We were so looking forward to our wine tasting and pizza that we enjoyed on our last visit. Unfortunately no pizza or food, $10 per person wine tasting with free wine tasting on purchase of 3 bottle of wine.... Sad to see so many changes from a great place to visit.

This winery is a labour of Love, It is on the wrong side of the valley for all sorts of reasons but the wine maker has created the most enduring wine. This is not Jug wine! Their last Sauvignon blanc vines that yielded only every few years produced this liquid of the gods for a last time as they could... More

We visited Waitiri Creek on the Queenstown wine trail. This was the second time we had been to Waitiri and to be honest I was more impressed the first time than the second. Don't get me wrong the man taking the tour was lovely and so friendly I just found he rushed through the wines a little bit so I... More

There is something about this winery that keeps drawing you back. Yes, the ambience is superb with its old church giving it an unforgetable style and charisma. It is not as big and commercial as some of the neighbouring wineries and that gives it a more relaxed feel. But it is really the quality of the wine and the warm,... More

Visited as part of a wine tour. Lovely little venue in a former Presbyterian Church. The scenery surrounding the building is superb. The staff were friendly and gave lots of useful information. Tasted a range of wines, but did like the Pinot Gris the best.

Lovely small winery not far out of central Queenstown. The winery and its famous pizzas are located in a beautiful valley. The building itself is a gorgeous old wooden church. The staff are friendly, helpful and their knowledge of the products is great. There are 4 wines offered for tasting. Personally I love all of them. The only downfall is... More

This is a place we never fail to make a return visit to when we visit NZ the surroundings, food ,wine and informative talks on how the grapes have fair to make this season wine never fails to be informative. We can never go away without ordering some wine to relive the experience on our return home

We already knew their wines were great, so that was no surprise - love their Pinot Gris. Pizza was not cheap - but the tastiest I have had anywhere. Just glorious surroundings - if you pick a good day to sit outside, it is easy to spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing in the Otago sunshine. Don't miss this... More

We visited Waitiri Creek as part of the Queenstown Wine Trail tour. We were lucky enough to have Jason Moss explain Waitiri's wines and he was very interesting both to wine newbies and the very experienced in our group. The wine itself was very good, and though we enjoyed all the wines we tasted, the chardonnay and pinot noir really... More
