We stumbled upon this winery a short distance from Queenstown. We were hoping to get a bite with a tasting but, alas, no food. But the wine was quite good. We wound up buying several bottles even though it meant we'd have to lug them back across the Pacific and North America. They also recommend a place just down the... More

What a great tasting. A room full of punters wanting a taste, being served by 1 person and she managed to make us all feel special. Oh and the wines were delicious.

The drive to the winery is beautiful (note: the driveway is narrow, and you are driving along a steep drop). The wine is delicious, and we bought two bottles of the Pinot Noir. A wonderful stop, and a great excuse to drive around Central Otago.

Down a long winding gravel road opposite the Kawarau Bungy jumping site, Chard Farm was one of the pioneers in Central Otago winemaking. It has flourished, and it's a great venue for a wine tasting, and a chance to catch up on some history of the region.

It is a very cute winery, with beautiful surrounding and a free wine tasting with very kind staff. They do suggest a donation if you do not buy any wines, which we did since Riesling was quite good! The road to the winery is a trip on its own, I barely made my bf drive it. But do, you will... More

We turned up on spec for a tasting that had no cover charge. We were told we'd be able to taste 5 wines but the cellar was quite quiet once a party had left and staff were in a chatty mood and enthusiastic to find us wines we would like. We tasted 7 or was it 8? All really lovely... More

My partner Claire and I enjoyed some beautiful wine here at Chard Farm one cold winters afternoon The Pinot Gris was an absolute delight and is definitely recommended The only slight down side, the area for tasting can get a little cramped quite quickly and with people queuing to pay at the till for purchases, it leaves little room for...
