Cruise north of Christchurch for half an hour or so and you’ll hit the Waipara Valley wine making region. The Waipara Hills vineyard boasts some pretty stunning views of the mountains, hills and valleys it neighbours.
They’ve got a café on site serving food and platters and if you hit ’em during the summer months you might catch one of their mean summer gigs. Oh, and the wines are pretty bloody good value too!
Finding decent Pinot on a shoe string budget ain’t easy but this is a label that delivers every time. This one’s got loads of bright and juicy berry fruit flavours – a crowd pleasing style that won’t break the bank. If you’re looking for the ideal food match you can’t really go wrong with lamb, duck and game dishes.
