Chard Farm is beautifully located overlooking the Kawarau River Gorge. Just 20 miles, the farm is quite reachable from Queenstown as well. The farm dates back to 1860, originally being a regular farm producing food for the mining workers of the district in the late 19th century, while a vineyard was fully grown in the late 1980s, and the winery was set up in 1993. The farm is open for a soulful wine tasting experience on all seven days of the week.
The farm is known to produce the premium range of Pinor Noir and also produces the native Pinot Gris, Riseling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. The cellar door welcomes the wine tasters with a spectacular view of the Kawarau River Gorge and the colourful mountains. Wine tasting is free for those who purchase some wine, and if someone doesn’t want to purchase it, the hosts request them to make a small donation to the local hospital. Although there is no restaurant or café on the premises, some dining options around the farm, like the Gibbston Valley Winery Restaurant and the Gibbston Valley Cheesery & Deli, are available within 2 miles of the farm.
