When we opened The Winery in central Queenstown in May 2005 we were one of the world's first and largest wine tasting experiences. With a focus on bringing the best of New Zealand wine to one location, The Winery's reputation grew and in 2019 we were recognised by TripAdvisor in the World's Top 10 wine experiences People's Choice Awards.

In February 2020 The Winery opened a second store in Arrowtown, taking the experience to the next level with more whisky and gin tastings, our famous cheeseboards with a new tapas menu and a decor designed for the relaxation and comfort of our customers.

Wines By Region

New Zealand's wine regions extend over 1,100 kilometers from the subtropical climate in Northland (35° S) down the country to the world’s most southerly vineyards in Central Otago (45° S).

With the exception of Central Otago, New Zealand's vineyards benefit from the moderating effect of our maritime climate with long sunshine hours and nights cooled by sea breezes.  Even the vineyards of Central Otago are less than 120km from the coast.

Most of our wine regions are on the eastern coastlines of the North and South Islands.  Many are sheltered in the rain shadow of mountains to the west and each region has its own unique soils and climatic conditions. 

Within these diverse regions, sub-regional characteristics are highlighted in wines that are distinguished as being not just from the region, but also from a sub-region and terroir.
