At Waipara Hills our wine growing philosophy is simple. It’s about creating perfect balance, encouraging the characteristics of each season’s fruit to shine, whilst celebrating South Island vineyards.
The result is wine that is rich, textural and bursting with complex flavour.
Waipara Hills is delighted to be aligned, once again, with The Food Show, Whirlpool Cooking Theatre in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.
This fantastic programme allows visitors to gather ideas for home entertaining and learn from local and international food experts.
We look forward to showcasing our classic wine varieties alongside some of New Zealand’s top chefs in these not to be missed theatre classes.
