Our Vineyard & Wine
Our wine, La Bella Rosa, is crafted exclusively from the Pinot Noir grapes cultivated at the Mt Rosa Lodge vineyard, specifically clone 777. This Pinot Noir made its debut in 2008, marking the inaugural vintage from this small, distinctive, and privately owned single vineyard site.
We take immense pride in having Alan Brady, the founder of Gibbston Valley Wines, as our winemaker. La Bella Rosa is meticulously produced on a small scale, yielding just 4-5 barrels annually.
Experience the beauty of Gibbston valley with our Fiat 500 Wine Tour. Explore local vineyards, savour wine tastings, and enjoy the scenic journey. You're also welcome to join various viticultural activities held throughout the year at our vineyard. Moreover, we can assist with reservations and transportation arrangements in our local region, including Queenstown, Arrowtown, Wanaka, and Cromwell to make your stay even more enjoyable.
