Standby for 2019 Dates!
After a beautiful round of Winemaker Weekends in Winter 2018, we are now busy drinking wine on Gibbston's long summer days.
Next Winter, you can join us in Gibbston for a unique experience completely focussed on the beauty of our wine partners and their produce. With several events throughout each weekend, you can simply enjoy the peace and quiet of our piece of paradise, or head off on an adventure (our team can book you an abundance of options) or head up the mountains to ski the day away before returning to our cosy cottages for some all important wine time. For futher information on the 2019 Winemaker Weekends, please email the events team.
Picture this… Embracing quality time with your partner or friend, surrounded by vines & snow capped mountains with a glass of Premium Otago Pinot in hand sharing stories and giggling after a day exploring the wonders of Winter in the Queenstown area.
In 2019, we will be hosting six exclusive Winemaker Weekends at Kinross Cottages in Gibbston Valley, Central Otago, the most southern wine making region in the world.
