Visited in October. Gave it 8.0/10. If you like pinot gris this is the place to come for a range of styles using this grape. Just a small operation but very friendly.

Over five years ago at another Renwick wineyard we mentioned we like Pinot Gris, so they suggested we visit Gibson Bridge. We're so glad they told us. Although they specialise in Pinot Gris, our favourite red wine in New Zealand is their Tresor Rouge. Their...More
