Wine is definitely a passionate subject at Gantleys.
The wine list is extensive with over 250 labels on offer.
In 1996 Gantleys became the first restaurant in New Zealand to receive an Award of Excellence from the acclaimed New York Wine Spectator magazine. Every year since they have received the prestigious award.
Our wine list won the highest award of 5 Decanters (5 stars) - one of only 12 restaurants nationwide - in the New Zealand Wine List of the Year Awards
What's the philosophy behind the wine list?
"We are committed to having the very best vintage and regional grape varieties from New Zealand and around the world in our cellar. We are constantly sourcing wine at auction to ensure we keep it well stocked - it can become quite an expensive hobby."
Guests enjoy spending time in the wine library tucked away beside the bar. It's a superb ambience complete with crystal chandelier and comfortable leather armchairs - an ideal place to sample port, and cheese after dinner at the same time understanding more about the impressive wine labels which Gantleys selects.
