EAT WITH US

HOME GROWN

Things don’t travel very far before you eat them at Sherwood. On a piece of land that was covered with bracken, a few wilding pines and an abandoned kitchen sink, we created a large vegetable garden, which we farm under organic principles. It changes the way we cook: growing seasons in Queenstown are shorter because of our southerly position, so particular varieties of plants come and go very quickly, and we have to take advantage of that.

IF WE CAN'T GROW IT OR FORAGE FOR IT, WE BUY IT LOCALLY

LOCAL AND SUSTAINABLE

We gather produce from all over Central Otago – wild thyme and rosemary, highly fragrant and full of flavour from the craggy hills of the Kawarau Gorge, Birch Bolette mushrooms from a secret spot somewhere above Lake Hayes, elderflower, fruit, nuts and berries from trees that grow wild around the basin, many planted by early settlers in a bid to give themselves something to eat.

A SENSE OF PLACE

We draw inspiration from the landscapes we call home. The ingredients, flavours, colours and textures of our food and drink reflect the changing seasons and we look forward to welcoming you in.

OUR PRODUCERS

DUNCAN FORSYTH

Wine Maker / Community champion

Getting involved in the burgeoning Central Otago wine industry while contributing to the local community seem the most natural thing in the world to Duncan Forsyth. Not content to lead the development of organic wine making practice in the region through his Gibbston Valley winery, Mt Edward, Duncan has also overseen the establishment of Queenstown's spectacular community run LUMA festival of light.

In the spirit of generosity and leadership, they've become famous for, Mt Edward was the first local winery to make wine for our house bottled programme.

The team at Mt Edward are committed to far more than making bloody great wine. As Duncan says, "if we want to leave any sort of legacy, it’s that in 200 years’ time people will still be talking about it. It will have become part of the social fabric. That starts with the understanding of our place and respect to Tangata Whenua."
