The Waipara Valley in north Canterbury, is Canterbury's premier wine-growing region, and is about 50 minutes' drive north of Christchurch.
Waipara is one of the fastest growing wine producing regions in New Zealand, currently boasting around 31 wineries and over 1250 hectares of vines. The region is an ideal cool-climate grape growing area. Best known for exquisitely spicy and rich Pinot Noirs and Rieslings, the region has a great reputation for other aromatic varieties such as Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer as well as its own distinctive take on Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Recent investment in the region by some of New Zealand's larger wine producers, means that Waipara is set to become a major player in the New Zealand wine industry.
