Gibbston Valley Winery

Queenstown

Located in beautiful Central Otago wine country, Gibbston Valley is a picturesque location for any function or event. The surrounding vines create an unbeatable ambient and tranquil setting for you and your delegates.



Our passion for quality is reflected in everything we offer at Gibbston Valley, from our award-winning wines, to the superb facilities that we offer; from an intimate setting for two, incentive programs and product launches, to bespoke dining experiences and classes in wine blending. Our in-house designers can put together menus and artwork that reflect your business’s visual identity and the décor of our venues can be completely transformed with staging, lighting, foliage, soft furnishings and decorations. Wine Cave: Carved deep into a mountain side, and lined with more than 400 French oak barrels of aging wine, our wine cave will make any occasion a memorable event. Its atmospheric ambiance makes it particularly popular for hosting an elegant dinner for up to 28 guests. The cave also makes a great venue for standing guests to enjoy canapes and bubbles. Wine Vault: The Wine Vault is a spacious venue with an abundance of natural light. The room’s elegant neutral décor is beautiful as is, or can easily be themed to suit any occasion. Vaulted ceilings lend themselves well to hanging flower arrangements or lighting. The room holds a special place in our history as it’s where Gibbston Valley founder, Alan Brady, stored some of the first barrels of Pinot Noir produced. Suitable for up to 80 guests in this space alone, an additional marquee attached to large opening doors, allows your event to flow into our courtyard. Total capacity including courtyard 110. Winery Restaurant: Our Winery Restaurant features a simple, rustic décor that radiates warmth and comfort. This venue offers the most versatility and can include access to our lounge area, Cellar Door and courtyard area with additional outdoor seating, giving your guests lots of room to mix and mingle. The restaurant’s capacity for a seated event is 80 guests. For summer events the courtyard area is well suited for garden games, whilst the Cellar Door, with its leather seating and fireplace, provides a warming ambiance for winter events. Exquisite Food & Wine: Our renowned Executive Chef, Anthony Gradiska, will craft your menu to perfectly suit your event’s requirements. Our menus use organic and sustainably produced ingredients, grown in the chef’s garden or carefully selected from local artisan suppliers. Your menu will be paired beautifully with our premium, handcrafted wines and to make each and every ingredient sing. Menu is seasonal & dietary requirements can be incorporated. We also serve a great selection of beer and non-alcoholic beverages. Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa The Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa is a unique and luxurious venue.
