Gibbston Valley Winery

The most well known winery in the valley. Enjoy their cheesery or visit the cellar door for a tasting. Beautiful outdoor area to be enjoyed.

Cargo Brewery

Based in an old church, backing onto a large grass area stacked with games, Cargo is a great spot to hang out. It is a real highlight for both the wine and the beer drinker.

Peregrine Winery

Elegant and professional. Peregrine is a place for tastings only. They don’t serve food or wine by the glass here.

Mt Rosa

Full of personality, Mt Rosa is located at the end of the valley and is certainly worth the effort to visit. Tastings here are extensive, so allow approximately 40min.

Brennan Wines

A great place to visit, Brennan is located at the end of the valley. While you’re here, have a go at petanque.
