Eight Ranges, three hectares, two good wine lovers and a couple of kids who love nothing more than to put on gumboots and go rabbit hunting through the vineyard.

Brian and Rebecca Gibbs came from a busy life in the tech and medical industries but with a love for good wine (and we imagine a bit of cash) purchased this small Central Otago vineyard in the middle of the Alexandra Basin overlooking the Clutha River.

Purchased in 2016, Brian and Rebecca set up their A-team with legendary Central winemaker Matt Connell and James Dicey in the vineyard.

This is their 2022 vintage Pinot Gris and scoring 93/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “An initial suggestion of sweetness is nicely balanced by mouth-watering acidity to give a pleasantly dry(ish) finish.”

And scoring 4 Stars in Cuisine magazine’s 2023 Pinot Gris tasting the judges said “Although there is some sweetness present the palate is light, crisp and moreish.”

And if you’re wondering where the Eight Ranges comes from – they’re the ranges that surround the vineyard. The Remarkables, The Cairnmuir, The Pisa, The Dunstan, The Hawkdun, The Raggedy, The Old Man and The Old Woman.
