Upon a recommendation from another Gibbston Valley Winery, I found myself at Brennan on a beautiful, busy Sunday afternoon. A 15$ tasting (waived with purchases) includes 7 wines of your choice. I found a couple of the whites too sweet for my liking, yet did...More

Wines were awesome, atmosphere cousy and the views were absolutely gorgeous / one of the best in this area. Definitely worth visiting. Quiet and not so turistic compared to others.

Spent a couple of hours at this small vineyard. Our host was so knowledgeable and friendly and the wines were superb, particularly the 2014 Pinot Noir!

Great spot in the Gibbston Valley. Much quieter than the other wineries but the wines are superb and so is the setting. Enjoy a game of bocce sipping a world class Pinot, then settle in for a fantastic platter. Yum yum yum

Walked in for a tasting, but were completely ignored as he was too busy with 1 other tasting. They look interesting but service isn’t great. Went to Peregrine winery instead just down the road, nice wines (especially the dry Riesling) and very good service.
