What travelers say:

First of all, the winery also has a pasture feel. The vast grassland is out of sight, and the grape plantations are rarely seen. Under the Portuguese shelf is the winery winery and dining place, the environment is impeccable.

Additional Information

Introduction

Back in the early 1980s, Alan Brady, founder of Gibbston Estate, planted a vine in the Gibbston area with a passion for winemaking. In this land at 45° south latitude, the interaction of sunlight, soil and climate has created the miracle of wine growing in the region. From this planting experience, Alan also realized the patience and hard work it takes to cultivate great wine fruit. Only certain grape varieties can survive in the cooler local climates. In 1983, Alan founded HomeBlock, the vineyard of the Gitten Estate, and in 1987 produced the estate's first commercial vintage wines, and the wines he produced immediately gained huge recognition. Then, batch after batch of imitators followed, following in the footsteps of the pioneers. Since the founder Alan planted the vines here, Gitten Estate has worked tirelessly to improve various services and environmental facilities in the following decades. From dining experiences to wine cellar visits, specialty purchases to cycling tours, Gitten Estate has become a worldwide tourist destination and a place to experience pure New Zealand wine. The winery has a large-scale wine cellar in New Zealand. The winery's explanation will take you to the early vineyards in Central Otago, and learn about the planting of grapes and wine making while seeing the style of the HomeBlock vineyard. process, and a glimpse into the day-to-day work of a winemaker. The winery also has a boutique restaurant, where the valley is quiet and beautiful, and the wonderful combination of beautiful scenery and delicious food and wine will bring you an unforgettable dining experience.
