Waipara Springs

Waipara Springs Winery is located in the heart of the Waipara Valley, a 45 minute drive north of Christchurch in Canterbury. The region's alkaline soils are part of a prehistoric lake bed and consist of clay and limestone, the perfect home for vines. The vineyards are sheltered from the prevailing easterly winds by the Teviotdale mountain range, and the combination of high midsummer heat and relatively low rainfall during the growing season with long warm days and cold nights during harvest provide ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit.

The Wairpara Springs property was established by the Moore and Grant Families. Bruce and Jill Moore have lived on the property for many years and together they planted the first grapevines in the region back in 1982. Waipara Springs puts a strong emphasis on vineyard management, with a small team of experienced workers diligently tending the vines throughout the growing season. Because all of the wines are crafted from estate grown fruit, the quality is carefully controlled at every stage from the vine to the bottle. New French oak barriques are purchased each year and the winery upgrades its equipment regularly.

Waipara Springs has long produced a range of wines that consistently wins national and international acclaim. From succulent Sauvignon Blanc, fine Riesling and rich Chardonnay to intensely concentrated Pinot Noir, Waipara Springs has always set a high standard in New Zealand wine.
