    Fabulous wine tasting and platter experience
    I was already a massive fan of their Tigermoth Riesling, and we were pleased to be able to drop by in person for the first time. Very warmly welcomed by Marcia who guided us through a great selection of wines (love their rose and pinot gris as well), and a fantastic platter put together by Olivia. Highly recommend visiting. A wee gem not visible from the main road but just a stone’s throw once you turn off it.

    Fantastic afternoon, we will be back!
    So so good! Had to go back the next day and do it all again. Fantastic range of red and white and a stunning rosē. Marcia and the team had all round knowledge of the wines and were very accommodating with a superb gourmet platter to go with the tasting. Needless to say there are a few bottles on their way home. A must try.

    Great tasting experience, dog friendly
    Thoroughly enjoyed our tasting experience alongside a lovely cheese platter. Very dog friendly- our pooch Daphne was welcomed with open arms and lots of scratches. Came away with 4 bottles to take home and our wine tasting fee was scrapped. Highly recommended.

    Amazing- Reserves tasting
    Thank you so much to Alex who did the most amazing wine tasting with the reserves option! For a family of 4 we had a wine tasting with 6 wines with an amazing option of if you buy 6-12 wines all of your tasting is free! The knowledge and hospitality of Alex made us want to stay and fill our bellies with great wine! We will be back and buying Rockburn wine any chance we get!

    Service with a smile!
    A million thanks to Marcia, she was an amazing host! You could feel her passion for the region and the wines grown there. She took her time with everyone and made sure we all enjoyed our time at Rockburn. We loved it so much that we got a few bottle to take back home to Adelaide!

    Excellent and Knowledgeable
    We were host a guest in the wonderful Central Otago region where we live part time. Unfortunately we had just experience some very disappointing service at another winery so tried Rockburn just by chance. Nothing much to look at from the outside and likewise inside is not “glam”. The experience, however, was superb. This was all down to the wonderful knowledge, care and character of Alex, the Manager. Well done Alex! If you are a Pinot Noir lover they do have something special there,,, We would recommend!

    Great variety of wine, wonderful staff, beautiful place
    So lovely! Marcia was so kind and accommodating. We tried one of the flights and were blown away by the diversity of wines. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting, and you can even rent an E-Bike in Queenstown and bike here for a visit.

    Amazing wine experience with grapes of awe inspiring wrath
    We were treated like royalty! And given such amazing tastings we could scarcely hold back our wallets! Marcia (Clarke) was the true star who with rapid fire, thrust a pallet of flavours and colours upon us to create a complete Monet by the end.

Rockburn, we need a wine club with international shipping!

    Personal service
    My sister and I were warmly greeted by Alex, who was very friendly and spent time introducing each wine which she selected according to our tastes. She gave us a personalized experience which we loved and we came away very happy. We highly recommend a visit to Rockburn and will visit again when in the region.

We had a lovely tasting experience here. The staff are very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. The range of wines we tried were wonderful. I would recommend booking during peak times as the venue is small and cosy.

We dropped into the Rockburn tasting room on our way to Queenstown airport and were glad we did. Marcia was a lovely host and gave us good descriptions of the wines. The wines were delicious and there were some interesting surprises.
Well worth a visit!

We showed up near closing time but our great host Marcia was unhurried and generous and gave us a good, informative tasting, while also giving us space to sit back and enjoy the wines. She kindly went off-menu to give us a taste of the latest Stolen Kiss after we mentioned it was our wedding wine. Also liked "The Art" Pinot Noir.

What a great wine tasting hosted by Marcia - even though it was very busy, she ensured that we were well looked after. We will be back on our next visit to Queenstown

We had the most lovely tasting with Marcia. Despite a very busy day for the tasting room we felt well looked after and had a fabulous service and a very enjoyable tasting. Loved the wines, we were particularly surprised by the fume blanc - delicious! Thanks you Marcia xxx

We travelled to NZ on honeymoon and spent a day on e-bikes touring the Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) region. Marcia was very helpful, generous with her wine and her advice, and made us feel very welcome. A cute little spot with a pizza joint next door and a very varied selection of wines to choose from. Would recommend.
