Rockburn Wines opens its new tasting room, the Rockburn Stables, at the Gibbston Tavern this week - just in time for the start of the ski season and school holidays.  

After a few successful seasons, Rockburn is moving its tasting room from the Art Gallery into the larger Stables at the historic tavern, offering wine lovers unique food and wine experiences in a charming setting.

“Nestled in between New Zealand’s premier ski fields, Cardrona and the Remarkables, and only a short drive from Queenstown incl. its airport, the Rockburn Stables offer a fantastic après ski destination this winter”, says Tim Severne, General Manager of Rockburn Wines.

The Gibbston Tavern and Rockburn Cellar Door are adjacent to the Gibbston River Trail, which links directly to the Queenstown Trails making it a handy stopover for travelers, bikers and walkers alike. Queenstown is only a 25-minute drive away just off SH6.  

Private and boutique group tastings are available on request.
