At Waipara Hills savor delectable dishes paired with tastings of the vineyard's very own wines. The winery is known for crafting rich aromatics with vibrant and complex flavor, specializing in pinot gris, Riesling, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and pinot noir. Post up on the outside patio overlooking the landscaped gardens and adjacent vineyard with a bowl of hearty pasta or mouth-watering charcuterie board.

  • Dennis is an amazing guide, was so nice of him to take his time and explain not only how to taste the wine, but why I liked some of the wine more than others. Watch out though he is a good salesman and you might end up spending more than you planned
  • Nice view on the terrace outside. The seafood platter was really delicious but the taste plate dessert was less convincing. Very nice wines as well. Perfect place for a stop over lunch.
  • Wines are great and the view is awesome, while customer service is needed to greatly improve for the vine tasting experience. The front staff was smile-less and had no willing to introduce the wine. Terrible experience here and never come back again. Almost staffs were chatting in front of the coffee machine and few staff welcome customers. Wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Great place to spend Sunday afternoon , sit in the sun eat great meals and drink fine wines. Meals are quite large and easily shared, the wine matching is helpful. I had the mussels and chorizo, great. As was the beef ragout Friendly staff and no smoking, that I noticed, nearby
  • Nice wine and food. Beautiful buildibg
