Venues on offer in the Gibbston Valley: Wineries, beer and cheese.
A stunning setting down a historic gravel road. The effort made to visit Chard Farm is always worthwhile.
A stunning setting with a lovely outdoor area to enjoy. Great food and wine are available here.
|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.
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.
Elegant and professional. Peregrine is a place for tastings only. They don’t serve food or wine by the glass here.
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.
A great place to visit, Brennan is located at the end of the valley. While you’re here, have a go at petanque.
Our standard pick up location for a reason. The tavern is full of character and serves delicious wood fire pizza. A great place to relax.
