Kinross’ purpose built cellar door celebrates five of Central Otago’s best known wineries and is the highlight of a visit to Gibbston either by car or on the Queenstown cycle trail.

“Kinross is a great place to sample wines ranging from world-beating classics to small boutique gems all in one place,” says CEO Nicky Sygrove. “It is home to Coal Pit, Hawkshead, Valli, Wild Irishman and our own Kinross label. The wine tasting experience we offer is a journey into the history and characters behind the wines, perfect for those looking to learn more about what makes Central Otago wine so sought after the world over.”

The winery restaurant has a sharing style menu along with pizza and platter options and seating either indoors or al fresco in a covered wine garden.

“Visitors can settle in for a long lunch in the sunshine enjoying the outdoor wine garden and relaxed lawn area which has been expanded this summer to provide more space,” says Nicky. “The Sunday Live Music Series over summer is a big hit with locals and for those who want to stay longer our boutique vineyard hotel offers cottage stays amongst the vines and a chance to relax in a hot tub below the stars.”
