Waipara Wine Trail (including platter lunch) - 2 people
Christmas gift idea for those who appreciate fine wine or tourists coming to NZ and wanting to experience our Fine Wines
This tour explores 4 of North Canterbury’s boutique vineyards. From Christchurch we drive 45 minutes north through the
New Zealand countryside to the Waipara Valley, well known for its warm, dry climate and rich alluvial soils, ideal for superior
wine production. Over 40 vineyards and wineries pepper the landscape of the valley, with pinot noir, riesling, chardonnay and
sauvignon blanc dominating local plantings.
The first stop is at Waipara Springs Winery, where both a tasting of their wines and a plattered lunch has been arranged for
your enjoyment. You will also stop for tastings at Pegasus Bay, Waipara Hills and Greystone Winery.
(Should any of the above named wineries be unavailable on the day, an alternative winery in the Waipara area will be included)
