You can have cheese with matched beers but we just had a five cheeses platter. The cheese was delicious , especially the Wakatipu White (double cream Brie), accompanied with crackers, dips and sources. Sitting outside next to the grape vines admiring the view is a awesome way to spend a couple of hours.

We shared a cheese platter with 3 generous portions of cheese (more crackers were required but bought promptly). The aged cheddar was my favourite. We had a glass of Pinot Gris and admired the Autumn scenery from the lovely verandah out front. Very relaxing and beautiful.

The smoked brie is delicious. I got a tasting board with wine to accompany. While I was not a fan of one of the cheeses (personal preference) the quality of service and food was superb.

Great cheese. Service was great. Wine tour was excellent. What we thought would be a quick drop in and taste turned into 3 hours with a tour.

It is well worth the stop when we were headed for Cromwell from Arrowtown. We ordered a baked cheese platter which turned ou to be a wonderful light meal. Simply irresistible!

A quick stop at the Gibbston Cheesery nestled amongst the Arrowtown wineries is well worth a visit. Sample the cheeses on offer before selecting your favourites for a tasting plate. Wine and cider selections compliment the cheese board perfectly. The presentation was outstanding!

Grabbed cheese to take with us. Our host was happy to provide us with a tasting and make recommendations. Friendly guy and delicious cheese. Can't go wrong. Sheeps cheese was a standout. As is their blue.

We stopped in here for a light lunch and it was very quaint and had really good food. We purchased several things from the shop and had an amazing time in a really neat little area.
