Great place for lunch

They only do platters for lunch and my goodness they do a great job. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff.
We sat in the courtyard and felt we had been transported to Tuscany. A lovely place.

Excellent lunch platter

We had nooked to come here for lunch last time we were in NZ two years ago, but my husband was taken ill so we couldn’t make it. So we were back again staying in the area and decided to make up for last time. We were unsure as I am vegetarian and my husband doesn’t like seafood, but they will put together a platter to suit. It was worth the wait. The staff are lovely, from all parts of the world , and it was interesting to talk to them about how they came to Giesen. We even had a dessert, which was a lemon cake, and it was superb. The surroundings of the restaurant are lovely, the people are lovely, and after that we got to do a free wine-tasting as we had had lunch there. The lady who did the wine-tasting for us (Nikki?) was great and very informative. We also tried the new 0% alcohol new wine coming out on the market soon. Definitely worth the visit.

Wine tasting

We have just been to Geisen cellar door. We have been to many areas and have had many wine tastings. We would highly recommend to have a tastings here. Naomi made it special. She was very knowledgeable , understood the wines, the clientele needs. Would highly recommend the tastings the vineyard and the wine.

Naomi made it a truly memorable tasting. the August sav Blanc was a stand out surprise and we really enjoyed the pinots.

The best winery platter by far!

Fantastic service, professional and friendly and knowledgeable staff in a beautiful peaceful garden setting (or inside if you prefer). Food was amazing - only two platters on offer on the menu but these could be modified to suit number of people on request and dietary requirements. The food was beautifully presented, tasty and good value for money. Wine matching available and all good quality and flavours. I look forward to a return trip.

Cellar door with Naomi

The best cellar door experience in New Zealand! We’ve been travelling for 4 weeks and have visited many vineyards - Naomi was the most wonderful and knowledgable guide we’ve encountered so far. If you want a tailored, friendly and knowledgeable guide to some fantastic wines then visit here and ask for Naomi!

Sponsor Luke so he can stay in NZ

We had a great time visiting today, Luke was great and a laugh and a half! He definitely deserves to ’sponsored’ so he can stay in NZ!

Great wine & great platters

Giesen brothers, have got some great wines going, even at the top end of the scale.Have visited a lot with visiting friends, as they also serve great variety of platters. After wine tasting you can order a platter, a glass of your favourite drop, & just chill with your friends

Service needs improvement

Visited with the hope of a delicious shared platter and a glass of wine. Service was really well-intentioned but poor. Young staff without much of a system in place for seating tables or managing the flow of guests. Platter was well priced at $39 and yummy, two green lip mussels only, but generous portions of chutney, jams, cheese, smoked fish, chicken pate, potted salmon and charcuterie. We had two glasses of organic Sauvignon Blanc, which were tasty. Outdoor seating area was cold, however, but around a water fountain and a pleasant courtyard.
