Practices & Techniques
Estate Vineyards / AVA
Waipara is a popular wine destination, strategically placed at latitude 45 degrees south, where the valley enjoys high sunshine hours and mild temperate conditions. Flanked on the west by the Torlesse Mountains and in the east by the Tevoit range this valley is well suited for intensive viticulture, as the cold easterly trade winds blowing off the cool Pacific Ocean, are blocked by the majestic and rugged Teviot Hills. The soils are also ideally suited to viticulture as they vary right across the board from concentrated limestone to Glasnevin gravels to loamy patches on clay and shingle. Waipara Valley is now one of the fastest expanding viticulture areas in New Zealand, with many big wine producers owning large acreages within the valley.
