Waipara Valley is the fastest-growing wine region in New Zealand. Located 40 minutes’ drive north of Christchurch, Waipara Valley is also the country’s fourth-largest wine region; home to over 1400ha of vines. The broad range of soil types, from gravelly deposits to limestone soil and alluvial subsoil, coupled with the natural sun-trap of the valley enable the viticulturalists of Waipara to produce expansive, award-winning wines of real character.
