Last week, while driving to Hanmer Springs we stopped by this lovely countryside winery.
Just 45 minutes north of Christchurch on State Highway 1, set amongst the vineyards, is the iconic stone building that’s home to Waipara Hills. Here you’ll discover an operating winery, Cellar Door and bistro style cafe.
It’s the extreme natural environments of the mountains, hills and valleys of the South Island that gives the wine of Waipara Hills its intensity, character and complexity – wine that expresses the true soul of the South.
Along the way, we passed the lovely sights of this peaceful South Island countryside enroute to Hanmer Springs.
