Our Pick: Amisfield Wine Company

A short twenty minutes' drive from the centre of Queenstown, Amisfield Winery & Bistro on Lake Hayes Road is an establishment that has to be seen to be believed. An incredible stone structure set against spectacular scenery, it was the winner of Best Winery Restaurant in The Cuisine Restaurant of the Year Awards 2007, and was a finalist again in 2009.

The country bistro-style kitchen offers a daily changing menu of organic, regional produce served in simple style to match Amisfeld's wines, which they like to say are "grown, not made".

Their chef has cleverly created a menu to compliment the range of estate grown wines – which can be enjoyed either in their architecturally award winning winery or stunning courtyard setting – known as the 'Trust the Chef' menu.

It is available at three price points -  $55.00 per person for the menu alone, $70.00 per person for the menu and dessert , and $100.00 per person for the menu and dessert with four matching wines. Dishes include Linguini with lemon, chilli and fried bread crumbs, Roast eggplant, chickpeas, tomato, tahini and mint, and Pork belly and red chilli harrissa, which is perfectly matched with a glass of Amisfield Lowburn Terrace Riesling 2007.

The incredible spot is also a popular wedding venue, as along with the award-winning food, you can pretty much guarantee that each photo taken will be indescribably beautiful. Dinner bookings are essential during busy periods, so do make sure that you email or phone in advance.
