What to Expect

Indulge in a day of wine tasting in the Waipara wine area, renowned for its warm, dry climate and limestone-rich soils — ideal for growing the premium quality grapes that produce some of New Zealand’s most distinctive wine.

Following pickup from central Christchurch, your guide takes you on a 50-minute drive to Waipara. Visit cellars and tasting rooms during guided tours of some of the finest boutique vineyards in North Canterbury, sample a distinctive selection of classic varietals (see below) and enjoy a fresh, seasonal platter for a lunch that pairs well with your wine, before drop-off back in Christchurch.

The wineries:


  • Pegasus Bay Winery: discover sustainable viticulture used to bring out the complex flavours and fruit character of the wines, featuring world renowned dessert wines and elegant Pinot Noirs. 

  • Torlesse Wines: Two ranges produced from 4 vineyard sites including the Winery Block and the Mackenzie Vineyards. Varieties include Gewurztraminer, Albarino and 10 year old Tawny.

  • Greystone Wine: North Canterbury's most awarded winery. Varieties include Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Giles’ favourite Chardonnay – you may also get the opportunity to taste the wines from the adjacent Muddy Water Winery.
