Rockburn Wines has opened its first-ever Pop-Up Cellar Door at the Gibbston Tavern Art Gallery. The “Pop-Up” offers informal tastings of Rockburn’s award-winning wines in a unique setting, being situated in the Art Gallery of the iconic Central Otago tavern.

Guests of this popular tavern currently enjoy a wide selection of drinks along with wood fired pizzas straight from a custom-made pizza oven. The oven was made from parts of the the old hotel bank where patrons from the gold rush days would keep their gold for safekeeping.

“With one of our key vineyards only a few minutes away on Gibbston Back Road, it’s great to welcome visitors in the heart of the renowned Gibbston Valley,” said Rebecca Poynter, general manager of Rockburn Wines. The new “Pop-Up” is only a 25-minute drive from Queenstown just off SH6 and alongside the popular Gibbston River cycle trail which makes an ideal location for local wine lovers and tourists alike. The Gibbston Tavern is a fantastic venue and now guests can not only visit them for a great casual outdoor dining experience, but also enjoy a tasting of award-winning local wines on site as well.”
