Rippon Winery

Excellent wine & views

Getting Ready to Harvest

Kind of tough to focus on the wine here while you’re tasting, as magnificent views north over Lake Wanaka are totally captivating. Rippon also holds weddings!

The wine at this family-owned, lakeside vineyard is also good, so make sure to try the full range, including the Rippon Gamay, unusual in these parts. Check up-to-date Cellar Door opening times on the website.
