Driving through the region from Kaikoura to Christchurch and wondering wether to stop for a wine tasting in the area as knew,nothing about the wines produced here and always keen to learn. Decided on Waipara Springs thinking that if they did not want to do the wine tasting we could quite understand as it was getting late. The guy who served us was quite happy to do the tasting and it turned out to be such a lovely experience. The guy, Andrew, happened to be the owner along with his wife. He told us some lovely stories about how his father had started the business in the early 80. The wines were all very pleasant on a hot sunny day, we bought a bottle and had a Pinot gris from the Waipara region with our evening meal in Christchurch. Would have loved to have had a meal in their restaurant, people sat outside in the lovely sun, it was such a nice setting. Thank you Andrew for making us feel very welcome and teaching us about the Waipara wine region.

Our tour group stopped here for a wine tasting and lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the five wines we tasted and the setting for lunch was lovely.

Very lovely service and ambiance but the food is really expensive for the quality :)
There are better wines in the area but enjoyable to taste either way.

The Waipara Springs team hosted our group of 38 people for a 50th wedding anniversary lunch. It was superb. The organisation, friendliness, food, wine and service from the staff was top notch. Thank you to Tania, Katie and Andrew for a very memorable experience.

Stopped here for lunch and so glad we did.
Great service and great setting.
The white wine platter was very good especially the salmon terrine and the pâté.
Great Chardonnay too! Hope to return.

We cycled the Waipara valley trail and ended up at this winery for lunch. Delicious mains and sumptuous desserts, complemented by good wines. We enjoyed the garden setting and the relaxed atmo sphere. Good service and a great destination.

Dropped in to break my trip. Winery is well worth a visit. The food was delicious and it went down with a amazing glass of Pinot Gris wine. Definitely worth a visit.
