Annual Grape Harvest in Gibbston Valley
It’s an exciting and magical time in Gibbston Valley… With shades of red, orange, pink and yellow- the fruits of everyone’s hard labour are ripe for picking and our annual Harvest is upon us!

This is an experience like no other where you can become acquainted with wine making from the inside… This experience includes a vineyard/winery tour, a special tasting session of vintage variation in Central Otago, two relaxing nights for two in our beautiful vineyard cottages and a special three-course harvest platter dinner on the Saturday evening.
Queenstown Escapes in a Vineyard Setting

Harvest is a very special time in Gibbston, all the hard efforts of the year are hanging on the vines, showcasing and exemplifying all the best the summer had to offer.
