Set within the region’s oldest founding vineyards, and nestled between rugged schist mountains, Gibbston Valley feels a million miles from anywhere. It’s the dream location for those looking for something truly special.
There are endless opportunities for an exquisite wedding. Whether it’s amongst rows of vines, in the Wine Cave, or up to an exclusive mountain location within the Gibbston Valley Station. Our range of venues provide stunning options for a variety of sizes, from an intimate ceremony to a grand-scale celebration.
Our unique, sophisticated and well-equipped events spaces offer luxury, style and impeccable, world-class service. Each space pays homage to Gibbston Valley, an iconic New Zealand winery, which is home to Queenstown’s oldest vines.
Carved deep into a mountain side, and lined with more than 400 French oak barrels of aging wine, our wine cave will make any occasion a memorable event.
Its atmospheric ambience makes it particularly popular for hosting an elegant dinner or a cocktail reception, for up to 28 guests, as well as for wedding ceremonies.
The Wine Vault is a spacious multipurpose venue with an abundance of natural light. The room’s elegant neutral décor is beautiful as is, or can easily be themed to suit any occasion. Vaulted ceilings lend themselves well to hanging flower arrangements or lighting.
The room holds a special place in our history as it’s where Gibbston Valley founder, Alan Brady, stored some of the first barrels of Pinot Noir produced.
Suitable for up to 80 guests in this space alone, an additional marquee attached to large opening doors, allows your event to flow into our courtyard. Total capacity including courtyard 110.

Suitable for up to 80 guests, this venue offers the most versatility and can include access to our lounge area, Cellar Door and courtyard area with additional outdoor seating, giving your guests lots of room to mix and mingle.
For summer weddings, the courtyard area is well suited for garden games, whilst the Cellar door, with its leather seating and fireplace, provides a warming ambience for winter weddings.
