Winter Bike The Wineries 3/4 Day begins with an 11 AM pick-up from our shop (3 Searle Lane, Queenstown) and a shuttle to our new bike-hub at Arrow Junction (7 km away from Arrowtown).
After bike fitting and helpful winery information, you’re free to set off riding. The first 6 km of the bike trail follows a gorge along the Arrow river out to the Kawarau Suspension Bridge – home of the world famous bungy jump. From there you’ll spend the afternoon biking at your leisure along the Gibbston River Trail. Use our winery map to visit as many of the venues as you wish, with time to sample what this world-class wine region has to offer. There are cellar doors, a tavern, a brewery, and even a cheesery, all linked together by a spectacular, easy-riding bike trail.
We will pick you up from your venue of choice for the shuttle back to Queenstown. Total biking distance is 12 – 17 km, depending on how many wineries you wish to visit.

E-Bikes Are Recommended
We are yet to hear anyone say “I wish I never upgraded to an electric bike”, but we have certainly heard the opposite! Guarantee the good times, keep your group together and have a fun day out there. E-bikes are a game changer and make this ride so much more fun!
Venues on offer in the Gibbston Valley: wineries, a tavern and good food.
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.
A stunning setting with a lovely outdoor area to enjoy. Great food and wine are available here.
Built in Wangaloa in 1894, this old church was relocated to Gibbston in the early 2000’s. Today instead of hymns and sermons it serves up local wines and good vibes.
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.
The Rockburn Cellar Door offers relaxed tastings of their award winning wines in a unique setting, at the iconic Gibbston Tavern. A pure expression of Central Otago in your glass.
The newest addition to the valley, and little sister of the Gibbston Tavern, the GT Tasting Room offers a selection of local wines, gins, distilled spirits, and ginger beers.
A great place to visit, Brennan is located at the end of the valley. While you’re here, have a go at petanque.
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.
