    What a memorable experience we had at Gibbston Valley Winery!

    We decided to stop over on a whim, as we had time before we went to Bannockburn.

    We were greeted by the friendliest staff - thank you Amy! We had coffee, cake, cheese, chocolates and a glass of their Diamond Pinot noir.

    As the board say 🍷+ 🧀 + 🍫 = 😀😀
    You won’t be disappointed!

    We visited at the end of May / 1st week of June 2021 and expected Queenstown to be very busy but, to OUR delight it was the opposite. It provided the opportunity for us to stroll through the mall and visit just about every shop. It was apparent that Covid 19 has adversely impacted the area and the "please-buy-from-me" look on many shop owner/manager faces left us feeling very guilty and sad.
    Some shops were still very expensive and tailored for tourists but, the majority of shops had excellent prices/deals/specials at the time and we certainly spent generously....The restaurants that we visited in the Mall continue to provide excellent service and food. Shop staff were still friendly and very helpful. So, overall, Queenstown Mall was very pleasant to visit and we sincerely wish all owners/managers/staff well.

    Pauline made the tasting experience at Chard Farm’s cellar door extra special. Not to mention the wines are sensational.

    Having driven past Peregrine Winery a few times during visits to the area in recent trips it was finally time to call in. The winery is set in a stunning part of the country and is beautifully landscaped to fit in with the countryside.
    The winery itself is a stunning piece of architecture and the cellar room looks straight into the barrel room through floor to ceiling glass. Our wine guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the wines we tried were superb…I’ve just received notification that my order has been picked up for delivery so am looking forward to adding them to my collection.
    I highly recommend calling in and trying these delicious organic wines!

    What an awesome experience, my children. Made candles. Such a fun experience choosing their own colours and scents.
    The food was so good and my lemon honey drink with the added honey and ginger so so good.
    Staff today were all so helpful and friendly going above and beyond for us even talking about some gold panning tips. Thanku

    Very helpful staff, plenty of information and unbiased advice. Really helpful both via email prior to arrival and in person once in Queenstown. Sandy in particular was great.

    We make sure we stop here every time we visit Queenstown - especially when biking around the lake - its the perfect way to finish a long ride before returning to town.

    Magnificent range of beers on tap, constantly changing - it would take a while and regular visits to do them all justice - something I can only dream of..

    They now have foodtrucks onsite which is great, but also sad because the food they used to make was amazing - noone can make jalepeno poppers like you guys.

    Look forward to coming down from Auckland next time :)

    This gallery has amazing paintings mainly of dogs, but also some cats. All paintings give a different take on our fury friends and are very funny & clever (originals & prints are for sale on site) I just wish i could afford one.

    Experiencing the old heritage building from the inside was truly amazing. It was serene and comforting. Candles were able to be lit and spend time in pray or just enjoy the beauty of the place. Definitely worth a look in.

    We had to find some indoor activities for our 3.5 year old daughter on a wet Queenstown day - and the Alpine Aqualand pool in Frankton turned out to be just the tonic!

    A nice range of pools - we spent our time in the main leisure pool (min 0.9 metres depth), and the neat 'lazy river' which our daughter loved floating around in the gentle current. Our baby son also got in the water for the first time ever in the shallow toddler pool. The family change room facilities were greatly appreciated. Excellent value in a town which is often quick to drain the wallet!
