Just 45 minutes north of Christchurch on State Highway 1, set amongst the vineyards, is the iconic stone building that’s home to Waipara Hills. Here you’ll discover an operating winery, Cellar Door and bistro style cafe.
It's the extreme natural environments of the mountains, hills and valleys of the South Island that gives the wine of Waipara Hills its intensity, character and complexity - wine that expresses the true soul of the south.
At Waipara Hills our philosophy is simple. It's about allowing the characteristics of each season's fruit to shine, then creating perfect balance with as little interference as possible. The result is wine that is rich, vibrant and bursting with complex flavour.
For us every harvest signals the beginning of a new adventure, the chance to create wine that is distinctly from our place - a place where from contrast comes beauty.
