Mt Difficulty Wines is located in Bannockburn, well within an hour's drive of both Queenstown and Wanaka. The Cellar Door is known as much for its dramatic views of rugged rock and thyme landscapes as it is for its stylish wine.

On a fine day the outdoor terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy Mt Difficulty’s unique hospitality. During winter the view can be enjoyed from behind glass, with fireplaces providing warmth and ambience.

The dining environment is casual, and the menu features both platters and more substantial dishes which favour fresh, local ingredients.

Wine tasting and sales possible daily, with award winning Mt Difficulty and Roaring Meg wines.
