WINES FROM THE HEART OF GIBBSTON
There are a few yarns going round the wine world about our place - the Gibbston Valley, deep in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Legend now has it that it's one of the better spots to grow Pinot Noir grapes, so almost twenty years ago we sent the last of the sheep off to greener paddocks, and planted some vines...
Turns out the dry stony soil that made our pasture so poor grows pretty good grapes. Seemed like we were onto a good thing, so we planted more vines, trying a few different varieties. Now we have five different grape varietals growing happily on our single estate vineyard, a stone's throw away from our Cellar Door.
We're pretty proud of our little patch and the wines we produce. We'd love to share them with you and your friends - come and visit us in Gibbston at our Cellar Door and experience the hospitality we're known for.
