Waipara Valley

New Zealand’s pantry is on our doorstep.

The Waipara Valley has a proud history of being a paradise of food producers, with an ideal climate and soil, forests rich with wild game, market gardens, farms, truffières, rivers and coastlines.

The Waipara Valley in North Canterbury is an internationally renowned destination for food, wine and nature.

Immerse yourself in an abundant and truly local experience of taste, surrounded by breath-taking panoramic vistas.

The region is home to more than 90 vineyards, most of them independently owned by a close-knit community of local families.

With some of the country’s most diversified land formations, from the volcanic Banks Peninsula to the clay and limestone soils of the Waipara and Waikari valleys, the region lends itself to highly varied and interesting soil types.

Devour and indulge in our feast of local delights.
