About Us - Gibbston Valley Cheese Company



Located in Queenstown's Valley of Vines, high in the southern mountains, Gibbston Valley Cheese specialises in sheep, cow and goat milk cheeses hand-crafted in the European style.

This unique visitor experience features a café, retail shop, cheese-making presentation and complimentary tastings of the Gibbston Valley Cheese range.


We also offer picnic hampers so you can follow our recommend Wine and Cheese Trail throughout the Gibbston Valley.




All of our cheese range is GE Free and is made from pasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.


The sunny outdoor area is perfect to enjoy a tasty platter of assorted cheeses, nuts, meats, breads and fruits and you can complement the flavours with a glass of wine from the adjacent Gibbston Valley Wines.


We also have a retail shop with gift boxes, homewares and deli items sourced from New Zealand's most innovative suppliers.

Gibbston Valley Cheese gift boxes are the ideal corporate gift and are also a great way to say thank you or happy birthday. As we courier directly from our cheesery to the recipient, we can take the hassle out of Christmas shopping for you too.
