Specialising in aromatics; visitors to the Cellar Door can sample award winning Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
At Waipara Hills our winemaking philosophy is simple. It’s about working with each season to create perfect balance. The result is wine rich, vibrant and true to our region – a place from where contrast comes beauty.
Our chef creates seasonal dishes that pair perfectly with Waipara Hills wines. Spend an afternoon with friends in the sunny courtyard or stay inside in the warm comfort of the cosy cloisters. With an operating winery on site, our experienced staff operate winery tours at 11.00am and 3.00pm daily. We can also cater to weddings, private functions, conferences and even music concerts. We look forward to hosting you.
