In 1988, Amisfield Vineyard was formed around a simple philosophy: to nurture nature at every step. Nestled within the harsh yet beautiful surrounds of Central Otago, New Zealand, we prefer to let nature and the talents of our skilled team do the work.
The privately owned 200 hectare estate, once a prominent high country merino station, is now one of the largest single vineyard estates in the Central Otago region. With over 80 hectares planted beneath the Pisa mountain range, the Amisfield experience extends to a world-class Bistro and Cellar Door at Lake Hayes, Queenstown. Here, guests can experience the array of wines we produce every year.
Opened in 2005, the Bistro offers our signature ‘Trust the Chef’ menu – our famous dining experience.
Our philosophy of pure wine matched with pure food showcases the best New Zealand produce from farmers and producers who share our passion, You can take comfort in knowing everything on your plate has been sourced sustainably.
We call it ‘The best of nature to savour’ and it’s easy to see why. The food is an elegant expression of seasonal ingredients, creating the ultimate complement to our wines.
Eating at Amisfield is always a memorable experience. Excellent professional, yet friendly staff.
Very interesting experience, however it was rather rushed with a cut off point of 8.00pm
Beautiful degustation with matching wines. 10/10
We loved our lunch at Amisfield. The plates were presented so beautifully and we were talking about the dishes and the whole experience for days. Big thank you to our servers - Kevin and the other lady (apologies for not getting her name!) and all the other servers who were so professional and amazing. And of course a big thanks to Yann and his team in the kitchen, for their amazing food!
This is the fourth time our group has been to Amisfield and it always delivers. Great surroundings and first class food. Keep it going, we'll be back!
Stunning location and it was fun to "Trust the Chef". Divine wine & a really fun way to spend the afternoon. Thanks
Excellent all round!
Fantastic. The food, the wine...taken to a magical place. Thanks Chloe, love your passion for wine and fantastic service. Thanks to all at Amisfield for a life memorable experience.
A truly wonderful experience. The food, the wine...heavenly. Thanks Chloe for your enthusiasm and professionalism.
Beautiful ambiance, food, wine & service. Would highly recommend.
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic lunch there with our 10 month old in tow. Our waiter was great. Very knowledgeable about the dishes and matched wines. He was very friendly and really made our afternoon special. Thank you so much for a great memory of Queenstown. We will be back one day!
A very relaxing lunch in the sun
Fantastic food and incredible service from Alex
Absolutely fantastic experience - the venue and wine was terrific and the food was outstanding. One of the best dining experiences ever - Trust the Chef with matching wines is a culinary journey and excellent value.
We had a fantastic experience at Amisfield! Every course was immaculate and unique, and our server was amazing. It was expensive, but absolutely worth it. The only feedback I could give is that for the price, charging for a coffee at the end felt unnecessary.
Very Friendly Staff. Thanks.
Great food and ambiance.
One of our party would have liked to see the menu prior to eating but the rest of us were very happy with the excellent descriptions by your staff. Amisfield had been highly recommended by a couple of friends so our anticipation was high....we were not disappointed!
It was a wonderful dinner, 99% was perfect! The service was amazing, the dishes were beautifully well prepared and the ambient was formidable! For sure a second attempt will be made! Thank you!
A great experience! We enjoyed delicious dishes that let us discover local flavore paired with amazing wines. We were lucky to enjoy lunch in the garden of this beautiful venue and were excellently taken care of by Kevin. All was perfect - highly recommended!
Possibly the option of a la carte as opposed to compulsory to have set menu.
Just another stunning "Trust the Chef" day at Amisfield!!
Seamless experience, beautiful setting, knowledgeable yet friendly welcoming service, great food and some beautiful wines.
Always enjoy dining with you. Best food in Queenstown and loved the cocktails too. Thank you
Absolutely sensational day and the food and wine was superb. I recommend the wine pairing . What a day!
