Nurturing grapes this far south requires efforts but one sip of the local pinot noir will tell you the hard work is totally valuable.The Gibbston Valley is also recognized as the 'Valley of the Vines' which is one of the most scenic wine growing areas you'll ever encounter. Vineyards are combined sometimes precariously between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge.This high altitude area under discussion is subject to cold winters, hot dry summers and a huge night-to-day temperature range. These demanding conditions have led to constantly superb wines, worldwide acknowledgment and an avalanche of international awards. More than 70% of the grapes developed here are pinot noir; other varieties counting chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling and sauvignon blanc.
