Description: Gibbston is a tightly knit community with a renowned special character - so much so that even the District Plan acknowledges this very special character in its zoning and planning rules! It's not hard to see why though - crisp clean air, hot summer days, and a valley that is dwarfed by ruggedly beautiful schist mountains. Gibbston is frequently referred to as the Valley of the Vines. And this is a place where you will definitely want to live, play and work in.
The First Paddock is a story in itself as well. Inspired by the famous actor, Sam Neill, this is the original vineyard in the prized Two Paddocks stable. Planted in the heart of Gibbston in 1993, there is 4.61 hectares planted fully in Pinot Noir. Taking this a step further, The First Paddock is certified organic and makes the most of the auspicious Gibbston climate that favours organic practices with its low humidity and natural soil health. The wine from this vineyard is award-winning and consistently proven to produce amazing wine year after year.
The land itself provides for ample room to build your dream home with space to graze a pony or three, or develop a multitude of other lifestyle opportunities. Or think bigger and build a Cellar Door to compliment the other vineyards and wineries in the area. The opportunities are endless as the space is all here.
Easily accessed yet off the beaten track, this property is so handy to a quick tipple down the road or travel 10 minutes further into quaint Arrowtown or 25 minutes into downtown Queenstown and all it has to offer. There is so much to enjoy in Gibbston and properties like The First Paddock are rarely available. Genuinely for sale, the owners are in a new stage of growth which means they have had to make the reluctant decision to move this auspicious property on.
Once part of the Gibbston community you will never want to leave so give us a call and come and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
