of their wines, including a hot sangria-like conconcoction. All the wines were delicious, and were served by a very helpful, knowledgeable & humorous chap. A really nice experience. Highly recommended.

    Thank you Anna!
    We came to Mount Rosa this afternoon (June 24th) and had Anna from Minnesota as our server. Normally she works the vines but said she works on the weekends in house. She did an amazing job and had such great knowledge of wines! We had a great time. She catered for about 5 other tables at the same time. Amazing job and an asset to your company. Thank you Anna. Also amazing wines and all staff very friendly!

    A sensational afternoon’s wine tasting.
    We had a wonderful afternoon tasting the beautiful wines and cheeses on offer at Mt Rosa. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable and we were looked after expertly by Bindy. She was a breath of fresh air, very friendly and happy to spend time sharing her knowledge of wines with us. We loved it!

The winery is set in a wonderful location and enjoyable but challenging bike ride from the beginning of the valley, having booked in Queenstown. The wines and food were delicious and the service from our waitress Bindi was exceptional!! She was knowledgeable, accommodating and so helpful with suggestions and service she is clearly a credit to the business! Thank you very much Bindi!!

Nice location. We had two shared platters between 4. Needed more bread/crackers to accompany it. Staff attentive and well trained in the spiel for the wine tasting. Wasn't a fan of the Pinot Noir.

Mt Rosa was the third winery we visited in NZ and we're so glad we did. From the moment we arrived the atmosphere was inviting, homey and welcoming. The staff were friendly and approachable but not overbearing.

We chose to sit outside on the deck overlooking the vines and mountains and it could not have been a more picturesque spot to have a light lunch and wine tasting. The food was delicious and the staff were incredibly knowledgeable about the wines, giving us a nice explanation of each wine before we tasted it.

We visited at a very busy time and the wine tasting was a little bit on the slower side to begin with however it didn't matter when we were in such lovely surrounds (and the food came out very quickly).

We could not recommend this winery enough and would 100% return here over some of the other wineries in the region.

Just the best place for a winery lunch in the Gibbston Valley.
Great service and a great atmosphere in their new cellar door restaurant.
The Salmon platter was superb.
Try it with their delicious Pinot Blanc, you wont be disappointed.

We only stopped by the winery to pick up Bindy (Wine guru) on a fantastic helicopter tasting tour. This is the best thing ever. An awesome Xmas present that we gave each other. Her knowledge of not only local wines, but internationally also was brilliant. We learnt so much from her. We have been on many wine tastings, this tops them all. The wines that she gave us to tase and descriptions about them was top class. Thank you so much Bindy, we had an absolute blast.

Wonderful first visit to arguably one of Central Otago’s best cellar doors. From the spectacular setting overlooking the lower Gibbston Valley to the exceptional customer service and superb wines, I can certainly see why my friends recommended this as a must do on a wine tour of the area! Bindy was especially helpful and highly knowledgeable of the wines on offer, going the extra mile to ensure we had an enjoyable experience on a sunny Gibbston afternoon. Her passion for the winery, their offering and the wider industry was obvious and enhanced our experience.
Will definitely be back again, hopefully soon! Thanks again Bindy and team!

Stunning location, with welcoming staff. Great food, wine and service. Lots of space outside to relax in on a sunny day. The rose is definitely worth trying.
