After stopping at Lake Hayes just north east of Queenstown, it was quite by accident that we ended up the amazing Stoneridge Estate. Having wanted to visit a nice vineyard since I first came to New Zealand I couldn’t have picked a better one. They are mainly a wedding venue. In fact when we arrive there was a wedding happening in their small chapel. However we had a private wine tasting in a different building on the Estate. This old barrel was in the garden, which was beautiful.
